The kids go away on vacation leaving Archie and Edith alone for the first time in years. Edith tries to get an uninterested Archie to do something fun but fails at every turn until she suggests a game of cards. The game turns into an argument, Archie hurts her feelings and storms out of the house. Later, he comes back in a better mood and the two have a deep conversation about what they wanted to do with their lives before they got married. Archie wanted to be a ball player and Edith wanted to be a famous ballroom dancer. Finally, he apologizes - sort of - for the things he said earlier. They share a passionate kiss just as Mike and Gloria return home. Written by
