Sunday Stealing: Foxxfyrre Style part 2

The Basically Obscure Meme: Part 2

This week I've decided to participate in Sunday Stealing which is now brought to you by +Mr Lance , but was originated by +Bud Weiser many moons ago. Like everything I do, I put my own spin on things, like posting Sunday Stealing on a Thursday. This edition of Sunday Stealing I thought that I would use sponsors to complete the meme. So this Sunday Stealing is brought to you by the cast of

"All in the Family" 

The Cast Members will answer the questions for me. Sorry to those of you who are too young to remember All in the Family, but I recommend finding a retro channel or Youtube to get a taste of a large segment of television history. I hope you all enjoy this little trip down TV memory lane as much as I enjoyed writing it. Just for fun, the cast responses are not from the show, they are written by me (I tried to stay true to the characters),  all except for one line which is from the show. If you think you know which line is from the show, put your guess in comments. Let see who knows their All in the Family trivia!

The meme questions are the numbered ones, just so you know, but I know you did.

Warning, it might get a little loud in here.

21: Would you swear in front of your parents

Gloria: Are you kidding me? I haven't even told my father that Michael is Polish yet!

22: Which continents have you been on? 

Archie: Just one, the Good Ol' US of A.
Micheal: USA is only a country, North America is the continent, Arch.
Archie: The North and the South are all one, Meathead! Has been since Lincoln won the war back then see.
Gloria: No dad, Micheal's right. North America is the continent that includes the USA, Canad....
Archie: Stifle right there Gloria. See what you started Meathead, let me get the Funk and Wagn....
Micheal and Gloria: And Mexico!
Archie: Gggghheeeessss Louise! Will ya let me even read it before youse two spout off like that.

23: Do you get motion sickness? Any horror stories? 

Edith: Just this one time when your Father took me to Coney Island and he took me on the rides after I had too many Coney Fries.
Gloria: No Ma, I said morning sickness.
Edith: No...We went in the afternoon. 
Gloria: No Ma, m-o-r-n-i-n-g sickness
Edith: Oohh, OOOHHH Gloria!
Gloria: Yes Ma, morning sickness!
Edith: OOOOhhhh Gloria.....What are we going to tell Archie?

24: Why did you name your blog whatever you named your blog?
Archie: Speak American Meathead!
Michael: I am speaking English, Arch. A Blog is a new way to communicate with people everywhere.
Archie: And what's wrong with the phone? But don't youse be rackin' up no long distance charges.
Michael: No, a blog is more like a news paper that you can get your message through with.
Archie: And next you'll be telling me that you can read these messages on the phone.
Michael: I give up.
Archie: That was too easy, I didn't even have to tell you to stifle.

25: Would you wear a rainbow jacket? A neon yellow sweater? Checkered pants? 

Archie: What? You couldn't get the stains out George? I thought youse guys were good at that sort of thing.
George: No Archie, I meant...
Louise: That's it George, we're leaving. I told you you couldn't talk sense to Archie.
George: But Wheeesie...

26: What was your favorite cartoon growing up? Post a picture if you can. 

(Just to keep things in context)

27: In a past life I must have been a... 

Archie: You been drinking some of your top shelf stuff Kelsy?
Kelsy: No, I just meant that I've been thinking of moving on. You wouldn't be interested in buying the place, would you Arch?
Archie: Hmmm, I'll have to think about that. Maybe next year. 

28: If you had to look at one city skyline for the rest of your life, which would it be? 

(What skyline do you think I'd post with these sponsors on board)

29: Longest plane ride you've ever been on?
Archie: Going to your daughter Carol's wedding, Maude.
Maude: We were on all that flight Archie, and it was only for an hour and a half.
Archie: Exactly, you were on it.
Maude: Why you old...
Archie: (Raspberry)

30: The longest you've ever slept? 

Archie: During Carol and Pete's Wedding Service
Edith: But Archie, that was a beautiful Wedding Service. I remember we were all sitting in the family section in the Church.  Carol was wearing that blue brooch I gave her to wear for something blue. Maude bought her that beautiful pearl necklace for something new, and I gave her your black arm garter...
Archie: You gave her my what?
Edith: Your arm garter, we didn't have time to go shopping to get her a real garter for the garter toss and she needed something borrowed anyways.
Archie: That was my arm garter? I needed that for poker nights with the boys, you Dingbat. I had to go buy a new pair.
Edith: You didn't need to look for it, you were the one that caught the garter, don't you remember Archie?
Maude: And you pushed two bachelor's and Cousin Mickey over to catch it.
Archie: Gggghhheeeeeeess Louise! Will youse two stif....
Edith: And he still has it in his cuff-link box on the dresser.
Archie: Stifle Dingbat! It was a fine wedding until the Best Men showed up.
Maude: What men? There was only one Best Man.
Archie: Then it was you standing beside the guy standing beside Pete.
Maude: Archie, you're lucky I didn't lace this orange juice with Kaopectate!
Archie: (Raspberry)
Maude: I used X-lax instead.

31: Would you buy a sweater covered in kitten pictures? Would you wear it if someone gave it you for free? 

Edith: Oooh Gloria, you know your father wouldn't let me wear anything hippie.

32: Do you pluck your eyebrows? 

Michael: No Arch, I don't pluck my eyebrows.
Archie: Good. it's one thing having a Polack in the house, but it's another to...
Michael: Another to...what?
Archie: ...Have a hippie in the house.
Micheal: That's not what you were going to say, Archie,
Archie: That's exactly what I was going to say, Meathead.
Micheal: I don't think so Archie, you were going to say.....
Archie: Now don't youse be going putting no woyds in my mouth, Meathead. I know what I was going to say.

33: Favorite kind of bean? Kidney? Black? Pinto? 

Edith: Oh no Sir. Archie only eats the Frank and Beans.

34: How far can you throw a baseball? 

Sammy Davis Jr.: About as far as I can throw this Archie.

Archie: Well, what the hell--he said it was in his contract!

35: If you had to move to another country, where would you move? 

Gloria: With the baby coming, and you between jobs, you know the farthest we can move is next door.
Michael: But we can dream, can't we?

36: Have you ever eaten Ethiopian food? Vietnamese? Korean? Nepalese? How was it? 

Archie: No Edith, just order some good American food. 
Edith: I just thought you might like something from one of those new ethnic restaurants, but Okay I'll order some Italian from Mario's Eat-aria.
Archie: Finally!

37: How much wood could a woodchuck chuck if a woodchuck could chuck wood?

Michael: Was that supposed to be another one of your Polish jokes Arch?
Archie: Only a Meathead knows for sure.

Instead of my usual TTFN sign off, I will let Edith and Archie sign-out the way they opened the show.

...Those were the days...
