  • Peter Meets Aurther at School, yet he is Peter's Double!!!

    Possibly my favorite episode of the series,Peter meets up with a lookalike guy named Arther and right off,He test the waters by having Arther goes and meet the family as Peter.

    Later, a series of events leads Peter to have 2 dates on the same night,a girl he likes and the daughter of a clinet Mike has.

    Here is where it gets great, Peter and Arther will get togather and Arther will stay at home with the daughter while Peter goes to the costume party with the other.

    Only Arther calls up and says he will be late.

    Peter have to rush inbetween both of the girls to keep from getting himself in trouble,..

    Another fine example of the Lone Ranger Theme is here as Peter dons the costume and back agian till Arther gets there.moreless
