At the beach, she falls in love with a handsome young lifeguardsman. Markham unaware of this, asks Phyllis to marry him and she refuses. She marries the lifeguard and this angers her father, hut his love for his daughter overcomes his desire to punish them, and he writes telling her to come home with her husband. Things go well for a lime, but Bob, too prosperous, starts upon the downward track. He leaves his wife much alone, to the indignation of her father and of Markham. Soon, he becomes enamoured of the notorious Madame Zigoletti, a contortionist. She leads him on and soon has him almost completely in her power. Markham sees him with her and expostulates, but is told to mind his own business. In the solitude of his room, Markham thinks the matter out and acts upon his decision. Knowing that Webster has put detectives on Bob's track, he goes to the Madame and forces himself upon her. In a talk with her he soon finds out that it is the money she wants and not the man. He offers her a check to give up Bob, so that he may return to his sorrowing wife. She consents, but they are interrupted by Bob, who arrives in an auto coat and cap and who tries to undo the arrangement made. He soon sees that this woman has made a cat's paw of him, and it brings him to his senses. Markham hears the detectives coming, and he forces Bob into an inner room, and when they enter they are surprised to find the man of irreproachable character in the room instead of their quarry. He tells them they have made a mistake and quietly taking Bob's coat and hat, goes. Bob returns to his wife, quite cared. He accepts the other man's sacrifice; and Mr. Webster, surprised and shocked at what he thinks is the moral depravity of his partner, forces him to resign and with a wry smile and the feeling of satisfaction that he has done signal service to the woman he loves, poor Markham drops out of sight and fights his battle out alone.... see A Friend of the Family on IMDb|

|From one of television's pioneering creators, Norman Lear comes one of the most beloved families in television history, the Bunkers, starring Carroll O'Connor as Archie, Jean Stapleton as Edith, Rob Reiner as Mike "Meathead" Stivic and Sally Struthers as Gloria. Television was changed forever the night of January 12, 1971, when the premiere episode of "All in the Family" debuted. This three disc set contains the first complete season. The show's central character, Archie Bunker, is a working-class family man who holds bigoted, conservative views of the world. His viewpoints clash with nearly everyone he comes into contact with, especially his liberal son-in-law Mike Stivic (or, as Archie delights in calling him, "Meathead"). The two disagree about nearly everything: politics, minorities, sex, religion, economics, war, gun control, crime, free speech, women's rights, morality, philosophy and (so it seems) life in general. Archie's daughter, Gloria, often (but not always) sides with Mike, while his saintly wife, Edith, is the rock that holds the family together. Edith is as friendly, reserved, considerate and open-minded as Archie is bigoted, loud, rude and closed-minded; however, the love and faithfulness between them is undeniable. During the course of its remarkable eight-year run, All in the Family was nominated for an amazing 48 Emmy Awards, taking home 20 trophies with multiple wins for all of the lead characters as well as three wins for Outstanding Comedy Series. Numerous spin-off series resulted from All in the Family including the very successful "Maude" and "The Jeffersons."|
