"Women. Wow!"

Few shows mastered the art of minimalism like LEAVE IT TO BEAVER. The series could create moral lessons and psychological interest even when less than nothing was going on. In this final-season episode, Wally is going on a date with lovely Carolyn Stewart, but Carolyn's little sister Susan needs someone to stay with her. So Carolyn comes up with the solution of arranging a double date: Wally with Carolyn, and Susan with Beaver! Wally is full of trepidation about Beaver's accepting this deal, but to his surprise Beaver is all for it. In fact, he's considerably ahead of Wally: far from needing coaching on how to act on a date, he's lecturing Wally on how to act so as not to embarrass him! Moreover, Beaver has developed an astonishingly cocky attitude about girls (Ward refers to it as a "Cary Grant attitude"); but is this just a cover for insecurity?

Preparations are made for the date, and Beaver and Wally dress to the nines. Just as they are about to go out the door Carolyn calls: Susan has gotten cold feet about the date and is backing out. Wally tells Beaver about this, and then tells him to call Susan up and talk to her. Beaver and Susan share a touching and sweet phone conversation in which they commiserate over their mutual insecurities and decide to give dating a pass until they are a bit older. Wally and Carolyn decide to spend a quiet evening at Carolyn's home looking after Susan (probably what they should have done all along).

Despite the fact that virtually nothing happens in this episode, we get plenty of the compassion and wisdom LITB was known for. Score one for artful minimalism.
