Tom has started taking art classes, prompting Eddie to also become interested in art. Tom has "graduated from fruit" to drawing live female nude models. He's reluctant to tell Eddie what he's doing in art class and puts off his questions. Tom finally decides to show him the nude sketch and explains he was able to draw it because she was there, naked in front of him. Naturally, Eddie is full of questions and Tom explains it artistically. When a new neighbor around Eddie's age, Gretchen Buckner (Patti Cohoon-Friedman), comes over, Eddie asks her to take off her clothes to draw her. A panicked Mrs. Livingston calls for Tom to come home. Eddie doesn't feel he did anything wrong. He adds that he even paid her for it. Tom tries to explain that even if he was that serious about art it is wrong because he is too young. Tom feels it was just a mistake of innocence between children. Gretchen's father John (Angus Duncan) arrives to feel Tom is treating the matter too lightly. Tom feels John is making too much of it. Over a drink the fathers discuss their views to try and reach an agreeable resolution.
Moral: Don't overreact to mistakes. Also, due to different people's opinions, "there are many questions to which there is no clean cut yes or no."
