Quotes

Gilbert Bates: Finish your autobiography yet, Beaver?
Theodore 'Beaver' Cleaver: Yeah.
Gilbert Bates: Hey, that's neat.
Theodore 'Beaver' Cleaver: No it isn't. I only have two pages, and Mr. Thompson said you had to have three whole pages.
Gilbert Bates: So, write another page, you dummy. We don't have to hand it in 'til Wednesday.
Theodore 'Beaver' Cleaver: I can't. After I wrote two pages, my whole life was used up.

What, more advice from Gil?
10 July 2017 | by elbgaSee all my reviews

In this episode, Theo continues to be an insufferable 8th-grader. Does this guy ever learn from his past foolishness? And where are all these new classmates coming from in the final season? Is there a problem up in Belport like Love Canal that's forcing families to move to Mayfield? The Beav's long-lived misogyny is puzzling: He should be falling all over himself to have a girl like Betsy mooning after him. The funny line here is Teddy's comment about eating spareribs and the action on display that ensues. Hey, and that's Arnold-the-rich-kid- from-Raleigh's dad from TAGS stepping in as a teacher at Grant Elementary. He is more likable in this role. I wonder how come Smiling Woman (aka Nice dress, Nellie) from TAGS is never spotted here among the many actors who must have been seen traipsing back and forth between the CBS sound stages of the period? Finally, it's interesting the number of times the Bros. Cleaver talk about running afoul of Ward's physical punishment--getting "clobbered" in the boys' teen jargon. Their dad has previously assured us he would never hit the lads. Good man, Mr. C.
