Archie comes home from work cranky because of the strict diet Edith has kept him following, thanks to the orders of his doctor. Archie bemoans the fact that he can hardly work off of a tuna sandwich, orange, and carrot sticks all day, and ties to pilfer a beer from the fridge. Edith deftly keeps him from the beer, and holds it out of his reach until she gets upstairs and flushes it. When Meathead comes over later, his efforts to encourage Archie to exercise are met with disgust, and Archie finally tells Edith that he's going to flee to every restaurant and pizza joint in the city to make up for his starvation diet. When Archie gets to Kelsey's, he orders a platter of fattening food and douses it with ketchup. Moments later, Mr. Quigley jogs in and brags to Archie that he's just jogged three miles. He then proceeds to show Archie a wallet of family photos, all of relations who died prematurely due to obesity. Archie figures out that Quigley has been sent to him by Edith and gets angry. However, when he gets home Edith makes a deal with him that she'll show him some leniency with the meals if he'll stay home to eat.
