Episode Summary

Sid's Pizza Parlor, that wondrous emporium that provides Charles (Scott Baio) a nourishing home away from home, in "Charles in Charge," is under attack. It seems the college owns the land the hang—out stands on, and they are reclaiming it for a parking lot. This means Charles' favorite meeting place for dates and other occasions is about to be banished, forever. Charles turns to his adoptive family, the Powells, for assistance. Jamie (Nicole Eggert) is studying amateur psychiatry and Sarah (Josie Davis) is studying amateur journalism for a school project, so they feel there is deeper meaning, and a lot of unrevealed facts to this whole dilemma. Buddy (Willie Aames) thinks it's a plot, but he's not sure whose. Walter Powell (James Callahan) thinks they all ought to improve their diet by eating on board ship. . . any ship. So in true motherly fashion, Ellen Powell gets out the placards and begins writing protest legends on them. Charles being Charles, however, confronts the head of the board, Mr. Bartlett, played in snarling brilliance by James Karen, at the pizza parlor. In true Charles fashion, the truth comes out, and Charles saves the day and saves Sid's. The laughs always have a bite in them when it's "Charles In Charge."moreless
