Charles has to visit in town when his folks arrive for the weekend, so Buddy is placed in charge of the Powell kids. Charles convinces Ellen that it's okay but Walter has some serious misgivings, and maybe rightly so. Buddy has some other motives in trying to fill Charles' shoes. He's out to impress a current girlfriend, Debbie, with his child—rearing abilities. It results in cataclysmic confrontations between Buddy and the three Powell youngsters, in fact it gets so bad that Adam runs away. But in the end, things go well, Charles returns and the three Powell children, especially Adam, find out Buddy is a pretty terrific guy after all.
