Due to an accident in a grocery store parking lot, a can of cling peaches in heavy syrup from Edith's shopping basket slightly damages someone's car.

Plot summary[]

Accidentally denting the fender of a parked car with a can of peaches, Edith leaves a note on the car's windshield. A furious Archie reprimands Edith for her unrepentant act of honesty, but that's hardly the end of the story -- which includes such elements as insurance fraud and an "unfrocked" priest.

Note: Barnard Hughes is cast as Father John Majeski.
