Storyline

After going head to head with co-worker Fred Rutherford over a business deal, Ward comes home at the end of the day to find Beaver with a black eye. Concerned when Beaver says he ran away from the kid who hit him, Ward gives him tips on self defense and tells Beaver to go confront the boy; but Ward doesn't know that the "boy" who punched Beaver was Fred's daughter, Violet Rutherford!

Goofs

About five minutes into the program, when Ward is lecturing the Beaver re: coming to him/June with problems, like for instance, being punched in the eye, near the end of the lecture, Ward places his hands gently on Beaver's legs to emphasize a point. Near the end of the scene, the camera shifts from over Beaver's shoulder, to a shot from over Ward's shoulder, and suddenly Mr. Cleaver hands are no longer on the Beav's legs but are now resting on Ward's lap instead.
