Edith brings an old man by the house who wants to call his daughter to come pick him up. It seems that he has escaped from the old folks home because he was tired of the drab existence there. Archie is befuddled by the man and wants him to make his call and leave. The daughter won't talk to the old man so he makes arrangements with his girlfriend to come and pick him up. The presence of the man makes Archie begin to feel his age and fear that his declining years are right around the corner. The man leaves Archie with simple advice: Get old, but don't grow old.
