This is the account of Lear and his family.
In the beginning, TILL DEATH US DO PART, a British sitcom, unknowingly begot ALL IN THE FAMILY. And it was good. From Archie and Edith did spring a child GLORIA, who became wife to Michael Stivic. And from this family, great tidings of laughter did come. From the tribe of Edith did come MAUDE, who displeased Archie greatly. And from MAUDE did come Florida Evans who traveled to the land of Chicago to find GOOD TIMES. And from the tribe neighboring the Bunkers, THE JEFFERSONS did mark and chide Archie, until Queens they did leave for a deluxe apartment in the sky. THE JEFFERSONS begot CHECKING IN with their servant Florence. And the Lord did smote them, raining low ratings upon the house of CBS. And Lo, ARCHIE BUNKER'S PLACE was a continuation, and lo, 704 HAUSER was a abomination, the purpose was served and the lineage maintained. In Lear's name, Amen.
