2x7: Buddy Comes to Dinner recap: As if things weren't difficult enough for Charles with the Powell family needing all the tender loving care he can muster, he's not ready for an extended visit from his pal Buddy. In this episode Buddy comes for dinner, wrenches his ankles, and has to stay in Charles' room for a few days. With almost anyone else that would be a minor imposition, but with Buddy it's a major emergency. What really aggravates the situation is that Charles is about to have a date with Lauren Andrews, a girl who could easily become that "'someone special" in Charles" life. To make matters even worse Lauren can't stand Buddy. And there's Buddy, getting in the way, when Charles would rather be alone. But there's a catch - Lauren is starring in the school play with Buddy and she confides to Charles that she hopes Buddy stays sick forever so he will be replaced. This is tough for Charles, because after all Lauren is beautiful, but the play means the world to Buddy. And Buddy is Charles' best friend. It's another sticky problem for Charles to untangle, but he does it, and he always does what he thinks is right... read more.
