After numerous verbal bouts, Michael and Archie decide to bond by going fishing. However, for no apparent reason, Gloria feels depressed, complaining that "nothing ever changes around here." It is later determined that she may be falling out of love with Michael. After Edith recalls a similar experience with Archie, Gloria's spirits are lifted. Concerned about Gloria, Mike cancels his fishing trip with Archie


When Gloria is depressed, everyone in the family suffers. The reason for Gloria's doldrums is her belief that she has fallen out of love with husband Mike. It is up to Edith to save the day -- and to again reveal that, when the chips are down, she is anything but a mere "dingbat."
