[Charles finds Douglas at work with a skateboard]
... Doug, do you need help tightening those wheels?
I'm not tightening them; I'm loosening them.
That's very dangerous!
I hope so; this is Jason's skateboard. He used my baseball glove to clean his fish tank! He's gotta be taught a lesson.
[confiscating the skateboard]
That's not a crime punishable by death.

Not terribly bad, but I liked it best with the first family.
Yes, I am probably in the minority, but I did enjoy the first family a lot more than the second family in this show. Other than that it was a rather mediocre show that had its moments, but was really nothing special especially since the first family to me seemed more real, while the second seemed to be a little to much like the perfect sitcom family type. It also seemed strange that the second family would even want Charles in their home seeing as how they never met him in the first place. Still, the show had a few laughs with the second family and was not all bad. The two principle characters from the first season returned as Scott Baio and Willie Ames from the rather funny film "Zapped" are buddies going to school and Charles kind of watches after the kids while having a place to stay. So it is kind of like "The Nanny" or a "Mr. Belvedere" only in this one it is less of a professional and more of just a guy going to college. Of course there are wacky things going on as one would expect from a sitcom of this era as there are problems with the kids and problems with school and that sort of thing. So basically a sitcom that started strong, but with the change of families became more bland.
