The latest object of Dobie's affections is Gwyneth Krausmeyer. Unlike many girls he's tried to date in the past, Dobie may have a real chance with Gwyneth as she is a free spirit who despises the notion of material wealth and money, neither which Dobie has. She just longs to sit atop a quiet mountaintop and listen to the music of the stars. Although Herbert is somewhat suspicious of Dobie no longer asking him for money, it's Dobie's encounter with thirteen year old Chrissie Tyler and Chrissie's relationship with Gwyneth's younger sister Hermione that may threaten Dobie's relationship with Gwyneth. Chrissie is an entrepreneurial minded young man whose business venture seems like easy money to Dobie. While Gwyneth would like Dobie to use his position as a wiser elder to stop Chrissie from focusing so much on money, Dobie may fall back into old habits and use some business sense of his own to cash in on Chrissie's easy fortune.
