  • Ritchie's been giving lectures to the other children at school about human reproduction - fanciful stories that prompt his teacher to summon Rob and Laura to discuss the matter.

  • Ritchie's been giving lectures to the other children at school about human reproduction - fanciful stories that prompt his teacher to summon Rob and Laura to discuss the matter. After having a talk with Ritchie, the Petries feel they've handled the problem admirably and that no more tales will be told, but they soon hear of the lectures continuing. Finally Rob and Laura sit Ritchie down to find out what's up with him.

  • Rob, at the office, receives a frantic telephone call from Laura. It's because Ritchie's teacher, Miss Reshovsky, wants to see them. The reason?: Ritchie's been giving lectures to the other students about the facts of life. Miss Reshovsky doesn't want them to talk to Ritchie about it until she's had a chance to talk to them first. Miss Reshovsky and Dr. Gormsley, the school's guidance counselor, ultimately tell them that they are as concerned about the topic of Ritchie's lecture as they are about the specifics that he has been telling, which are no where near reality. Rob and Laura are dismayed to hear this news since Rob told Ritchie the truth when they had their discussion about the birds and the bees. But Rob eventually figures out from where Ritchie got his misinformation when Rob hears from Dr. Gormsley the stories Ritchie has been telling. Later, an uncomfortable Rob tries to be tactful yet straightforward in reconfirming the facts with Ritchie. Rob also tells him not to provide lectures anymore on what Rob has just told him. Ritchie agrees. So when Rob and Laura learn from Miss Reshovsky the next day that Ritchie has once again been lecturing on the same topic, and telling different but still untruths, Rob and Laura have to figure out why.
