Daunted by the length of "The Three Musketeers" that he chose to read for a school book report, Beaver writes his report from a movie version of the story instead, not realizing until too late that the movie he watched was a musical farce.

Ward Cleaver: Yes, well you just put that ball and glove away and get started on it right now.
Theodore Cleaver: But gee, Dad, it's a thick book. It'll take me at least two whole days to read it.
Ward Cleaver: Well, you should have thought of that two weeks ago.
