Episode Summary

Charles (SCOTT BAIO) becomes frantic when he makes too many commitments for one evening. Having promised to speak to Sarah's (JOSIE DAVIS) class, chaperone Jamie's (NICOLE EGGERT) birthday party and go out with Julie Fletcher (COURTNEY GEBHART) , Charles seeks Buddy's (WILLIE AAMES) help in order to successfully proceed with all three activities. Together, Buddy and Charles strategically schedule the events of the evening, arranging just enough time for everything. As the plan takes form, all seems under control, but shortly the chaos begins. Charles' speech is postponed; Jamie's party starts early, and Julie becomes impatient and curious about why she has to wait with Buddy. The hilarious antics that occur confuse everyone, but Charles finally solves the problems by sending Sarah's class, Jamie's party and Buddy to the pizza parlor, while he and Julie stay home.moreless
