Edith gets a mink cape from her wealthy cousin, and Archie objects, demanding she return it. However when the cape is damaged by the cleaners, Archie does an about-face and schemes to keep the insurance check.


Archie's pride is hurt when Edith is given an expensive mink cape by her cousin Amelia. At first ordering Edith to return the gift, Archie changes his mind when he realizes that he stands to collect $300 by selling the cape. Unfortunately, there's a pesky spaghetti sauce stain that Edith accidentally put on it, which just wouldn't come out.

When Jefferson Cleaners accidentally destroys the mink, the Bunkers break the news to the DeKuypers. Archie, who still greedily seeks to collect the $300, tries to pressure Edith, who was given a reimbursement check of the said amount which she receives from George and Louise, to keep the check, until he finds out that the Jeffersons made the check out to Cousin Amelia, who arrives with Russ just in time for their visit to Queens, much to the chagrin of Archie!
