About Bertha

When Archie's deadbeat cousin Oscar dies in the bathroom after having lived with the Bunkers for several weeks, cousin Bertha comes from Ozone Park in Queens to attend Oscar's wake in the Bunker home. She arrives at the wake, sobbing at the loss of Oscar. Archie, who hasn't seen Bertha in eleven years, and doesn't recognize her when she goes to hug him, asks "Who the hell are you!?" as she then introduces herself as she asks about the passing of the recently departed cousin Oscar, "Did he suffer?"
