Wally is at the age where he wants to be clean and neat in appearance, whereas Beaver is still at the age where he sees nothing wrong with being covered in dirt. Beaver fights at every turn from having to clean himself up, let alone those few times when he is to take a bath. Ward and June would like to see Beaver emulate his brother's behavior and decide to use a little psychology to get Beaver to clean up, not only himself but his and Wally's bedroom as well. Their actions do lead to Beaver cleaning up at least in his sensibilities, but it also has the unintended effect of Wally and Beaver having a disagreement, with Beaver wanting his own bedroom. Continuing their psychology, Ward and June decide to give Beaver his wish, which they believe he will soon come to realize isn't exactly what he wants.

You know dear, I'm afraid we hurt the Beaver's feelings last night.
Well we may have hurt him a little but I think we got the message across.
Well I wish we could get the message across with love and kindness.
Oh cheer up June. It everything else fails we can always resort to that.
