Hal and Lois heads off to a convention while the boys stays home for the babysitter. Malcolm, Reese and Dewey assumed it's just another old woman, their parents hired to watch them. They decide to do a series of pranks on their babysitter, which includes the covered up sewer tank with a blanket and a book for the old woman sit on. To their surprise, their babysitter is a hot, teen-aged girl named Patty. She is sweet to them, but also bitter because she was rejected by Francis, a long time ago, because she was obese. Now the boys compete against each other to see who will prove their eldest brother wrong in his rejection and sleep with her without sex. Meanwhile at the convention, Lois tries in vain to stop the fight between Hal and Jack, who stole his idea. Written by Anonymous

a baby sitter watches the kids while the parents are away
13 September 2006 | by (santa clarita, ca) – See all my reviews

a baby sitter who turns out extremely attractive watches the boys while Hal and Lois are away at a convention for his work. she is of course the perfect girl, and boys find themselves competing for her attention. Hal runs into an old adversary at the convention, and cant control himself. the baby sitter herself is still in love with her high school crush Francis. he doesn't exactly know how she turned out, but he is convinced however it is she ended up, she isn't for him. apparently Francis was the only nice person to her in high school, and she still holds a candle in her heart for him. can Lois get through the weekend without being totally embarrassed? can one of the boys win the hot babysitters heart? will Francis find out the girl who wants him, ended up being everyones dream girl?
