      Archie: (scowling at Mike's books littering the dining room table) First, tell that to the captain of the Polish Unemployment!

    • Archie: What the problem with them two?
      Edith: Well, Archie, I don't know the whole story, but...oh, I just can't tell you. You just don't like to hear about such things.
      Archie: I like to hear about everything that's happening in this house. Now what kind of problem have they got?
      Edith: It's sexual.
      Archie: Shush! (looks nervously around the kitchen) You know I don't like to hear about that there!

  • Notes

  • Allusions

    • Archie suggests that Mike and Gloria should write their problem to "Dear Abby" (and mispronounces "Abby"). The allusion is to the famous "Dear Abby" advice column which began in 1956 by Pauline Esther Friedman Phillips, and is carried on to this day by Pauline's daughter.
