Hitting below the belt doesn't pay!
Bobby's got a problem with bullies beating him up. When he comes to his dad for help, Hank tells him that he' not going to fight Bobby's fights for him anymore. He suggests he learn how to defend himself at the YMCA. Bobby ends up going down to the center but the only class available is the women's self defense course.
Bobby goes back to school the next day and is again confronted by the bullies. This time however, he uses his new defense training and kicks the lead bully in the nuts. Bobby gets detention, but he also establishes a fierce reputation for himself at school. When Hank finds out how Bobby has been defending himself, he realizes that he needs to teach Bobby to fight fair. They put on boxing gloves and go at it, but when Bobby gets hit in the nose, he kicks Hank in the balls. When he realizes that Hank is in no physical condition to punish him, Bobby disobeys his father until Peggy steps in. Bobby and Peggy get into a fight but Bobby's below the belt tactics don't work on her. She takes him down and reestablishes order in the house.
