As hard as he tries, Dobie just can't seem to get rid of Zelda Gilroy, the one girl he doesn't want but wants him. Zelda is aware of Dobie's failings, such as not being a very bright student and thus not having any future career prospects. Zelda compensates for that by mapping out their future: they will live on a farm after they get married so that Dobie will at least be able to provide food. In being a farmer, Dobie has to take biology class, with which Zelda will help him. Dobie agrees to take biology only because he knows that brainy Zelda has his academic best interest in mind and will help him. Dobie sees being a farmer as his only future hope, regardless of if Zelda is in that future. As usual, Maynard follows Dobie into biology class. Their first project is to examine the effects of hormones on chicken. One will be injected with female hormones, one will be injected with male hormones and the control chicken will get no injection. Three problems arise with their new arrangement. First, Mr. Gillis, who doesn't know that Dobie has chickens, keeps on hearing rooster crows, which he is made to believe is all in his imagination. Second, Dobie wants out of his arrangement with Zelda if only because he has met the pretty Imogene Burkhart, who he sees as a possible girlfriend/future wife. And third, Maynard is forced to give the chickens their injections. He believes that a 2 cc injection means a 2 cup injection.

Betty Jane doesn't want the election to get between their possible relationship, but she does open Dobie's eyes to the primary issue of the campaign - Proposition E - which Cheever supports as it would tear down an aging neighborhood that many consider a slum. In discussions with his father about the election, Dobie learns that Herbert doesn't know about the issues at all - that he is campaigning solely on his charisma - but when he does hear about Proposition E, he doesn't support it because it is the neighborhood in which he grew up, which brings with it nostalgic and fond memories for him. This stance places a rift between Dobie and Herbert, which brings up whether standing up for one's beliefs, being informed and correct about an issue, or family is most important.

She counters that she doesn't need to study since she's going to cheat, for which Dobie chastises her, still solely trying to get out of having to take her out. Overhearing this encounter is Eloise McInerney, a girl who Dobie has known since they were children but who he always thought unattainable. Eloise is a straight arrow who believes in unadulterated honesty, and this encounter shows her that Dobie is an honest fellow unlike what she previously believed. However, when she learns that Dobie's father is using a scam to get out from paying a $10 parking ticket, she figures that the apple doesn't fall far from the tree. To get Eloise's fleeting affections back, Dobie has to prove to her that his father is going to pay the parking ticket, that proof being the payment receipt. But getting Dobie's father to pay the fine and getting the parking violations clerk to accept the money aren't as easy as Dobie believes. And if Eloise won't have him, Dobie convincing Mona that he has larceny in his heart is also easier said than done.

Dobie has asked Linda Sue Faversham to marry him sixty-one times, and she has turned him down sixty-one times, primarily because she says she needs to marry someone with money to be able to support her family of poor derelicts, and Dobie has zero prospect as a money making husband. But on proposal number sixty-two, cash register-for-a-heart Linda Sue surprisingly says yes for what she considers a screwy reason: love. Her change of heart is because she is passing the torch of finding the money making husband to her younger sister, Amanda Jean. Amanda Jean seems to be Linda Sue's perfect protégé. But if Amanda Jean fell for some poor shlub like Linda Sue did, then Linda Sue would have to return to her money hungry ways. That's why Dobie has to get his equally poor cousin Dunky out of the picture - he who has fallen in love with Amanda Jean, and it seems she with him - that is unless they can convert young, impressionable Dunky into a mean, cutthroat money maker.

At Zelda's recent 21st birthday, Zelda implied that the best present she could receive would be to marry Dobie, while Dobie in turn implied that that would never happen. As such, Zelda told Dobie she would embark on a plan to marry him that would involve Maynard. Maynard's most prized possession is his freedom, and Dobie, as his best friend, would never let that freedom be taken away from him. So if Zelda was able to get Maynard to propose to her, Dobie would step in to save Maynard. Zelda was able to use logic to get engaged to Maynard, without telling him her true purpose. As Maynard truly did see marrying Zelda as the best thing for himself, Dobie could not break his heart by telling him Zelda's true purpose. And although most in town, including the parents, didn't approve of the wedding, no one saw it as their place to stop it. So when the J.P. asks if anyone knows of just cause why Maynard and Zelda should not be married, will anyone - most specifically Dobie or Zelda - pipe up?
