  • How it should've ended

    It was a good episode, but I hate that the crooks got away.



    What should've happened is that just as the crooks are about to leave with the loot, the police show up. The police look confused seeing everyone in with their pants down. Everyone is relieved to the police. The police say that these 2 escaped from jail and they've been looking for them, ever since. They've got them on escaping jail, armed robbery and now possibly sexual offense. The guys notice that they still have their pants down and pull them up. Michael would ask how the police knew the crooks were here and the police say that 2 guys tipped them off. Archie says he'd like to meet them, he'll even give them drinks on the house. The 2 guys who tipped off the police come in and it's the same 2 guys that Archie kicked out earlier. Archie can't believe it. The police tell the crooks that they're getting more put on their sentence for something else and the crooks ask,"For what?" and an officer says,"For ruining our superbowl Sunday." One police officer tells the 2 guys that they'll be receiving a $5,000 reward for finding those 2 crooks. Archie hears that,(knowing that's more than he made the entire day) butts in and says, "Uh, excuse me, officer but I think I should get some of dat reward or maybe most of it, you know, cause I held off them 2 crooks after I sent those guys to go get you." The officer says, "Oh really, Mr. Bunker? When we came in, you had your hands up and your pants DOWN. Not really holding them up. And you didn't send these 2 gentlemen out to get us, you KICKED them out. I don't see any credit going to you." The 2 guys smile sarcastically and blow raspberries at Archie and leave as the police take the 2 crooks out. The 2 heroes say that this turned out to be the best day of their lives. The taller crook says, "I told you we should've done it sooner. Now my wife's gonna kill me when she finds out that all l I got was thrown in jail, again," and the shorter crook says,"You wanna shut up. You've got the right to remain silent." Archie looks miserable and Michael tells him to be happy, he got his $1,200(which he was so excited about) back, but Archie says that's just chicken feed and says he could've had $5,000.moreless
