When Jeff finds the winning raffle ticket for a new sports car, he faces some adult sized responsibilities. Jeff sees a woman from behind drop a raffle ticket and before he can return it to her, she disappears. The only possible clue is her child's droopy drawers, but as Dr. and Mrs. Stone agree there are lots of children with droopy-drawers.
Jeff begins to learn the cost of owning and operating an expensive sports car (such as insurance). He also discovers how people now treat him differently from his boy and girls friends to prospective employers (he needs to pay for the car). When Jeff thinks he sees the child and woman again, he reaches a crossroad in his life. Tune in to see the path Jeff takes as he deals with this moral dilemma.moreless
Jeff has a busy two days dealing with typical teenager adventures - girls, baseball, and exploring possible jobs, while helping out his school. It is again time for the Sadie Hawkins dance and Jeff has yet to hear from a girl. Meanwhile he has an interview with baseball great (and future baseball hall of famer) Don Drysdale for the school newspaper. Tune in and see the problems presented to Jeff, his solutions, and, well, how it all turns out for the Stone family of Hilldale, IL.
Hilldale high school students can't attend the junior prom stag and as the episode opens they don't yet have dates. Fortunately, two new girls recently moved into the neighborhood. Jeff meets the first girl, when she brings by mail (for Dr. Stone) delivered, by mistake, to her new home. He finds her stunning. So stunning, in fact, he can't get a word out and she leaves without him asking her anything, such as her name, number, address, to the junior prom, etc.
Later Smitty see her at the malt shop working. As Smitty needs moral support to talk to her and also ask her to the junior prom, he goes and get Jeff to be his wingman. When Jeff sees Smitty is after the girl who tongue tied him earlier in the day, he's beside himself, but being a true friend he lets Smitty ask her out. Later Jeff meets the second new girl (who lives three doors down from him) and his Mother sets him up to invite her to the junior prom. Jan, the second new girl, realizes Jeff really doesn't want to take her to the prom and gives him a way out. As Jeff is a true gentleman, he declines and tells her he really wants to take her to the prom. At the end of the scene they agree he should come by her place at 7:30 PM (19:30) CT to pick her up and she'll be ready at 8 PM (20:00) CT.
Once at the prom Smitty and Jeff's date (the second girl) hit it of, as though they were made for each other. Thus Jeff ends up with the first girl after all, when they switch partners. The girls and boys both dance the night away with their new partners, until it is time for someone to sing with the band.
The Hilldale student body nominates Jeff to sing with the band, by taking one big step backwards. This leaves Jeff out on the floor and looking like he took two steps forward. You should tune in to see how well:
A) Jeff (Paul Peterson) sings,
B) He explains the date switching to his parents, and
C) They're reaction.moreless
Smitty and Jeff have a tag along, his 6 year old brother, who won't be good when searching for girls. What are they to do, but to ask Mrs. Stone to watch him. Problem is her ride shows up early and she has to leave. Dr. Stone just got home from an unexpected call to see an entire first grade class at this new downtown office. He has golfing plans for the afternoon, but what is a good husband to do when his wife has to leave? Right! Dr. Stone and Hoby end up waiting for Smitty and Jeff. Dr. Stone continues getting ready to go golfing. He has his golfing shoes, puts on his white high-top Keds sneakers, and waits for Smitty and Jeff. Instead his fellow doctors and golfing buddies show up and they try to figure out what to do with Hoby. Unable to find a solution Dr. Stone gives up, sends his friends on their way, accepts the situation, and regresses to the father of a six year old Son. Tune in to find out how it turns out for Smitty, Jeff, and Donna, when they finally get home.moreless
