Archie, Mike and Gloria plan a surprise party for Edith to celebrate her 50th birthday. But an unwelcome visitor to the Bunker's home - while Edith is home alone - has a much different surprise in mind for the Bunker matriarch.

When Edith comes bursting into the Stivic's kitchen and directly into Archie's arms, another actress in the room quickly zips up the back of Edith's dress.

After Edith clocks the would be rapist with her burnt cake and cakepan, she literally runs out of the house in a panic, and goes next door to Mike and Gloria's, leaving the front door open and the lights on. Later, Mike and Archie decide to check the house to see if the rapist is still there, and when they do, the front door is closed, and the lights are off. Edith didn't do these things, and the rapist would certainly have not made the extra effort to do this either in the injured state he was in. So, who shut the front door and turned off the lights?
