Archie comes home with gifts for Edith and Gloria, making Mike wonder where he got the extra money. Edith becomes furious when she pieces together that Archie has started gambling on horses again even though he promised 20 years ago that he would never gamble again. During a particularly angry argument, Edith slaps Archie causing him to leave. Down at Kelsey's bar, Barney Hefner convinces Archie that the only way to deal with her is either through the silent treatment or by getting tough. He takes up the latter and storms home only to find that it doesn't work. Edith reads and apology letter that Archie thinks is an apology to him, but actually it is a letter that he wrote to her 20 years ago promising never to gamble again. Reluctantly, he updates the letter by resigning it. Written by
