    It is Edith birthday.Mike and Gloria plans to take Edith to dinner to an italian resterunt.Unfortunelly Archie has to head to the insurance place to pay.Which messes up the birthday plan.Archie ends up getting stuck in the elevator.While missing out the birthday.Dealing with the other people that he doesn't liked that much.With no help since the janitor is stuck with them as well.Not only that the janitor wife was having an baby while being stuck in the elevator.Which those stuck on the elevator call it an miricle.Even though Archie doesn't think so.



    Yeah this episode was funny.Altough I find it disappointing when Archie missed out part of Edith's birthday while being stucked.moreless
