Episode Summary

This episode of "‘Charles In Charge"' features Charles (Scott Baio) as a fireman, putting out fires all over the Powell household. Luckily Charles is studying for his philosophy exam, because the show provides several practical tests for Charles' own philosophy, and happily he doesn't do badly on them at all. First of all, Adam (Alexander Polinsky) is in the middle of a pre-teen imbroglio with his erstwhile best friend who is now his worst enemy. In trying to smooth those troubled waters, Charles ends up being challenged by the youngster's giant brother, Herman (Mark Venturini), who's ready to tear Charles apart. Then there's Sarah (Josie Davis), who needs some help because she's learning to like herself a little better, and that's not easy for a thirteen year old. And finally there's Buddy (Willie Aames), who's got a simple philosophy about everything. He's trying to get Charles to go out with one of the ultra Del Fluvio twins, Gina (Lisa Aliff), so he can go out with the other. How does it all work out? Well, don't worry too much, because after all, Charles is in Charge!moreless
