Storyline

Bailey studies for a new job, as San Francisco tour guide. Now Kate has dumped Tom for him, they try to get her wealthy father Elliott Bishop's approval, but the conservative city official clearly disapproves of the not ruthlessly ambitious, rather free-spirited commoner orphan knave. Bailey's attempt to portray Charlie as ideal father figure backfires when the Nishops come dine in the restaurant. There part-time barman Charlie resists manager Joe's efforts to train him as assistant manager, a discussion complicated by financial problems dating back to father Salinger's supposedly exemplar management. The Salingers happily provide sanctuary to Julia's rowdyish classmate Peter 'P.K.' Strickler, whose face is bruised after more abuse from his impossible to please stepfather, but when his inexcusably 'blind' mother sends the police to retrieve the minor, the siblings have no choice then ask the victim to leave before social services break them up. Written by KGF Vissers
