In the process, Sam has an unfortunate game of 'musical chairs' with Frederick, the 'chairs' being the playroom, the bathroom, the window ledge outside the playroom and bathroom, the tree outside the playroom, and the ground way, way below.

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.
