up. the first thing you think about is your wife and your kids and your family. you think about what life would be like for them, without you. so i had surgery locally, and it came back after my follow up that i needed a second surgery. and that's when i said i need a second opinion. from the moment i walked through the doors, they greet you, they're smiling and i love the fact that they included me in the whole it makes you feel like you're part of the family. rod came in with ah, pretty advanced cancer and i remember thinking, he's just like me, he's like my twin. we're almost the same age, the same height- he's much more athletic- but almost the same life circumstances as far as having kids and raising a family, he just happens to have cancer. for rod, we combined chemotherapy, radiation and surgery in order to shrink the tumor,

oh, mike! well, i've got to be getting back. remember, all of your guests are meeting over at my house first. justin quigley and jo are already there. oh! right. who's justin quigley and jo? oh, honey, don't you remember? they're our new grandparents. we adopted them. oh, that's right! the old man that ma found walking around the street in his pajamas. yeah. well, i'm taking off. wait a minute, louise! would you mind taking that off, please, mike? i want you to look at the cake. there! what do you think? it's beautiful. frank lorenzo iced it for me. "happy 50th birthday, archie." i made up the words myself. nice. well, save me a big piece, edith. who cares if it ruins this gorgeous sylph-like figure? [laughs] ciao, amigos. i better hide this in the closet.
[edith gasping] archie! archie: wait a minute! wait a minute! where are you going, huh? daddy, we didn't expect you home so soon. yeah, it's only 10 past 5. oh, look at this. the meathead finally learned to tell time. here i am, archie! you come running at me like you was a linebacker. i'm sorry. what kind of a greeting's that? [sweetly] oh, hello, archie. all right, so i'm early. so what? oh, i told everybody to come at 5:30 so they could surprise you. and you promised you wouldn't come 'til 6 to be surprised. how can we surprise you when you're here? you broke your promise to be surprised. i didn't break my promise. it was an act of god. an act of god? that's right, you atheist, you!
oh, well, then, that wasn't god. that was an act of con edison. well, who do you think runs con edison? you're not gonna say god. well, certainly, little girl. if you knew your bible, you'd know that. god said, "let there be light," and told edison to invent the bulb. i didn't think it could be done, but you did it, arch. you just killed the living bible. but what are we gonna do about the surprise party? just forget the surprise, edith, and give the party. oh, no, archie! oh, come on, will you? i already had one surprise party today anyhow. you had a surprise party today? yeah, down at work. oh! and i knew that one was coming too, the minute i seen that jerk stretch cunningham in the locker room, trying to put a 6-inch candle on top of a twinkie.
you should have been there, edith. all them guys at lunchtime gathering around there, wishing me happy birthday, blowing out the candle there. it made you proud to be an american. it must have been hard, cutting up that twinkie into all them little slices. use your common sense. they shoved it into me in one piece. the thing that was hard was trying to make believe i was surprised. i had to say, "what? who? me?" cut it out, will you? a man's got a right to his 49th birthday, ain't he? fiftieth, archie. no, it ain't 50. i'm 49. you're 50, daddy. how can i be 50 on my 49th birthday? because it's your 50th birthday. no, it ain't! yes, it is. hey there, little girl. i know how old i am. and it ain't 50.
how are you gonna do that? it says so on your birthday cake. "says so on your birthday cake." well, i'm telling you that the cake is a liar! arch, what difference does it make whether you're 49 or 50? ah, get away from me, you. don't be trying to shove me over the hill ahead of my time. fifty's not over the hill. yeah, it's easy for you to say. you're 26. twenty-five. e could have made a mistake. we could check your birth certificate. don't waste your time. hey, ma, where's daddy's birth certificate? i think it's in the box next to all your baby shoes. okay. let's settle it. there ain't nothing to settle, little girl. i told you, don't waste your time. look at the time! the guests will be here any minute! what are we gonna do? let them in. no! no, archie. we can't. you're here.
these parties are not just for the guy being surprised. see, you're the surprisee. but these parties are also for the surprisers. well, if i'm the surprisee, then ipso fatso, you're the jerkee. no, archie, we gotta think of the guests. mike's right. no, he ain't. mike is dumb. what we gotta think of the guests for? all they gotta do is show up with the presents. but, arch, it's psychological. ha ha ha. "psychological"! once more we hear from dr. sigmund freus. arch, don't you see how upset these people are gonna be if you take away their chance to shout "surprise"? yeah, archie, they've all been looking forward to shouting at you. gloria: hey, ma! is this the box? oh, yeah. i'm sure it's in here. archie, look!
gia, italy, 1944." archie, if we knew how old you were then, we could figure out how old you are now. i know how old i am now! forty-nine today. now, let's forget this. will you do something useful and get me a beer? [doorbell rings] oh, it's them! it's the guests! come on, you gotta leave! [all yelling] gloria: give me your arm. what do you want me to do? put on your coat! you gotta go out the back door and in the front like you're coming home from work. and would you please act surprised? come on, come on! i can get out the door myself!
