Parents Ward and June, and older brother Wally, try to keep Theodore ('the Beaver') out of trouble. However, Beaver continues to end up in one kind of jam or another. These situations are easily resolved to the satisfaction of all involved and the Beaver gets off with a few stern moralistic words. Instigator and troublemaker Eddie Haskell is an older kid who always manages to avoid being caught.
Larry Mondello Quotes
|Season 3 / Episode 22: - Larry's Club|
Mrs. Margaret Mondello: Did you find out where Beaver was?
Larry Mondello: [Larry is tearing a rag into strips] Yeah, I'm pretty sure what he was doin', the rat.
Mrs. Margaret Mondello: Why Larry, he's your best friend. How could you say that?
Larry Mondello: 'Cause he is a rat. He's a triple-dirty rat, and eats rotten food.
Mrs. Margaret Mondello: [as Larry continues ripping the rag to pieces] Oh stop that Larry, you're making me nervous.
Larry Mondello: Yeah, just about everything I do makes you nervous.
Mrs. Margaret Mondello: Now Larry, what happened between you and Beaver?
Larry Mondello: Well, Harold and some of the other guys at school got up a club, and they were whisperin', and I heard Beaver was goin' over this morning and join. That's why the rat wasn't home.
Mrs. Margaret Mondello: [outraged] Well! Nobody's going to keep my little boy out of a club. I'll just call Harold's mother and insist that they let you join.
Larry Mondello: But gee, Mom, if you went and did that, how could I go make believe I didn't care about their smelly old club?
Mrs. Margaret Mondello: Now Larry, dear, you mustn't let this upset you. All those boys are going to be very sorry some day when you're head of a big company.
Larry Mondello: Sure they are, but in the meantime, what am I going to do on my weekends?
|Season 3 / Episode 21: - Beaver's Dance|
Larry Mondello: Hey, Wally, how come they make you wear white gloves in dancing school?
Wallace 'Wally' Cleaver: Well, I don't know. I guess they don't want you slobbin' up the girls.
