  • Charles and Gwendolyn have a meaningless fight and he states that he has had enough of women, which is unfortunate because Lila is having a slumber party that night and Charles and Buddy will be responsible for a group of teenage girls.

    After a fight with Gwendolyn, Charles swears off women and Buddy loyally agrees with him. Unfortunately for poor Charles, his troubles occur on the same night that Lila is having a slumber party with several of her friends from school in attendance. Charles, however, is happy because it's his night off and therefore, Mrs. Pembroke is going to be responsible for the girls.

    Things don't quite go according to plan when Mrs. Pembroke is called away to urgently help a relative and with Stan and the boys already out of the house, Charles and Buddy are left to look after the giggling, squealing girls.

    During the course of the evening, the hapless young men are treated to stories of teenage crushes, romantic aspirations and displays of just what can be cooked up when a group of girls invade a kitchen!

    Unable to stand anymore, they head for the safety of Charles's bedroom, only to find it already occupied by Lila's friend Enid, a rather odd girl with a passion for horses.

    If you haven't seen this episode, then you should definitely watch it. Guest appearances by gymnast Julianne McNamara, Samantha Smith and Christina Applegate add to an hilarious piece of television comedy. It's great!
  • Charles and Gwendolyn have a fight causing Charles to swear off women for the night, only to find that Lila's having 8 of her friends over for a sleepover.

    Of the first season(which by the way is the only season I've seen) this episode is without a doubt my favorite. The fight between Charles and Gwendolyn may seem petty, but it's pettiness brings a lot of the comedy to this great episode. If you'll look closely you'll see a cameo by a young Christina Applegate playing one of Lila's friends.
    Enid and her horses are great as usual, the I never want to hear about women again part is just uproarious. The part with Harold Lempsky inspired me to make a new screen name. Like I classified it, this episode is a classic, from the truth game, to Harold Lempsky, to salads, and baking, Slumber Party is fantastic.
