Episode Info

All in the Family ventures into Rashomon territory when Archie and Mike offer two different versions of the same story. It all began when Archie called in a couple of repairmen to fix the Bunkers' refrigerator. According to Archie, the repair crew consisted of an intimidating Mafia don and a knife-wielding black gang-banger, while Mike insists that the two workers were a stereotypical musical-comedy Italian and an Amos 'N' Andy-style shuffler. It is up to Edith to tell the real story, without editorial interpolations. Ken Lynch and future Barney Miller co-star Ron Glass deliver bravura performances as repairmen Bob and Jack, while the regular cast members get to display their versatility as well. Written by Don Nicholl, "Everybody Tells the Truth" first aired on March 3, 1973.
