Archie and Edith take a trip uptown to attend the wedding of Carol, the daughter of Edith's cousin Maude. Archie decides to stay at the hotel rather than face either the bachelor party or the bridal shower. The focus shifts to the Finley household where Carol and David are having problems getting together on what their marriage will include. David comes home from the bachelor party after the cops raid the hotel and gets into an argument with Carol. It seems that he wants kids and has already purchased a house, but Carol doesn't want any of those things. Fueled with anger and alcohol, David begins to suspect that Carol's family hates him because he is Jewish. After a few choice words they decide to call the wedding off. Archie comes back to Maude's house and admits that he couldn't sleep because of a wild party at which he called the cops. Written by
