Mike is upset that all of Gloria's time is spent taking care of Joey while his needs are being ignored. Gloria becomes angry and tells him that at 5 o'clock, his job ends, but that she doesn't get to punch out.

They have a big argument, as Mike runs next door to play cards with Archie. Edith comes over to talk to Gloria and lets to know that some friction between new parents is normal with all the changes that come about, especially in the bedroom. Archie is not quite as successful in talking to Mike, but then Gloria comes over and the two share a passionate kiss.
