Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Having just had an argument, George and Louise Jefferson (Sherman Hemsley, Isabel Sanford) are hardly in the mood to be tied up back-to-back while a burglar (Philip Charles MacKenzie) ransacks their apartment. Brooding over their predicament, the feuding couple begins recalling the highlights -- and lowlights -- of their marriage. The late Zara Cully appears as Mother Jefferson in lengthy clips from earlier Jeffersons episodes, as do Carroll O'Connor and Jean Stapleton in vignettes culled from All in the Family (in which the characters of The Jeffersons were first introduced). Originally telecast as a 90-minute special, "George and Louise in a Bind" has since been divided into three separate 30-minute segments for syndication.
