Plot summaryEdit

Archie balks at the notion of donating blood at the local Red Cross. When Mike (Rob Reiner) accuses him of being chicken, Archie protests that he doesn't want to give up a precious pint of his own "pure" blood unless he can be certain that the recipient will not be a member of a minority group. Archie's ethnocentric monologues in this episode are so incredibly convoluted that one almost grudgingly admires his stubborn stupidity.
