Beaver receives an invitation to Linda Dennison's party. He thinks it not out of the ordinary until the other kids, teasing him that he's Linda's boyfriend, believe he's the only boy invited. As Beaver asks all the other boys in their class, it does seem like that is the case. After Wally and the Beaver get punished by their parents for pretending to be Ward on the telephone to Linda telling her that Beaver can't go to the party, Ward and June know Beaver doesn't want to go to the party, but make him go anyway despite his protests, even while he is about to walk in the door of the Dennison house. It isn't until Beaver is actually at the party that Ward and June find out why Beaver didn't want to go, a reason with which they can empathize. Unbeknown to Ward and June, there is someone else at the Dennison house who can also empathize with Beaver's plight. Written by
