All in the Family featured the curmudgeonly Archie Bunker. Archie was television’s most famous grouch, blunt, blustering, straightforward and untouched by the PC crowd. He was the archetype of the conservative male. Michael desprately tried to reeducate him, but he persisted in his breviloquence.
Looking back at the last 40 years, we realize: ARCHIE WAS RIGHT!
"What's shaking, Norm?"
"All four cheeks and a couple of chins."

"What'd you like, Normie?"

"A little early, isn't it, Woody?"
"For a beer?"
"No, for stupid questions”."
