TV Quote of the Day (‘All in the Family,’ As Archie and Sammy Davis Jr. Discuss the Races and Slavery)

Archie Bunker [played by Carroll O’Connor]: “Now, no prejudice intended, but, you know, I always check with the Bible on these here things. I think that, I mean if God had meant for us to be together, he'da put us together. But look what he done. He put you over in Africa, and put the rest of us in all the white countries.”

Sammy Davis Jr.: “Well, he must’ve told him where we were, 'cause somebody came and got us.”— All in the Family, Season 2, Episode 21, “Sammy’s Visit,” original air date Feb. 19, 1972, teleplay by Bill Dana, directed by John Rich

This is easily one of the most memorable episodes of this ground-breaking comedy.
