Wally is excited by his double date with Eddie this evening. What he's forgotten about is that he also promised to babysit five-year old Chuckie Murdock this evening. Exhausting all his friends, none of whom can babysit in his place, Wally makes an unlikely suggestion as a replacement: Beaver. Wally convinces both Beaver and their parents that Beaver is capable of doing the job. But Beaver is thrown a bit of a curve ball when he gets to the Murdock house and finds that he isn't sitting with five-year old Chuckie Murdock, but rather the Murdock's ten-year old daughter Pat Murdock. Beaver was all prepared to deal with a little boy, not a slightly older girl. Regardless of how the evening goes, Beaver just hopes that precocious Pat, who goes to Grant Avenue School as well, doesn't spread the word that he played "girl" games. What actually ends up happening is even worse in Beaver's estimation. Written by Huggo

If Chuckie threw himself on the floor and started chewin' the rug or somethin', Beaver could call Mom and you guys could get over there before he could eat ...
