Injured Man (as Joseph George)


Gloria is sick with the flu, and soon Archie may be too. When Edith makes a stew with mushrooms, it isn't until Archie has some that Mike intervenes and tells him about a recall of Poconos Mushrooms that have been reported to have boccelism. The family panics and takes Archie to the doctor where he has to wait in the waiting room and then endures a painful shot. When he gets home, he gets the idea for a lawsuit only to have Edith break the news that he didn't eat Poconos but a brand with a similar label. Archie doesn't have boccelism, but does acquire Gloria's flu. Written by Jerry Roberts <>
