Storyline

Beaver and Gilbert are caddying at the golf club for a twosome comprised of Ken Langley and Art Howard respectively. Beaver overhears that they have a bet on the game. As Beaver is keeping score, he knows that what Mr. Langley is telling him to mark down is not always the correct number of strokes for a hole, shaving a stroke here and there, enough to win the match and the bet, the first time that Mr. Langley would have ever beat Mr. Howard. Beaver feels wrong about helping Mr. Langley cheat. That guilt that Beaver feels gets worse first when Mr. Langley provides Beaver with an exorbitant tip - which to him almost feels like a payoff for his silence - and second when he learns that the bet itself was not for some measly sum but rather $500. Beaver has to decide what to do in the matter, and if he decides to keep quiet whether his conscience will ever get the better of him. Written by Huggo

Beaver's Moral Bravery
19 April 2016 | by (Alexandria, VA) – See all my reviews

"The way I figure it, the less you have to do with adults, the better off ya are." (Paraphrased.)

This wise observation, offered by Gilbert to Beaver at the end of "Beaver, the Caddy," is emblematic of the subtly subversive nature of LITB. The series was never afraid to present adults in a bad light, even though the ultimate message seemed to be that people are fundamentally good. In this final-season episode, caddy Beaver catches business executive Mr. Langley doctoring his golf score so as to win a $500 bet with a colleague. What's more, Langley offers Beaver an exorbitant tip, which looks like payoff for his silence! Beaver's well-formed conscience gets the better of him, and he takes the exceptionally brave action of visiting Langley in his office and calling him out on his wrongdoing. How Langley straightens out the situation and redeems himself, you'll have to see for yourself. This episode shows Beaver growing ever more securely into moral maturity.

Langley is played by Richard Simmons (the star of television's "Sergeant Preston of the Yukon"), who is the very picture of a 1950s business executive. The golfing sequences are nicely done.
