Charles is supposed to take Ellen to a play as a favor to her, but if he does no one will be home to take care of the kids. Normally Walter would be home to watch the kids, but he also has a date, only he ain't telling. Meanwhile, Sarah wants to go to a movie with her favorite boy-classmate, but her mom won't let her date until she's 14. But it isn't a date, Sarah says, it's just a movie. Neither is Walter's date a date, nor Charles', or maybe in fact, anybody's. In the Powell family, dating is so out, it's in. Charles is resourceful, though, so he resorts to reverse psychology, as practiced by Buddy.
