The following plot was taken from Feel free to expand it!

No matter how hard Charles and Buddy try, between them they do not have enough cash to even think about going out on dates. There has to be a way for them to make some extra spending money. Buddy's idea of finding household helpers and training them, then placing them for a small fee may be the answer to their cash shortage. Buddy and Charles set up appointments with prospects from their college, and Stan and Jill give them permission to hold the interviews at the house. After some exhausting screening of a number of prospects, they decide on Megan Harper. They even give her the "torture test", which she passes. Charles can honestly recommend her to the Wilson's for the live-in helper's job. After he offers Megan his congratulations, he tells Buddy that Megan will be the only graduate from Charles ‘R' Us school. No amount of money could pay them for the ‘torture test' they had to pass. Buddy gets the honor to walk Megan over to the Wilson house where she receives their approval as well.
