VIDEO: Which All in the Family Scene Still Makes Norman Lear Cry?

TV writer-producer Norman Lear is a true pioneer — not only in the sense that he created such legendary sitcoms as All in the FamilyMaude and The Jeffersons, but also because he tackled topics such as menopause, impotence and even transgender issues when they were still taboo.

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.
