Episode Summary

ELLEN's (Sandra Kerns) attractive, married cousin JOAN ROBINSON (Kay Lenz) comes to visit and puts the whammy on CHARLES (Scott Baio). She is very direct about what she wants and she wants CHARLES. Unfortunately, WALTER (James Callahan) 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 (Willie Aames) achieves hero status when he saves PAULA THACKERY (Julianne McNamara) from a crazed watergunner. Along with hero status, however, comes hero worship, which he isn't ready for from the young high schooler. So while CHARLES has a problem with an older woman, BUDDY has trouble with a younger one. BUDDY is more than willing to trade.moreless
