Episode cast overview:


An explosive argument is ignited between Mike and Gloria after a Scrabble game in which Mike makes the indication that he is better at the game because he is smarter. Gloria accuses him of thinking she is inferior and goes so far as to accuse him of ruining her life by trapping her in a marriage with a kid. Mike storms out of the house and runs next door to ask if he can stay there for the night. The sleeping arrangements are tricky since Teresa is now using the extra room, leading Mike to have to sleep in the same room as Archie where his picky habits drive Archie crazy. Eventually, Mike goes back home and he and Gloria make up. Written by Jerry Roberts <armchair-cinema@hotmail.com>
