Archie's scheming mind is once again at work, this time when Edith can not seem to find her heirloom necklace. Archie—with the burning desire to buy a new color television set—wants to quickly give up on the search, so he can report it stolen and collect on the insurance. But before Archie can finalize the claim, an insurance agent needs to ask a few questions.


Edith is in a panic when she loses a valuable locket. Archie, however, is less concerned about the locket than about its monetary value. Hoping to purchase a new color TV set, Archie tries to persuade Edith to claim that the locket was stolen so he can collect a huge insurance settlement.
