An explosive argument is ignited between Mike and Gloria after a Scrabble game in which Mike makes the indication that he is better at the game because he is smarter.

Mike storms out of the house and runs next door to ask if he can stay there for the night. The sleeping arrangements are tricky since Teresa is now using the extra room, leading Mike to have to sleep in the same room as Archie where his picky habits drive Archie crazy.

Mike and Gloria fight...again
10 April 2018 | by Jimmy_the_Gent4See all my reviews

Mike has an argument with Gloria and winds up in the Bunkers house.

Mike and Gloria are playing Scrabble and argue about him talking down to her. This has happened in previous episodes like Mike's Friend where they fight about Mike being a college man and Gloria only a high school grad. This is a mostly mediocre episode but there are some laughs as Archie and Mike are forced to sleep in the same bed. This is reminiscent of funnier episodes like No Smoking.
