Rob revealed, “That [episode] was a very emotional time for all of us. We’d been together for eight years…and you spend more time with your TV family than with your real family. And so you get very, very close to them and it’s very emotional.”

He continued, “The scene where we say goodbye to each other, there was no acting. There was just no acting. You didn’t have to act. I mean, I looked at Carroll…I’ll never forget it because it was one of those times when you don’t act because all of your emotions just come out.”

At first, the show’s creator, Norman Lear, wanted that episode to be the series finale. However, CBS wanted another season of the popular show as well as some of the actors. Who was your favorite All in the Family character?
