Everyone at the bar is questioning Sam and Rebecca's want to have a baby. Some are dismayed that they have decided to take this measure out of wedlock, while others doubt the ultimate parenting skills that either Sam or Rebecca possess, or as is the case may be don't possess. To address the latter, Lilith suggests that Sam and Rebecca should have an evening alone babysitting someone else's child. Without Frederick available for the job, Rebecca decides she and Sam should give themselves the ultimate test: looking after Carla's seven kids (the eldest Anthony, won't be around as he's serving time) for one evening.

Babysitters' Club
7 September 2019 | by HitchcocSee all my reviews

When the guys at the bar give Sam and Rebecca a bad time about their potential parenting skills, it is decided they will babysit Carla's kids for a night. This is a terrifying prospect. These kids are quite challenging and the evening is amazingly hard. Also, check out Cliff's video-recorder and all that happens with it.
