Archie and his old friend, Joe Tucker, reunite after eighteen years. The two catch up on old times, but the current news for Joe is not all that good. He's unemployed and by now desperate for any kind of work. He meets with Archie's boss, Mr. Pendergast, telling him he's willing to take any job offer available. Archie, fearing for his own job, tries to sandbag his friend, but all turns out well.


Archie tries to help out his unemployed friend, Joe Tucker (Vic Tayback), who used to hold Archie's job at the loading dock. Things get dicey when it looks as though Joe is going to get his old job back -- and where does that leave Archie?
