Mike finds out that Archie baptized Joey without his consent, prompting another argument between the agnostic and so-called Christian. The argument begins to simmer ... until the Bunkers' furnace breaks down.


The furnace at the Bunker house goes kaput, so Archie and Edith are forced to spend a few days staying with Mike and Gloria to keep warm. Added to the fact that Mike and Archie don't get along is the still boiling issue of Archie having Joey baptized without his parent's consent. Archie makes a fool of himself with his annoying habits and nearly drives Mike right out of his own house. Things go from bad to worse until the power goes out and everyone sits in the dark by candlelight and all is calm again.
