Archie is forced to show up at the hospital for the birth of his grandchild in black face, When his lodge brothers refused to give him their cold cream because he left, He and Edith are surprised to discover that Mike and Gloria haven't arrived - first they that Gloria was stuck in a phone booth at the restaurant and then they found themselves stuck in traffic. All is well, they get to the hospital, Gloria has the baby and Archie manages to borrow cold cream from a terrified elderly woman. The lodge brothers show up and tell him that they understand and that it would be heartless to throw him out of the lodge at the birth of his first grandchild, whom Mike and Gloria name Joseph Michael Stivic.

Just after the baby is born, Mike asks Gloria how she'd feel about a second. Although the punchline is terrific ("Not now Michael; I have a headache."), in truth, Mike was angry about her pregnancy at the start. Also, in the next season's "Gloria's False Alarm," he erupts when she tells him she might be pregnant again. See more
