Attending night classes to earn his high school diploma and maybe get a dispatcher's job at work, Archie swears Edith to secrecy lest Mike and Gloria discover he never finished school. Overwhelmed by his studies, he tries to cheat, but Edith ruins his crib notes by pasting them to a board for him to study. He passes anyway, but loses the job to the boss's nephew.
For reasons unknown, Archie is sneaking out of the house every night. Their curiosity aroused, Mike and Gloria decide to follow Archie and find out what he is up to. The solution to the mystery is inherent in the title of this episode.
