Storyline

A power outage and reports of looting in the city prompt Mike to write a letter to the editor about how greedy governments do the same in the name of free enterprise. At the bar, Archie vents his frustrations about how Mike always argues his point and doesn't see things his way. Two men - who have been listening in - approach Archie and suggest that he come to a meeting of the Kweens Kouncil of Krusaders (a chapter of the Klu Klux Klan), where they will come up with a more severe way of "teaching" Mike a lesson.

Quotes

Mitch Turner: Would Bunker go along with us in burning a cross on Stivic's lawn?
Gordie Lloyd: No, I don't think he'd do that.
Mitch Turner: Why not?
Gordie Lloyd: Because Stivic lives right next door to him. If Stivic lived up in the Bronx, I bet he'd do it.

Archie makes some new friends
21 April 2018 | by Jimmy_the_Gent4See all my reviews

Archie is complaining about lack of law and order while in his bar and two new guys ask him to join their organization.

The organization turns out to be a chapter of the Ku Klux Klan, called Kweens Kouncil Of Krusaders here. You would think this would be another heavy dramatic and depressing episode but surprisingly this is one of the funnier ones of Season 8. It starts with a blackout (which actually happened in July 1977 in NYC) and Archie and Mike have some funny arguments about looting. We meet the KKK guys played by Roger Bowen (he was Henry Blake in the movie version of "MASH", as well as the stuffy boss in the sitcom "Arnie") and Dennis Patrick (he was the shady salesman in an earlier episode "Archie's Contract" and appeared opposite Peter Boyle in film "Joe" ).
