I just saw this episode for the first time this evening. It was so hilarious! The basic gist of it is that the BSC is overbooked and Shannon is out of town, so they are in desperate need of some help. Alan Gray and Pete Black volunteer to fill in, with "disastrous" results. Some highlights:
* Kristy and Pete need to get a room. It's pretty blatant. Despite her poorly masked distain, Krisy totally looks like she's going to jump him any second now. (I can't say I blame her. TV Pete was kind of cute!) * Logan's fake southern accent has disappeared completely by this point. Apparently, New Jersey Daw's accent is contagious. * Speaking of Logan, for some reason, he and Mary Anne are "studying" in a remote part of the house, on a couch, alone, and Richard doesn't have a problem with that. * The boy sitters are a lot of fun, and the kids (Charlotte, Becca, and the Rodowsky boys) totally like them way better than the girls. * Alan taught Charlotte and Becca how to play poker using candy instead of money, and Stacey accuses the guys of teaching them to "gamble... with their health!" The girls in general are sanctimonious (shocking) and annoying. I can totally see why the kids like the boy sitters better. * It culminates with the BSC letting the boy sitters take five kids (the Rodowskys, even!) to a game center on a Saturday afternoon without any warning of how crazy it would be. Who's irresponsible now?
All in all, a pretty awesome episode. Was this in the books ever?
