Maude is depressed on her birthday, and is surprised by the party Walter throws for her. All Maude wants is for Walter to stay with her instead of going to talk with the men. Walter forgets his promise and Maude leaves her own party.


Walter organizes a surprise birthday party for Maude, who is not handling aging well. Maude wants her birthday to go according to her plans, so she tells Walter to stay by her side and not to "go off with the men" to the other side of the room. When he strays from his promise, Maude leaves the party and locks herself in their bedroom. While Maude is sulking, Arthur yells, "FIRE!" which earns him a drenching from her.
