About "Bob and Jack" and the Refrigerator[]

Archie, Edith, and Mike all had different accounts of what transpired when Archie called on Bob, an appliance repairmen to fix the Bunkers' refrigerator. According to Archie, Jack, who was a Black assistant to Bob, the repairman, appeared as a militant, knife-wielding black gang-banger and his boss Bob as a Mafioso type, while Mike insisted that the two workers were a stereotypical musical-comedy and an Amos 'N' Andy-style shuffler, with Jack appearing as a cross between Stepin' Fetchit and Rochester Anderson to Bob's Jack Benny straight man depiction. It was Edith who honestly revealed the true personas of Bob and Jack.
