  • In part two of a two part episode, Archie has stopped his use of pills, but is still very depressed and retreats to his bedroom. Edith, Mike and Gloria turn to Harry and ask him to become Archie's business partner in order to save Archie's Place.moreless

    7.0
    Part two is much more light hearted than part one, but it works nonetheless. As part one relied on drama and emotion to make it work, this episode's well written script and abundant laughs make this episode enjoyable. The highlight is how Mike, Edith and Gloria manage to get Archie out of bed. What comes a very close second is Edith singing to Archie in the hospital. The reaction of Archie's hospital roommate is very clever. Part two may not be as memorable as part one, but it still manages to deliver enough laughs to make it worth your time.moreless
