It is finally time for Mike and Gloria to have a break from little Joey for the evening and they hire a babysitter named Sharyl to watch him. Archie checks in but is none too thrilled by her choice of studies - Aboriginal sexuality - nor her hippie boyfriend whom she takes to smooching with on the couch. Archie throws them both out and takes little Joey over to his house just as the guys are converging for their poker night. He becomes irritated by the chatter and the noise from his buddies until they come together to try and help little Joey get to sleep. Written by Jerry Roberts <>

Gloria: You just don't want to be alone with the baby 'cause you're afraid you might have to change him.
Archie: You think I never changed you, little girl?
Gloria: If I had waited for you to do that, I would've worn the same diaper since I was two. Ma told me that.
Archie: Don't believe your mother, you believe me. Many is the time I changed you, little girl, and it wasn't always wee-wee. Sometimes it was this here.
[Holds up two fingers]
Gloria: Well I never promised you a rose garden.

Archie babysits for Joey
6 March 2018 | by Jimmy_the_Gent4See all my reviews

Mike and Gloria have a night out and Archie stays with the baby even though he is having a poker game.

This is an amusing episode, better than most of the latter season 6 ones. Archie has some funny moments arguing with an 18 year old student that was originally going to be the sitter. There are some good guests stars as poker players including Jack Somack (he played Tony Vicino in the " Archie Sees A Mugging" episode) and Joe Mantell ( an Oscar nominee for the 1955 classic film "Marty")
