Storyline

Going through the bills, Alan panics because Charlie hasn't had a jingle commission in months and admits that business is slow and may not change. Therefore Alan accepts $1,000 a week as a test person for an experimental drug, despite a terrible list of side effects, and soon finds he's not in the control group. Charlie however keeps spending, especially on his latest girlfriend, Linda Harris. Linda brings along her adolescent son Brandon, who proves quite a handful when he agrees to babysit. Charlie's child skills surprise everyone as he pours his artists creativity into the job, such as musical tunes to make the boy eat his food. Written by KGF Vissers
