Synopsis by Hal Erickson
With Gilbert (Stephen Talbot) over to spend the evening with Beaver (Jerry Mathers), Ward (Hugh Beaumont) and June (Barbara Billingsley) agree to allow Wally (Tony Dow) to attend a party at Lumpy's house while they themselves go out. The only proviso is that Wally not spend the whole night with Lumpy (Frank Bank), and that he come home at a reasonable hour. But when Lumpy finds a stain on his rug, he begs Wally to stick around until morning so that his parents won't yell at him. Dutifully, Wally calls home for permission -- but Ward and June still haven't returned yet, placing Wally in another "darned if he does, darned if he doesn't" situation.
