Synopsis
Archie reads the famous lines from Robert Burns's classic poem "To A Louse," where the poet wishes we could see ourselves as others see us. Archie disagrees with Burns, claiming that other people don't get a true picture of us. He then relates all the ways other people see him, claiming that only he can see the true Archie. But when he looks in the mirror, he sees a handsome muscleman.
