Plot summaryEdit

Accidentally denting the fender of a parked car with a can of peaches, Edith leaves a note on the car's windshield. A furious Archie reprimands Edith for her unrepentant act of honesty, but that's hardly the end of the story -- which includes such elements as insurance fraud and an "unfrocked" priest.
