About Sarafina

Sarafina, who goes into labor in the elevator at the Friedman Building while the Bunkers and Stivics were about to eat dinner at a restaurant, Pascuale's, located there, apparently has a sense of humor; when her husband Carlos introduces Archie, who's stuck in the elevator with them and two others, she jokingly asks Archie, "Are you pregnant?"
