It's a rainy weekend day, when all in the Cleaver household are stuck inside figuring how to spend their time. When Eddie and Tooey come over, the boys' minds wander. Although it was really Beaver's idea, Eddie takes credit for the idea that he, Wally and Tooey build a clubhouse on the vacant lot across the street. They will charge other eighth graders $1 to join, but Eddie decides to charge Beaver $3 instead, just because. As Eddie, Wally and Tooey start building the clubhouse, Beaver starts trying to get the $3. When Ward refuses to give him the money knowing that Beaver will not really appreciate it, Beaver, after speaking to June, decides he will try and raise the money the way adults do it. Beaver starts his own business based on what he sees Pete the hobo doing, but Beaver puts his own spin on it. As the older boys' focus on the clubhouse begins to fade, Beaver shows his mettle by sticking to his plan. But a further chat with Pete makes Beaver reconsider his end goal. Written by Huggo

The rain causes Ward to practice putting in the house until the greens dry out. However there doesn't appear to be very wet conditions in the vacant lot where the older boys are building the club house. Also when Beaver is crossing the bridge he talks to the man painting it. It would be very unlikely or irresponsible to be painting a bridge so soon after such a rain. See more »


Ward Cleaver: [discussing Beaver's attempts to make some money] You know, this reminds me of when I was a kid. I made eighty cents once charging other kids to look at my grandfather asleep in bed.
June Cleaver: Why in the world would anyone want to look at your grandfather sleeping?
Ward Cleaver: He had a beard.
