Archie is outraged when Mike brings it upon himself to invite a friend to stay the night. Worse is that the friend is Paul, who Archie remembers as a nice, clean-cut kid with dreams of being an engineer, but is now an aimless hippie with long hair. Archie gets on his moral high-horse when he finds out that Paul has brought along his girlfriend Robin and plans to sleep with her on the Bunker's couch even though they aren't married. When Paul's friend Jeff shows up to pick him up, Jeff is not happy that Paul has brought Robin along because his father would have the same hang up about their unmarried status as Archie. Jeff breaks the deal and leaves, leaving Paul and Robin to sleep on the Bunker's couch as planned. Written by
