Archie's family and friends throw a surprise party for his 50th birthday, but Archie insists that he's only 49, and is upset to find out he's older than he thinks.


The family is planning a 50th birthday party for Archie. The only one unwilling to enter into the festivities is Archie himself, who feels that he is old and useless. Then he takes a peek at his birth certificate -- and is he in for a surprise. The episode's level of humor is heightened by the attitude contrast between Archie and the octogenarian couple Quigley and Jo Nelson.
