Episode cast overview:
Jeannie Linero ...
The Waitress (as Jeanie Linero)


Archie is excited about a trip that he is planning with Edith to go to Disney World, but something goes wrong when Edith begins to have mood swings and hot and cold flashes. One moment she is sweet and lovable, the next she is angry and defensive - even telling Archie to stifle. Gloria explains that she is just going through the early stages of menopause but Edith translates it as her first step toward the old folk's home. Archie, meanwhile, is forced to do things against his own nature when he has to nurture and be understanding toward Edith even though it is driving him insane.
