Episode Recap

Archie, Edith and Stephanie arrive in the Los Angeles airport and meet up with Gloria for Christmas. They travel back to Gloria's apartment in Santa Barbara and meet up with the Meathead, who has supposedly hurt his back. The Bunkers are charmed with California's culture: joint-smoking neighbors, lemon trees, and warm weather at Christmas. What they don't realize, however, is that Michael and Gloria are separated and that Michael is now living in his own place. At nighttime, however, when Gloria and Mike go to their bedroom, Mike takes the bed and Gloria is forced to sleep in a chair. This later leads to an argument, which culminates in Mike telling Gloria that she's fat, and Gloria is reduced to loud sobs in the bathroom. Edith finds her there, and in trying to console her, discovers that Mike and Gloria are separated and headed for divorce.
