Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Wally (Tony Dow) considers himself the luckiest teen on Earth when the wealthy and "sophisticated" Myra (Pamela Beaird) agrees to date him. There's only one problem -- Myra has made clear that she would like Wally to purchase an orchid for her corsage. This of course, requires more money than Wally has ever seen in his life -- and his dad Ward (Hugh Beaumont) isn't about to lend it to him. This was the first Leave It to Beaver episode directed by Norman Abbott, a future fixture of such '70s sitcoms as Sanford and Son (and incidentally, fans of the first Back to the Future will instantly recognize the exterior of Wally's high school).
