Edith, who has been jobless since she got fired from the Sunshine Home, has gotten a job as recreational assistant at the Rego Park Center for the Mentally Ill. However, Archie has decided that he thinks that Edith should not be working.


When Edith begins looking for another job, she must overcome both Archie's objections and her own insecurities about possibly being rejected (due to her having been fired from the Sunshine Home).

Edith's drops by the bar before she goes to a job interview at a nursing home, and runs into Murray. She tells him that she's worried about the interview especially because what does she say if they ask about what happened at her last job. Murray offers her some words of encouragement.

She goes and the interview goes well and even though her last job was never brought up, she comes out and says what happened and still gets the job. Later when she goes home and tells Archie, he's upset that she won't be around.
