Season 2 - Episode 26

Ellen's attractive, married cousin Joan Robinson (Kay Lenz) comes to visit and puts the whammy on Charles. She is very direct about what she wants and she wants Charles. Unfortunately, Walter finds them together in the living room in the middle of the night and comes down hard on Charles. It makes it difficult when Mrs. Robinson won't take "no" for an answer and puts Charles' job in jeopardy. While Charles is trying to work out the limits of an "off-limits" relationship, Buddy achieves hero status when he saves Paula Thackery (Julianne McNamara) from a crazed water gunner. Along with hero status, however, comes hero worship, which he isn't ready for from the young high schooner. So while Charles has a problem with an older woman, Buddy has trouble with a younger one. Buddy is more than willing to trade.

You see Jamie wants Sarah's video camera, and Adam wants his term paper typed, and Grandpa Powell wants his car washed, and Mrs. Powell needs Charles for an extra night of baby-sitting, and . . . you get the idea.

Adam thinks he's seen a UFO outside his window and his sisters are convinced they've seen an alien in the kitchen. Walter will have none of it and directs Charles to rid the children of such superstitious nonsense (which he says comes from "fuzzy thinking"), but when Charles sees a UFO too, he doesn't know what to believe. Then Walter sees one and becomes an instant convert, calling the local news crew to come out for an interview. In the meantime, Charles is so distraught that he even asks Buddy for advice. He accidentally finds out that the topic of Buddy's psychology term paper required the simulation of a UFO experience in a typical American household. Though Charles is angry, he is grateful that one mystery is solved. Later the kids find a guinea pig in the dryer - their "alien" - and another mystery is solved. There is one left...

But lo and behold, Rebecca does more than study art; she poses nude for the class. Charles is stunned, and so is little Adam who happened to go along with Charles to the class for the "cultural advantages." Now there's trouble with Ellen Powell , over Adam's early exposure to nudity, as well as trouble from Rebecca who thinks Charles was only out to ogle her fair white body.

About Me

I am Sophie and this is my website.

A little about me ๐Ÿ‘‹ I am a marketing student in Paris. I love spending afternoons with friends in a cafe or a park.

But more than anything else, I love watching (.. bingingโ€ฆ) series on my computer on rainy Sundays or any sunny day for that matter ๐Ÿ™ˆ

I must have watched hundreds of shows by now, from romance to science-fiction series. Often I like to go back to a show I enjoyed. But I donโ€™t feel like watching it all over againโ€ฆ

I created this website so myself and others could find the best episodes of our favourite shows. As of today, I have about 1,000 shows on the website with votes and rating coming from fans.

Hopefully, you can join me from your sofa and enjoy some nice TV!
