Already upset that Beaver (Jerry Mathers) has gotten short shrift in a series of "trades" in his classroom, June (Barbara Billingsley) is aghast when her son comes home with a new pet rat named Peter, which he has purchased for fifty cents. When June refuses to allow Beaver to keep the rat -- and also lectures him about having more common sense when it comes to the value of money -- Beaver promptly sells Peter to Violet Rutherford for three times more than he paid for it! It is up to Ward (Hugh Beaumont) to advise our hero that one does not snooker one's friends in the world of high finance.
