Episode Recap

An insurance representative comes into Archie's Place and informs Archie that a routine X-ray showed a spot on his liver. The insurance rep tries to cheer Archie up by telling him that at least he'll have time to settle his affairs before the end. Archie goes home, and not wanting to tell Edith, surprises her with a box of chocolates. Edith can't figure out why he's being so pleasant, nor why he suddenly wants to take her out to dinner, but while he's upstairs changing into his suit, Barney stops by. Barney was there when Archie was given the news about the spot on his liver, and he relays the news to Edith. Edith doesn't let on to Archie that she knows what's going on his mind, but is extra-sensitive to him that night. Nothing she says, however, cheers him up. The next day, Archie comes home early for lunch and surprises Edith with flowers. He tells her that he was worried about his buddy Hank's liver, and here, the doctor told "Hank" that the spot was nothing more than a bit of gas passing over the X-ray.
