Archie comes home irritated that Stretch Cunningham took a half day claiming that he was sick even though Archie knows well that he has taken time off to be with a girl. During dinner, Edith answers a phone call from one of Archie's co-workers informing her that Stretch Cunningham died at the doctor's office. While trying to get his head together, Archie gets a visit from Stretch's brother who asks Archie to give his eulogy. He reluctantly agrees and asks Mike to write something for him, but it turns out to a depressing piece of poetry. Archie writes something himself, but a shock is in store when he gets to the funeral and finds out that Stretch (whose real name is Jerome) was actually Jewish.

Did You Know?
Stretch was always one of the uppest guys you ever met, see. Always laughing, telling jokes himself. Many a Jewish joke he told. He told the one about the priest said to the rabbi... he told about the priest said to the rabbi, "How come you never eat no ham?" The rabbi said, "It's against my religion. How come you never go out with a girl?" And the priest said, "it's against my religion." And the rabbi said, "You ought to try it. It's better than ham."
