1. This Male Chauvinist Pigg

As part of a school experiment, the guys are learning to cook and sew, while the girls study self-defense and shot. So at home, when Keith half-teasingly states that women are inferior, Laurie proposes a contest: she has to fix a flat tire and Keith must bake buttermilk pancakes. Keith's pancakes are a disaster. He suggests another contest where he must create a spinach souffl? and Laurie must fix gapping spark plugs. Again, Laurie wins. The next day she announces the results to all the kids and the word gets around to Goose Walrath - the school killer. He viscously insults Keith about having lost to a girl, and is about to sock him in the jaw when Laurie grabs Goose's arm and flops him over her hip. Everyone is amazed, especially Laurie, and the only one more humiliated than Keith is Goose.

Besides awful roads and bad diner food, the group loses all their money. While still heading for Sacramento, the bus is stopped by Deputy Haynie for speeding. Shirley refuses to pay the ticket because she believes it was a speed trap. Haynie hauls the family off to see Judge McElwreath, a man who is as crooked as the deputy!

He wants to commit suicide because after breaking all convention by proposing to his girlfriend Penny, she has the audacity to hang up on him. When Shirley realizes that Snake's proposal took place over the phone, she patiently explains to him that a marriage proposal, being the most important event in a girl's life, should not take place over a telephone. She suggests that he dress in a tie and jacket and go to propose in person. But Penny again refuses, for she feels that Snake is making fun of her by having donned such fancy clothes.
