Dad gets bath water ran, but when the phone rings, he has to answer it. By the time dad takes down Betty’s quick message, Archie has taken control of the bathroom. Hey, it shouldn’t take too long, should it?
Jughead is helping wash Archie’s back. When Veronica phones for Archie, is this dad’s big chance to lure Archie out of the tub? All it does is make dad’s wait longer, and Archie has to run more hot water. Poor old dad, his problems are compounded when the hot water is out, and suddenly there’s a knocking sound in the pipes. Now his bath will have to wait until after he can fix the plumbing. Hmm… this sounds very familiar. Dad is in the basement, turning knobs on pipes. I’m no expert, but knocking water pipes are typically caused because of a vent problem. It’s actually a job that should take him to the roof.
While mom helps out with the commercial, dad is stranded in the basement. Dad is set free, but now Archie is locked in the bathroom. What else can possibly go wrong? After a few moments of chaos, dad finally regains control. As dad relaxes in his tub, he discovers one last tragedy. No soap.
In the end, dad has given up on his bath Later, when Archie comes home he’s a little upset over his door prize at the big dance. All he won was a crummy bottle of bubble bath.
