Archie falls, yet again, for one of Pinky Peterson's practical jokes. Meanwhile, at home, Edith is greeted by Beverly LaSalle, the transvestite that Archie saved a year earlier in his cab. Archie comes home and Beverly invites he and Edith out to dinner, but Archie refuses until he sees a perfect plan to get back at Pinky for all the years that he put one over on him. He decides to invite Pinky but not tell him that Beverly is a man. Edith and Beverly want no part of this but Archie insists. When Pinky comes over and Archie and Edith are upstairs changing, Pinky lets Beverly know that he knows that he is a man. At the restaurant, the plot is unfurled almost immediately and it looks like Archie has egg on his face until Pinky's fiancé shows up and becomes infuriated. She breaks off the wedding when she finds out that Beverly is a man. Written by Jerry Roberts <>

Beverly LaSalle returns
18 March 2018 | by Jimmy_the_Gent4See all my reviews

Archie is tired of being the butt of Pinky Peterson's practical jokes so he sets him up on a date with Beverly LaSalle, the female impersonator whose life Archie once saved.

The Beverly LaSalle character previously appeared in Season six's funniest episode "Archie The Hero" and this is an OK episode though not as good as the prior one. Eugene Roche debuts as the obnoxious Pinky Peterson, though his jokes are pretty lame (they couldn't come up with any better than joy buzzers and kick me signs?). This makes Archie into a pathetic victim rather than tough fighter from years ago. Still though this episode gets silly it still has more laughs than most of the later seasons.
