AMITYVILLE  

Charles  returns  from  a  jaunty  two-week  hiking  vacation  only  to  discover             the  Pembrokes  leaving  immediately  for  Seattle  and  an  entirely  new  family,         the  Powells,  currently  subletting  their  home.  Frantically  urged  by  Buddy                to  get  an  off-campus  apartment,  he  must  decide  this  personal  quandary        about  whether  or  not  to  continue  staying  on  and  helping  around  the  house  with  the  kids.

THE   LOAN   ARRANGER  

Charles  finds  himself  compelled  by  government  budget  cuts  to  apply  for              a  necessary  student  loan  from  an  irascible  bank  officer  ( Ben  Stein )  who  mercilessly  rejects  his  scholarship  qualifications.  However,  a  valiant  and  kind  benefactor  unexpectedly  provides  him  with  timely  economic  deliverance  from  academic  jeopardy.

TRADE   OFF 

Charles  keenly  implements  the  original  rules  of  bartering  written  in  his                term  paper  by  convincing  Sarah  to  type  her  brother’s  homework  assignment,      Jamie  to  lend  her  younger  sister  a  video  camera,  Walter  to  loan  his  eldest  granddaughter  a  navy  jacket,  and  Adam  to  wash  the  family  car.  But  this  situation  descends  into  farce  thanks  to  Buddy’s  questionable  procurement  of  concert  tickets  in  exchange  for  babysitting  the  university  mascot.

A  DATE   FROM   HECK   

Charles  plans  an  idyllic  home-cooked  dinner  with  a  beautiful  foreign  exchange  student,  asking  Buddy  to  take  the  Powells  out  for  a  musical  concert,  but  he  is  ultimately  surprised  to  learn  that  the  voluptuous  nymph  will  also  be  joined  by  her  grim  father  ( Kenneth  Mars )  and  other  queerly  bizarre  kinfolks  on  their  romantic  date.

MOMMA   MIA !  

Charles  is  visited  by  his  ebullient  mother  Lillian  ( Ellen  Travolta )  who  regales       the  Powell  brood  with  jovial  narrations  about  the  quirky  misadventures  of        her  own  cute  little  “doodlebug”.  But  when  a  party  invitation  turns  up,                  he  agrees  to  let  her  take  care  of  Jamie,  Sarah  and  Adam  who  knowingly        trick  his  mom  into  going  out  with  them  and  seeing  a  violent  horror  flick  that  they’ve  been  strictly  forbidden  to  watch.

WEEKEND   WEARY  

Charles  suffers  from  mental  exhaustion  and  takes  the  weekend  off  upon         Ellen’s  compassionate  insistence  while  Buddy  prepares  to  accompany  him  on       a  relaxing  beach  junket.  But  when  Jamie,  Sarah  and  Adam  desperately  seek       his  help  because  an  outsider  absconded  with  their  grandfather’s  war  medallions  during  a  frenetic  yard  sale,  he  must  lead  them  in  negotiating  for  the  quick  recovery  of  Walter’s  valuable  military  keepsakes.

U .  F .  OH  ,  NO  ! 

Charles  tries  to  quell  the  fears  of  Jamie,  Sarah  and  Adam  who  believe               a  ghostly  alien  is  lurking  in  the  darkness  and  haunting  them  at  night                 but  then  he  and  Walter  are  also  virtually  jolted  by  their  own  kaleidoscopic  paranormal  encounters  after  which  he  inevitably  comes  across  the  real          source  of  these  unearthly  manifestations.

THE   CASE   OF   THE   MOCK  TURTLE   MYSTERY  

Charles  defends  Adam  in  a  mock  trial  judged  by  Walter  because                            the  youngster  is  accused  of  unintentionally  killing  Sarah’s  favorite  pet  turtle  when  he  negligently  left  open  their  backyard  gate  through  which  the  small  reptile  could  have  quietly  escaped  and  mysteriously  vanished  without  a  trace.

A   JOB   FROM   HECK  

Charles  suggest  to  Ellen  that  Jamie  be  allowed  to  look  for  a  part-time  job         so  the  young  girl  can  keep  up  and  maintain  her  expensive  fashion  tastes           but  she  ironically  volunteers  to  get  paid  as  a  newbie  waitress  at  Sid’s        Pizza  Parlor,  his  quintessential  dating  hangout  which  is  later  revealed  to       have  also  undergone  a  startling  change  in  business  ownership.

BABY   DOLL 

Charles  and  Buddy  scheme  to  help  promote  the  grand  opening  of  Lillian’s        newly  financed  restaurant  venture  when  they  disastrously  lose  an  important  check  for  a  key  sum  of  money,  quixotically  oblivious  to  the  unwavering  efforts  of  Jamie  and  Sarah  trying  their  best  to  assist  them  by  introducing  three  highly  talented  friends  who  are  members  of  a  jazzy  neophyte  singing  group.

TWICE   UPON   A   TIME ,  Part   1   and   Part   2   

Charles  is  jealously  bewitched,  bothered  and  bewildered  by  the  unanticipated  reappearance  of  his  first  love,  the  captivating  Gwendolyn  Pierce  ( Jennifer  Runyon ),  who  naively  accepts  his  impulsive  marriage  proposal  but  thereafter  vaguely  hesitates  and  ostensibly  delays  the  formal  announcement  of  their  engagement,  which  kindles  his  quiescent  suspicion  that  she  may  not  be  genuinely  ready  to  commit.

THE   UNDERGRADUATE  

Charles  faces  erotic  temptation  in  the  devilish  guise  of  Ellen’s  visiting  married  cousin  ( Kay  Lenz ),  a  lusty  older  seductress  who  naughtily  sets  her  kinky  sights  on  his  virile  young  body,  unabashedly  offers  him  an  indecent  proposal,  and  just  simply  won’t  accept  his  qualm-filled  rejections.
