Here we are.

"Now, Dottie the Dinosaur

had never seen a human being before.

"Such a tiny creature who only walks

on two legs and eats berries.

'Couldn't be much

of a hunter,' said Dottie."

Dad! If a guy's old enough

to play football,

then don't you think maybe he's too old

to have his dad read to him?

Well, maybe you have

a point there, Beav.

You read it yourself,

but don't stay up too late.

- Thanks, Dad.

- [ Chuckles ] Well, good night, Beav.

Uh, Dad, if a guy's

too old to be read to,

then he's probably too old

to get kissed good night to.

Good night, Dad.

Good night.

- I think he took that pretty well.

- Yeah.

But I was worried,

'cause for a minute he had...

that same blubbery look

he had at the end of The Lion King.

[ Dog Barking

In The Distance ]

[ Mom ] Okay, everybody, gather around.

It's time for cake.

- Come on!

- Let's go, boys!

- Is everybody ready?

- I'm low on batteries.

Happy birthday to you

Happy birthday to you

You smell like a wino

Happy birthday to you

- Make a wish, Beaver.

- Big wish, Beav.

Make a wish.

- [ Cheering ]

- Way to go, Beav!

[ Murmuring ]

[ Eddie ] Hey, Lumpy, quit stuffin'

your face and pay attention.

I've put together a little photographic

compilation of my future soul mate.

And here's Karen

takin' her dog for a walk.

And here she is

at the store with her mom.

Oh! That's my

favorite outfit of hers.

Eddie, you might want to

back off a little bit, huh?

What are ya talkin' about?

I'm doin' great.

A week ago we were total strangers.

Last night... I was in her bedroom.

Yeah, you were in her bedroom,

all right.

But Karen and her family

were at the movies.

Can't you ever just

be happy for me? Hmm?

Mom, Dad, can we open the presents now?

Please, please, please, please.
