Four years into the Stivic marriage, Mike and Gloria still have no children. That's just fine by Mike, and his wishes cause yet another argument between him and Gloria.


Gloria has always been aware that Mike is against overpopulation. Even so, she is shocked when Mike states, flat out, that he doesn't want any children. The ensuing argument spreads throughout the Bunker household, affecting not only Archie and Edith, but next-door neighbor Irene Lorenzo as well.
