It's a rainy weekend day, when all in the Cleaver household are stuck inside figuring how to spend their time. When Eddie and Tooey come over, the boys' minds wander. Although it was really Beaver's idea, Eddie takes credit for the idea that he, Wally and Tooey build a clubhouse on the vacant lot across the street. They will charge other eighth graders $1 to join, but Eddie decides to charge Beaver $3 instead, just because. As Eddie, Wally and Tooey start building the clubhouse, Beaver starts trying to get the $3. When Ward refuses to give him the money knowing that Beaver will not really appreciate it, Beaver, after speaking to June, decides he will try and raise the money the way adults do it. Beaver starts his own business based on what he sees Pete the hobo doing, but Beaver puts his own spin on it. As the older boys' focus on the clubhouse begins to fade, Beaver shows his mettle by sticking to his plan. But a further chat with Pete makes Beaver reconsider his end goal. Written by Huggo
