While in Driscoll's Toy Store, Peter saves young Tina Spencer from harm while the shelving unit she climbs up to reach a doll on the top shelf collapses. A relieved Mrs. Spencer and Mr. Driscoll want to make sure the world hears about Peter's act of bravery by informing the local media. Peter loves all the adulation, especially the fact of Mrs. Spencer buying him whatever he wants at Driscoll's as a measure of her appreciation and his photograph appearing in a front page story, which later results in the newspaper's readers naming him Citizen of the Month, which also comes with a $50 prize. Peter, with a massively swelled head, believes that his proverbial fifteen minutes of fame will last forever. However, Peter's behavior because of the adulation may make his fifteen minutes end sooner than later. Written by
