Storyline

Still unemployed, Archie checks into the hospital for gall bladder surgery, a situation that proves to be anything but routine. Not only does he find Edith reading a Playgirl in the waiting room, he has to deal with a smart-alack Puerto Rican nurse and then a burly West Indian surgical assistant who preps him for surgery by giving him a shave . . . but not on his chin.
