In an interview with Katie Couric, Lear, 92, says he still chokes up when watching the All in the Family scene in which Edith (Jean Stapleton) discusses her friend Beverly — whom Lear describes as "a transsexual, a man who'd become a woman" — getting murdered.

Premise: The popular 'All in the Family' spin-off about a couple movin' on up from the Bunkers' modest Queens neighborhood to Manhattan's ritzy East Side. Paterfamilias George Jefferson was a bigoted, buffoonish mirror image of Archie Bunker, but had the money (from his dry-cleaning business) to back up his bluster. A ratings winner, 'The Jeffersons' spawned a spin-off, 1981's 'Checking In,' featuring sassy maid Florence (Marla Gibbs). It lasted just four weeks, and Florence returned to her old job.
