Archie discovers too late that Edith forgot to mail the insurance check and today is the last day of the grace period. He leaves her birthday dinner to get to the insurance office to put it under the door, but on the way up the elevator stops, leaving him trapped with a snooty black man, a dingy secretary, a Puerto Rican janitor and his pregnant wife. The secretary goes into hysterics, the wife goes into labor, the black man won't shut up about his wealth, the janitor has to defend himself against stereotypical remarks and Archie offends everyone with his opinions. He makes a myriad of jokes at the expense of the janitor but when the baby is actually born the event softens his heart. Meanwhile, Edith, back at the restaurant takes a liking to the wine and gets bombed out of her mind.
