In this classic episode, Beaver (Jerry Mathers) becomes a nervous wreck when his mom invites his teacher Miss Landers (Sue Randall) to the Cleaver house for dinner. He is especially worried after Larry (Rusty Stevens) warns him that something awful is bound to happen if his teacher is allowed to cross his threshold. On the night of the dinner, Miss Landers is more beautiful and charming than ever (she's even wearing open-toed shoes, proving that she's a human being after all), and gradually Beaver overcomes his trepidations. Little does he know that the enterprising Larry has perched himself in a tree next door to the Cleavers, charging his classmates a quarter apiece to spy upon Miss Landers as she eats her meal! Best moment -- attempting to make small talk with Miss L., Beaver's brother Wally (Tony Dow) comes up with a pointed question about President Andrew Johnson.
