Archie predicts disaster when Mike and Lionel participate in an anti-Pentagon demonstration at the U.N. building. It turns out that Archie is right -- but disaster befalls him, when, showing up at the demonstration to take Mike, who comes home frazzled but unharmed, and Lionel home, he ends up in the slammer himself, surrounded by commies, hippies, yippies, who he usually calls "commie pinkos", and drop-outs!
Allan Melvin, who would later be cast in the recurring role of Barney Hefner on the show, appears as Desk Sergeant Pulaski, and it's too bad that Archie doesn't know the good sergeant's last name before he shoots off his mouth in the final scene as Mike secures his release, because the police captain is Polish like he, but Archie doesn't know that, as in referring to Mike as a "Polack", offends the captain, leaving him to stay in jail a little while longer!
