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. Without telling him the reason, Ward and June renege on allowing Wally to go when the Haskells ask them not to allow Wally to go, they who feel that Eddie is at a state where is almost ready to come home and that Wally and Lumpy's presence would give Eddie some more confidence to be on his own.

Clarence Rutherford: [Eddie has left home to live in his own apartment] That guy's really livin' it up. The only time he's been back home is to get clean sheets.
Ward Cleaver: Uh, have you boys, uh, seen where he's living?
Wally Cleaver: Well, not yet. Eddie says he's been pretty busy and hasn't had a chance to have the guys over yet.
Theodore Cleaver: Boy, it must really be neat to have your own place, and to be your own boss.

It's a dog's life.

Mom, you'll never believe it. Eddie Haskell has left home. Mom, you'll never believe it. Eddie fought with his parents and moved out. Mom, you'll never believe it. Eddie has his own room. You'll never believe it. We believe it and so does Ward.

Ward has seen Mr. Haskell and Eddie's father isn't happy about the move. He hopes the novelty of the new job and paying bills will run its course, and Eddie will come back. June wonders if Wally will get ideas; Ward believes Wally's concerns are graduating and going to college. Did any boys Ward knew run away. Yes, he says, they ran off to sea and returned millionaires.

To Beaver's surprise, Wally invited Lumpy for dinner. While watching Lumpy make the food disappear, the topic of Eddie comes up. The story is that he's living it up by eating TV dinners and listening to the radio. He might even get a phone!

Eddie stops by and has his usual line of BS when he talks to Ward and June. June panics. Eddie tells the boys he stopped by to get away from all the girls. He's living the high life. He has to fight off all the offers from the ladies to cook for him. He invites the guys over for dinner and to spend the night. Ward doesn't see a problem, and gives permission. But Mr. Haskell calls Ward and asks he not let Wally go over to Eddie's. Ward is willing to help buy that means reneging on his earlier promise.

Beaver, having overheard his dad's conversation, tells Wally that dad is about to tell him that he won't be able to go to Eddie's. And on cue, Ward appears. Ward can't tell him the whole story now, but someday he will. Beaver says he doesn't know the entire story, but it has something to do with the phone call. Ward also calls Lumpy's dad to tell him of Mr. Haskell's concern. Lumpy drives over and talks with Wally; now he can't go to Eddie's. Wally asks if Lumpy would drive over and tell Eddie that Wally can't go over Saturday. No way, Lumpy's dad has forbidden Lumpy from seeing Eddie period. As Lumpy is waiting for his father to get a letter from the Ohio patrol about driving without a front license plate, he can't upset his daddy.

Since Wally can't go to dinner at Eddie's, Wally asks if he can go over to see Eddie to tell them that he won't be coming for dinner. Beaver gets permission to tag along. Eddie's not there but Mrs. Evans the landlady is, the truth is told. The boys enter and see the room is a mess. Eddie is lonely. He even got a dog because he is so lonely. He has been eating sardines and corn flakes for dinner. She is so sorry for the boy that she tries to play cards with him at least twice a week. She shows the boys Eddie's clothes which are now all green. He washed everything together and the colors ran. Mrs. Evans feels the best thing the boy could do is return home.

On the way home, Wally and Beaver bump into Eddie. Sorry the girls won't be there, they went skiing or something. He will be making burgers on the grill. Wally tells Eddie that he won't be coming over and neither will Lumpy. Eddies does his expected blaming Ward and June for not allowing over; and he has lots of friends anyway. He's not Oliver Twist, you know. As Eddie moves away, Beaver tells Wally if Eddie wasn't such a wise guy that he'd feel sorry for Eddie. Wally says he feels sorry for Eddie now.

Eddie's going back home, and how did that come about? Eddie claims his parents came to him on bended knee begging for him to return. The truth is Mrs. Evans called Eddie's parents and told them how he was actually doing, so they came and got him. But how did she get their phone number. I sorta give it to says an embarrassed Wally. Ward is beaming at his son. Beaver says it was bad living in that old dark room all alone, so it's good Eddie is home. June is surprised at Beaver feeling sorry for Eddie. Beaver says he was thinking mostly about the dog.
