Woodhouse tells Archer about his WWI escapades. His former superior and BFF Reggie, suggested a tontine (French AND illegal, even in a Napoleonic Code state.) Each man contributed £50 and, after years of compound interest, the literal "last man standing" would collect the lot. The 100+ year old Woodhouse was 1 of 3 remaining old soldiers still alive and eligible to receive nearly £1,000,000. Even if that is not real money, Archer would still kill his old valet for such a prize! Meanwhile, at ISIS HQ, Pam administers her own version of a tontine, where she tries to help her odds by encouraging Cheryl/Carol to slurp glue. When wee Seamus becomes the living embodiment of "bouncing baby boy," only Archer rushes in to save Woodhouse, whether he needed it or not! Did Woodhouse, figuratively, knock some sense in Archer's head as Woodhouse toasted his comrades? And how much alcohol can wee Seamus drink, literally, before someone sees he has a problem?

Did You Know?
Woodhouse mentions a £12,000 tontine that was started during (presumably towards the end of) World War I, and which had matured to around $1,000,000 at an annual interest rate of 10% with compound capitalization. That would take around 42 years, which puts "present day" around 1959-1960. See more

What the hell is wrong with him?
He might have a tiny hangover.
