Sam agrees to babysit Frederick Crane, but he goes through hell when the event happens. It all starts with the little guy locking himself in the bathroom, leading to a series of really harsh results. Kelly needs work experience so Rebecca is talked into giving her a job. The barflies cause all kinds of problems. Norm is a complete jerk. He tricks Kelly into erasing is bar tabs. In just about every case the characters show their greedy, manipulative sides.
