Wally is attending an upcoming dance. He is learning to dance and wants to buy a new suit, which his parents are more than happy to buy for him. Although Wally was originally planning on going to the store with his father who would pick out the suit, Wally changes his mind about letting his father pick the suit when Eddie tells him that he should be old enough to pick out his own clothes. Ward and June reluctantly allow Wally to go to the store alone with Beaver, despite Ward figuring he won't like what Wally chooses even before Wally goes to the store. Ward and June vow not to criticize Wally's choice regardless of what he comes home with. But it's difficult for them, who hate Wally's "loud" suit. Conversely, Eddie, Tooey and Beaver love it. Ultimately, Ward tries everything to talk Wally into buying a more conservative suit. But June thinks she has a more underhanded but effective approach to get Wally to do what they want. Written by
Did You Know?
Wally, why did you and the other boys at the last minute decide not to take dates to the dance?
Wallace 'Wally' Cleaver
Well, Eddie said it's better if we go by ourselves. That way, you get to dance with all the other guys' girls, then you don't get stuck with them and have to buy 'em stuff on the way home.
