Maude believes Walter is going through a midlife crisis after Walter takes up smoking a pipe and wearing platform shoes. Vivian runs to Maude's crying over an argument she had with Arthur about her dog. What causes the most drama, however, is a kiss Walter shares with Vivian, angering Maude and Arthur.


Maude becomes concerned when Walter begins smoking a pipe and wearing high heeled shoes. She suggests that perhaps he's going through male menopause. However, what really concerns both her and Arthur is when they catch Vivian and Walter sharing a kiss. This obviously leads to yet more marital strife between the Findlays and the Harmons.
