Season nine finds Mike and Gloria officially moved out, leaving Archie and Edith "on their own" for the first time in a long while. Of course, that doesn't last long when Edith's cousin Floyd abandons his nine-year-old daughter Stephanie (Danielle Brisebois) on their doorstep. But, as the Bunkers have grown accustomed to doing, they make the best -- and funniest -- out of a terrible situation and take her in. Meanwhile, it turns out the Stivics are on the rocks in California when Edith and Archie decide to pay a cross-country visit for Christmas. For this final season, Norman Lear hosted an endearing 90-minute 200th episode celebration that allowed fans of the show to look back and relive the greatest moments of the groundbreaking series.
