June and Ward are planning on going to a friend's anniversary party on Friday night, and are hoping Wally will stay home with the Beaver. Wally however has a date that night. Beaver, now being twelve, is at that stage where Ward and June aren't quite sure if he is ready to stay home by himself and thus are contemplating hiring a sitter. Beaver believes after the conversation he has with them that they've made up their mind not to hire a sitter, so Beaver is excited to act the big kid in front of Gilbert and Richard in telling them that he would rather stay home by himself than go out with them to the movies on Friday night. So Beaver is upset when his parents do decide to hire a sitter. She is Judy Walker, a teenager around Wally's age. Beaver has to figure out how to pretend that Judy isn't his sitter, especially when Gilbert and Richard decide to come over. Through it all, Beaver finds that some sitters, like Judy, aren't all that bad. Written by
