Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Cory (Ben Savage) wants to participate in his classroom's upcoming water-gun war but doesn't have a "cool" enough weapon. Teacher Mr. Feeny (William Daniels) offers to give Cory $58 to purchase a fancy water-gun in exchange for painting Feeny's shutters. Unfortunately, the impatient Cory does a super-sloppy rush job and his dad Alan (William Russ) orders him to redo the shutters from top to bottom--even if it means missing the big war! This episode marks the first appearance of Lee Norris as bookworm Stuart Minkus.
