Meet Corliss Archer: The Vase That Came for Dinner is only slightly amusing
15 September 2006 | by (Baton Rouge, La.) – See all my reviews

Mrs. Archer buys a vase that her husband is not too crazy about but he tolerates it. Next door neighbor teen Dexter suggests to Mr. Archer to use a plant to make vase less noticeable. Mr. Archer breaks vase. Dexter uses glue to hold vase together. He accidentally pours glue on duck Mr. Archer is cooking for dinner. After accidentally breaking vase again, Mr. Archer buys another one which we later find out has several copies available. During dinner, everyone is enjoying their duck except Mr. Archer whose food is sticking on his hands and in his mouth! Meanwhile, Dexter's mother keeps getting different copies of the same statue from first her husband, then Corliss, then Mrs. Archer, and then Dexter. She puts one on a table and hides the other ones in the closet. Husband breaks the table one without wife noticing and goes to son Dexter to glue it together. Wife comes and discovers the broken vase and goes to her closet to replace it. Because father had been forgetting things lately, Dexter thinks he's crazy after finding vase fixed. He then thinks everyone else is such when after confessing buying the vase for his mom, his father, Mrs. Archer, and Corliss say the same thing! It all clears up after Dexter opens closet and accidentally removes shelf...This is a silly and amusing episode, at least during the duck dinner. It gets a little bland and boring by the end. So it may be interesting to those who like '50s sitcoms. Otherwise avoid.
