Silence is golden, so stifle thyself: The Archie Bunker Quiz
by Maria Trimarchi

Were you a fan of the 1970s sitcom All in the Family? Did you watch every episode... twice? Do you still catch the reruns whenever possible? Then this quiz is for you. Let's find out how much you really remember about this iconic sitcom.

All in the Family, starring Carroll O'Connor and Jean Stapleton as Archie and Edith Bunker, and with Sally Struthers as their daughter, Gloria (and Rob Reiner as Gloria's husband, meathead... oh, we meant Michael Stivic), it was one of the most iconic sitcoms of all time. The show took on subjects such as rape, cancer, abortion, religion, homosexuality, racism, and other touchy subjects in an era when television was supposed to brush such subjects into the closet and under the rug. All in the Family showed that a television show could take on such topics and remain relevant, even popular, as it shared actual messages with the viewing public. And, as curmudgeonly as good old Archie was, his heart was... mostly... in the right place.

So, if All in the Family remains one of your all-time favorite television sitcoms, take this quiz to find out how much you know about the sitcom.

Let's get started now!
