Storyline

Chatsworth Osborne, Jr. enlists Maynard and Dunky's help to raise money for a needy family in town. Using a wishing well, Maynard is able to collect much money. However, when Dobie finds out what Maynard is doing, he becomes suspicious of Chatsworth's motivations. They find out that Chatsworth indeed wants money for a penniless family, but they are shocked to learn that that needy family is none other than his own, the Osbornes who have just lost their net worth of $30 million. Incensed, Herbert insists the Osbornes pay back the $16 he donated to the wishing well. The Osbornes pay it back in the only way they can: to work as domestics for the Gillises for two days. But having servants in the form of Clarice Osborne and Chatsworth Osborne, Jr. may be more trouble than $16 worth. Written by Huggo
