Episode opens with Mr. Peepers on the train to Chicago to attend Mr. Weskit's stag party. Peepers starts a conversation with a fellow train passenger by saying he is going to Chicago, where Kukla, Fran & Ollie come from. A muscular baby on the train won't release his hand and then tears off part of his tie. In the taxi, he asks the driver if they are near the Museum of Natural History, but the driver has never heard of it. Marge's family is quite rich, as her father owns a meat packing firm; as Peepers knocks on the door, many berries fall off the wreath onto the porch. The butler lets him in and shows him to the library, where he takes down a book and then can't fit it back onto the shelf. Then he pulls down a giant dictionary. Making conversation with Marge is difficult because he does not want to reveal Wes' faults. Marge tells Robinson that Wes will be leaving the junior high school and taking a job in the meat packing firm. The stag party is being held at Club Wow! Marge's football player brother, Rock, and his friends bully Robinson into drinking and smoking cigars. Rock doesn't like people who never played football. He would be Wes' boss at the meat packing plant. When Peepers leaves for a moment, Rock makes fun of him. Wes leaves right away with Robinson and they catch an earlier train home; Wes reveals he won't be leaving the school after all. Marge shows up on the train and says she's going back with them for Christmas vacation. Wes falls victim to the strong baby. At the end of the program, Peepers promotes Christmas Seals

"When Mister Peepers and Nancy accompany Wes and Marge to the courthouse to get their marriage license, a rumor starts that Nancy and Peepers are about to get married as well"--Script synopsis provided by Everett Greenbaum. Program opens at the train station where Wes and Peepers are waiting for Marge's train. They see Mr. Remington, who wants to hear the end of the joke about the showgirls and the farm boys from last week, but the end of the joke is drowned out by the sound of the train arriving. Peepers reads through the train schedules and finds a train that runs only on Columbus Day. At the courthouse, Peepers and Nancy get there before Wes and Marge and are observed waiting there by Mrs. Porter; the gossip begins to spread. Wes and Marge have to give their information in public; as they give weight and age, the clerk changes each piece of data to make it more accurate. Wes has beauty marks on his knees. Nancy is going to Chicago with Marge to pick out her trousseau. Mrs. Gurney, all excited, recites Browning (How do I love thee, let me count the ways) to Peepers and Nancy, who are puzzled. Wes calls Robinson on the phone and reveals that the gossip column in the paper has hinted that Robinson and Nancy are getting married. Robinson calls Patience Lovewell, the columnist, to request a correction and then visits Nancy's father to explain. He begins by pointing out that they live in a small town; Mr. Remington resists this characterization of Jefferson City, pointing out that the shoe factory added eight workers last week. When he reads the gossip column and then hears that they aren't engaged after all, he is disappointed. "I was looking forward to having a scientist in the family." Finally, Peepers calls Nancy long distance in Chicago. "Sometimes rumors can come true," he tells her. At the end of the show, Wally Cox congratulates the Boy Scouts of America for their 43rd anniversary

Everything goes wrong for Wes on the day of his engagement party. As the show opens, Robinson is in the candy store getting candy for the party, while Wes is in a no-parking zone; first the clerk takes awhile to come out, then he keeps talking, and Robinson keeps changing his mind about his order. Wes keeps honking outside. Finally Wes comes in and tells them to take their time because he just got a ticket for unnecessary horn-blowing. Then Nancy and Marge are late because they can't decide whether or not to wear a hat and which perfume to use, so Wes gets impatient. Peepers is trying to learn to dance using footprints on the floor and can't decide whether or not doing the dip is too risky or not. Mr. Remington is doing the dishes and shows Wes and Robinson the garbage disposal. First Robinson drops in a banana peel, then a walnut, then a grape. Remington tells a joke about a sick hog that Robinson has already heard. Wes starts a joke about showgirls in a small town talking to farm boys, but the punch-line is drowned out by two walnuts in the garbage disposal. The girls are finally ready, but Wes has another ticket for parking in front of the driveway. At the restaurant, Martinelli's, Wes is blue, claiming that they have the worst table in the place because they got there late; he brings everyone down. Robinson makes a rabbit with his napkin, then asks Marge to dance; he tries to dip. They discuss Wes' behavior with Robinson trying to cheer Marge up. Wes forgets to give Marge the ring until Robinson passes it to him. Wes apologizes to everyone. In the car outside, while kissing Marge, Wes honks his horn accidentally and gets another ticket

Wes gives Mr. Peepers two tickets to the drive-in movie and lends him his car. Robinson goes to ask Nancy for a date, but discovers she has just accepted an invitation from Freddy. Wes advises Peepers to pretend he has a date himself, but the ruse soon fails when he inadvertently parks next to Nancy and her date. The hood of his car gets stuck, blocking his view, so, at Nancy's invitation, he moves into the back seat of Freddy's car. Freddy does not take this gracefully. Marilyn Monroe rivets both Robinson and Freddy. Robinson volunteers to go the concession stand, but when he returns, he gets into the wrong car in the dark. Later he confesses to Nancy that he told a lie about having a date, and she says she would rather have gone with him. It starts to snow and Freddy's convertible top tears; Nancy and Freddy end up sitting in Robinson's car to get warm

"Wally Cox runs into a double-date dilemma"--TV guide, November 7-13, 1952. The program opens at the luxurious Mid-City Bowling Lane with sterilized bowling balls. Mr. Peepers is practicing bowling during his lunch hour in preparation for a match between Jefferson Junior High and Wrigley Junior High that evening. On the bus back from practicing, Wes and Mr. Peepers encounter Nancy's father who alludes to seeing Mr. Peepers that evening; apparently Mr. Peepers has forgotten an engagement and is now double-booked. Artful conversation with Nancy reveals that he is supposed to be giving a speech on fire prevention at her house at the same time that he is supposed to be bowling in the match. At the fire prevention meeting, Mr. Remington encourages Mr. Peepers to sneak away with him into his den to watch a Rin Tin Tin western on his television set ("only one channel"). Mr. Peepers sneaks out the window and goes to the bowling match, which is running late due to a power outage. Mr. Remington sees Mr. Peepers on television winning the match for Jefferson Junior High; when Nancy phones the bowling alley and Robinson learns that she is watching, he gives his fire prevention speech over the television; his speech is such a big hit that the television station invites him back to give the talk to the entire community

Opens in Mr. Peepers' rented room as he is fixing his breakfast; a train goes by, and he remarks that his room is "convenient to transportation." His refrigerator needs defrosting, so getting ice cubes for his orange juice is no easy matter. In a flashback, Mr. Peepers and Wes recall the panic caused the previous year when the City Council made plans to fix a broken clock whose mechanism had become home to a rare species of bird. Before fixing the clock, Peepers uses math to figure out the actual time whenever he hears the clock chime. Mr. Peepers has become foster parent to the abandoned birds (myrtle warblers), and he is concerned that they be allowed to learn to fly before the clock is moved so that repairs can be done. Mrs. Gurney is teaching Sandra her role as Lady Macbeth ("out nasty old spot"). To delay the repairs, Robinson and Wes pretend the clock is fixed, and ring it by hand night and day, until the birds finally fly away

His sister Agnes, who is still working at the state observatory, will be coming tomorrow, but he'll have to make review sheets all weekend. At home, Peepers puts on his pajamas and starts to work. His adjustable desk lamp misbehaves. Many kleenex later, he is exhausted and falling asleep. He opens his window to stay awake but falls asleep in a cold draft. The next morning, Wes finds him shaking and ill, burning with fever. Nancy comes and then summons Dr. Stevens, who orders him to stay in bed for 2-3 days. Mrs. Gurney makes him soup; she threw out the Worcestershire sauce because she couldn't pronounce it, and has trouble getting ice from the refrigerator, which needs defrosting. Agnes arrives. She is on special assignment to build an adding machine because there is no money in the budget for it. Wes persuades Peepers to let Agnes conduct the review. Several days later, when Peepers is well enough to administer the exam, all the students have passed.
