In this classic episode, Alice (Linda Lavin) is willing to make a profound sacrifice to cure Mel (Vic Tayback) of his gambling habit. A deal is struck: if Mel will give up his favorite vice, all the other diner workers will do likewise for 48 hours. This proves difficult when Alice's yen for chocolate, Flo's (Polly Holliday) desire for coffee and Vera's (Beth Howland) craving for tobacco get the better of them, culminating in a wild game of "gotcha" in Alice's apartment.
