After going head to head with co-worker Fred Rutherford over a business deal, Ward comes home at the end of the day to find Beaver with a black eye. Concerned when Beaver says he ran away from the kid who hit him, Ward gives him tips on self defense and tells Beaver to go confront the boy; but Ward doesn't know that the "boy" who punched Beaver was Fred's daughter, Violet Rutherford!
