  • Ward and June are doing a clean up job around the house. Among the junk they throw out is some junk mail, one which offers a "free" five day trial for an accordion for Theodore Cleaver. Since everybody in the house is working, Beaver asks what chore - for a fee - he can do. June allows him to empty the trash. Beaver finds the certificate for the accordion trial offer. He is contemplating sending away for it, thinking he'll have five whole days to fool around with it. Eddie convinces Beaver to do it, saying that he can become famous being a star accordionist. When the accordion arrives, Wally makes Beaver realize how little time he actually has with it, needing to get it back to the express mail office by after school on Monday, two days away. What Beaver also does not account for is the $6.25 shipping fee - $7 with insurance, the importance of which he understands as the accordion is worth $280 - money which he doesn't have. Beaver needs to figure out how to raise the money quickly, all the while hiding the accordion from his parents.
