  • A power outage and reports of looting in the city prompt Mike to write a letter to the editor about how greedy governments do the same in the name of free enterprise. At the bar, Archie vents his frustrations about how Mike always argues his point and doesn't see things his way. Two men - who have been listening in - approach Archie and suggest that he come to a meeting of the Kweens Kouncil of Krusaders (a chapter of the Klu Klux Klan), where they will come up with a more severe way of "teaching" Mike a lesson.

  • Archie and Edith hole up in the living room of Mike and Gloria while riding out the 1977 New York blackout. With no electricity and nothing to do, Archie and Mike begin to converse - which means arguing about social events. On this occasion Archie accuses the rash of break-ins and looting to the blacks, but Mike blames the government for creating a social stigma against poor people by creating an environment that tells everyone what they should own, and what they should wear all to generate free enterprise. His anger leads him to write a letter to the editor. Later, at the bar, Archie rails against his son-in-law and is overheard by two men sitting at the end of the bar. The men named Gordie and Mitch encourage Archie to join their organization The Kweens Kouncil of Krusaders, a civic organization that is dedicated to keeping crime and disorder out of the neighborhood. Archie is intrigued and decides to go to their meeting. When he gets there, he is shocked to find that their organization is a branch of the KKK and that it is targeting Mike.
