Gloria is traumatized when she is attacked and nearly raped while walking home from work. At first, the family insists that Gloria press charges against her assailant. But Archie and Mike soon change their minds when a no-nonsense police detective named Vogel (Charles Durning) tells Gloria what she will be up against in court. This time around, it is Edith who proves to be the most level-headed member of the household -- but will she be able to persuade Gloria to put her reputation on the line by testifying against the would-be rapist? There are no easy, pat solutions in this episode, which was written by Austin and Irma Kalish and Don Nicholl. "Gloria the Victim" originally aired on March 17, 1973.
