As Archie gets ready for a date, mom is sewing, and he phones Jughead to make arrangements. Since he can’t just go out with two girls, Betty and Veronica, he needs Jughead to round things out.
Dad looks over the headlines in the newspaper, and gets ready for a bath. Just as he gets dipped into the water, the phone rings. I think that must be one of those laws of the universe. While dad’s back was turned, Archie takes over the tub. That universal law kicks in again and Veronica calls for Archie. Archie still manages to take over the tub again, but he’s delayed when he has to run water to replace the now ice cold tub.
Will dad get his chance now that Archie is out of the tub? The trouble is that the hot water has run out, and the pipe started rattling. Dad insists on fixing the problem himself, but first he needs to make a trip to the basement to turn off the water main. Dad relays shouted instructions through the house, but his communication lines have been cut when Betty calls on the phone, and mom goes to answer it. Meanwhile dad’s despair is growing when he seems to have been forgotten in the basement. The shouting is finally done, but dad finds Archie locked in the bathroom with a broken lock on the door.
To manage the escape, dad saws out a chunk off the bathroom door. Who knows why, but Archie gets his head stuck in the hole in the door. Will the ordeal be over once Archie is set free? Don’t count on it. Despite his best efforts, dad has his hot water, and Archie is off on his date. Dad keeps up his song of the show, I’m Forever Blowing Bubbles, but since Archie used all the soap, it makes me wonder what he’s blowing those bubbles with. Well, maybe I don’t want to know afterall.
In epilog, and after dad has given up on his bath, Archie comes home from his party with soap. Soap as a prize at a high school party? I guess it could happen.
