Theodore Bikel guest stars as Bronx butcher Alvin Klemmer. Regular customer Edith Bunker is flattered by Klemmer's old-world graciousness, until she realizes that the butcher has fallen in love with her. Written by Phil Sharp, "Love Comes to the Butcher" first aired on February 5, 1978. Audience response to the episode was so positive that in 1979 All in the Family offered a sequel, "A Girl Like Edith," also featuring Theodore Bikel.
