Storyline

Bailey is delighted that a Mr. Wiliams founded a college scholarship at his high-school and personally picked him as first benefactor a four time $10,000 annually. Yethe doesn't trust it, especially after elaborate questions about his mother during the dinner to meet his benefactor. Then he finds out Williams is an alias for his maternal grandfather Jack Gordon and confronts him. The man admits, but refuses to have anything to do with his four siblings. Catering for glamorous TV producer Kathleen Ishley's birthday party gets Charlie her generous favors, but he keeps her at distance for boring Emily until she makes a scene about waiting for it. Justin offers to help hopeless Julia with programming, but she immediately assumes malice and prefers a tutor. Computer nerd Miller West volunteers, but prefers payment of a more romantic kind, to improve his social position. Written by KGF Vissers
