Beaver in general does not like to eat green vegetables. At this evening's dinner, he doesn't want to eat the Brussels sprouts on his plate. He does whatever he can to get out from eating them - even hiding them in his shirt pocket. But June, finding where he's hidden them, insists that he eat them. In private, June and Ward disagree on whether they should make him eat the sprouts, June insisting that he does. So she ultimately provides Beaver an ultimatum: eat the Brussels sprouts, or else he is not allowed to go to dinner out and the major league football game the rest of the family is going to tomorrow evening. Beaver still refuses to eat them. June doesn't like the thought of leaving Beaver out of their family outing, but she also doesn't want to back down from what she said she was going to do. Ward, June and Beaver come to a compromise, but that compromise comes a little sooner and in a more embarrassingly public manner than they were all expecting. Written by Huggo
