The Stivics celebrate their second anniversary by recalling how they almost were never married. With their wedding fast approaching, Archie wants the wedding his way, and Mike's Uncle Casmir wants his wedding his way. The two do not budge, and it becomes clear Mike and Gloria's engagement is in trouble.
The Bunkers and the Stivics recall the wedding of Mike and Gloria. The pre-nuptial arrangements are complicated when stubborn Archie butts heads with Mike's equally stubborn Uncle Casmir.
It's worth noting that the "flashback" Archie is even more volatile and reactionary than the present Archie Bunker viewers have come to know and -- er -- love.
- Mike clearly has not yet moved in with the Bunkers in the time before his wedding, and even returns to his home after briefly calling the wedding off.
- Uncle Casimir Stivic was played by Michael Conrad, who later played Sgt. Phil Esterhaus on the NBC-TV crime/drama series Hill Street Blues.
- Part 1 of a two-part episode.
