Lessons Learned At The Dentist's Office
20 January 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Beaver gets his first cavity and has to have it drilled by Dr. Harrison. He was fine, until Clarence "Lumpy" Rutherford told him what happens when you have a cavity and made this loud rat-a-tat noise like a jackhammer. Now Beaver was scared to go. Before, the experience was nothing but good and he got a free toy. Now, he's petrified at the thought of a jackhammer drilling away at his teeth.

Ward takes him to the office and is disgusted with Beaver's scaredy-cat attitude. They meet Fred Rutherford and his daughter Violet (played by Veronica Cartwright) and Fred, in his nerd-and-ignorant style, makes things worse.

In the end, Beaver and his dad both learn some lessons. Ward, in particularly, reflects about being a good father and not expecting his kids to be perfect.
