Archie flies into a panic when his good-for-nothing cousin Oscar stays the night and then dies in his guest room. The Bunkers put together a wake at which Archie tries to figure out how to put Oscar away without having to spend too much money. He gets a rock bottom statement from the funeral director but still thinks it's too high. Then Mike does some research and discovers that since Oscar is not technically Archie immediate family then all he has to do is call the coroner, who will collect the body and bury him in a pauper's grave at no charge. Archie jumps at the chance especially when he gets the news that the grave diggers are about to go on strike. Written by
