Archie has been home from work with back problems, compounded by worries that the man who is filling in for him is younger and faster. He ends up in the hospital for surgery and, while there, strikes up a friendship with the man in the next bed. Archie likes the man and even invites him over for dinner. This is mostly because a faulty partition blocks his view of the man who is not only French but is also black. Written by Jerry Roberts <>
