Indeed, both Wally and Beaver are excited that Eddie can do whatever he wants, especially as Eddie tells stories of always being waited on by and having parties with the young female tenants of the rooming house. So it is with trepidation that Ward and June allow Wally to join Lumpy in going to Eddie's for dinner followed by a sleepover.

Epic Eddie Episode
14 April 2016 | by (Alexandria, VA) – See all my reviews

This is a truly "epic" episode for Eddie Haskell, the most memorable of the trio of episodes in which Eddie attempts to break away and assert his independence (the others being "Eddie Quits School" and "Summer in Alaska"). Due to friction between him and his parents, Eddie has decided to move into a place of his own. As usual, Eddie talks a big talk about the great, independent lifestyle he is leading; however, Wally and Beaver soon discover, thanks to Eddie's kindly landlady, that the reality is far different. Instead of having cookouts and girls swarming around him, Eddie is dining on cornflakes and his only companion is a dog who is even sadder than he is. Wally - as true a friend as Eddie ever had - and the landlady join forces to get Eddie to move back home. This is an excellent episode that highlights Eddie's vulnerability. The landlady is played by prolific character actress Lurene Tuttle, who was the director of the adoption agency in the Second Season "Beaver Gets Adopted."
