Archie Bunker's Eulogy - Stretch Cunningham - All in the Family

Archie Bunker's Eulogy - Stretch Cunningham - All in the Family



How to write a eulogy: http://americanspeechwriter.com

Archie Bunker's friend, Stretch Cunningham, died unexpectedly, and he is asked to give a eulogy. Feeling he is over his head, he enlists the Meathead to help him write the eulogy. Mike himself is an atheist, but Archie convinces him to include mentions of Jesus Christ, trying to be sensitive towards Stretch's faith. What Archie does not know is that Stretch was Jewish.

When Archie approaches the podium, he realizes his written eulogy is inappropriate and does his best to adjust. What he really came to say comes through, and that is that Stretch was a good friend and that he'll miss him. Edith is deeply touched, knowing that beneath Archie's awkwardness, he did the best he could.
