Eddie is telling everyone that he and pretty Caroline Shuster are going steady. When Wally and Eddie meet up with Caroline and Caroline's friend, Alma Hanson, it does seem like Eddie is telling the truth as Caroline confirms a date with him. She also has a pet name for Eddie: "Peachy". But later, Wally overhears Caroline talking to some other girls that she is only going out with Eddie because her boyfriend, Freddy Prior, is currently grounded and she wants a date for Saturday. In reality, Caroline considers Eddie a conceited creep, and she is leading him on for her own amusement. Wally has to figure out if he should keep quiet or tell Eddie the truth with the possible consequence of Eddie shooting the messenger. Written by
Did You Know?
Heck, Wally, girls are rats. They're even rats in Sunday School.
What do you mean they're rats in Sunday School?
Well, take this girl we read about in the Bible. She met this real neat guy and she cut off his hair, and then she turned him over to these bad guys, and they dragged him away, and they stuck out his eyes, and they were mean to him, too.
Oh, yeah. That was Samson and Delilah.
Yeah. And if girls are rats in the Bible, how do you expect them to be in person?
