Archie's insistence upon purchasing a gun to protect his household backfires when a couple of burglars named Coke and Horace break into the Bunker household. Keeping Archie at bay with his own gun, the two thieves reveal a lot about themselves -- and, in the course of the evening, genially encourage the disingenuous Edith to compose an impromptu ditty about her life.
The two cat burglars, "Horace" and "Coke", are played by Tony award-winning actor Cleavon Little and relative Hollywood newcomer Demond Wilson, who on the strength of this performance was soon cast as Lamont Sanford in the Norman Lear-produced hit NBC-TV sitcom Sanford and Son.
