The Loan Arranger is the fifth episode of the second season of Charles in Charge. It originally aired on January 31, 1987.


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

Charles is not in charge. It is a normal fact of collegiate life that boys who are studying important things for their future, often end up studying less important things for their future, namely girls! And sometimes when those studies take precedence over the other things they should be studying, they get into trouble. In other words, Charles has been goofing off, his grades have dropped, and poof, there goes his student loan. What to do? Well, there are the necessary confrontations with Mr. Willard, the loan officer at the bank. First Mr. Willard turns down Charles, then he turns down Ellen who's trying to help by taking a loan for Charles. Meanwhile Jamie is making a home movie of the Pilgrims' first Thanksgiving, for a class project, with Buddy directing. "Gone With The Wind" it is not. But Walter becomes the star of the show when he comes up with Charles' loan, taken by his own ex-Naval type group, the John Paul Jones Society.
