Beaver has just returned from his stint away at summer camp, Camp König. There he met a new friend named Chopper Cooper who he wants to invite for a weekend visit. His parents allow him to invite Chopper. Ward and June are surprised when Chopper is escorted by his "Uncle" Dave, Chopper's mother's boyfriend who Chopper believes will be his new stepfather. Chopper also talks openly and candidly about his father's several remarriages and Chopper now having step-siblings. Even though they like Chopper, Ward and June are concerned that Chopper's views may be too worldly for Beaver, who has never had friends with divorced parents. Indeed, Beaver, after hearing all the neat presents Chopper gets from his various parents, wants his own parents to divorce, not really understanding what that means. But Beaver has a different view when he sees the effect of divorce a little more closely, especially as it affects the child in the family. Written by
