Storyline

It is Mike and Gloria's first anniversary and, over dinner, the family reminisces about the first time that Mike came over for dinner. At that first meeting, Mike and Archie immediately established their hatred for one another starting with an argument over Vietnam, leading Mike to storm out of the house vowing never to return. After a heated argument between Archie and Gloria, Mike returns and the two attempt to have a civil conversation about baseball that escalates into another shouting match that reveals that Mike and Gloria not only plan to get married but that they plan to spend four years living under Archie's roof.
