Larry Mondello: I woulda used a hand grenade.
Theodore Cleaver: Well, I betcha he woulda too, if they'd've had 'em in those days.

Beaver Cans His Parents......Temporarily
21 January 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Wally and Beaver go to a local "Field Days" and Wally brings home a trophy for his track prowess. Beaver, who only entered one race and didn't do well, has nothing. So, when Ward congratulates Wally for his efforts and his trophy, Beaver gets jealous and pouts. June doesn't help, always defending the kids. (This woman spoils these kids rotten with Ward having to do all the discipline.)

Anyway, Beaver is told to leave Wally's things alone but, of course, he doesn't obey and handles the trophy when pal Larry Mondello comes over. Beaver then accidentally breaks the trophy. He and Larry try to glue it together but it looks pretty bad. When it's discovered, Beaver is confronted. He gets very defensive and tells his parents he would like new ones that don't yell at him all the time.

The next day, he goes to an adoption agency and asks, "I want to find some new parents. Ya got any?"

The last five minutes to this story are very heartwarming, the kind of thing that made this television show special.
