As Mike and Gloria prepare for their move out of the Bunker house, Gloria has some good news as she shares with her parents that she is going to have a baby. However, when she tells Mike, he is not as enthusiastic due to his feelings about bringing up a child in a world full of problems and it eventually leads to a fight between the two.
