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

The Wilsons would like to hire a young lady to take care of their children. Jill suggests that she spend some time with Charles to see if she's up to it. Much to Charles' embarrassment, Megan Harper turns out to be a very pretty girl who has heard many great things about him. The kids do not usually manage to get into big fights. But because Megan believes that they should settle their differences their own way, things get completely out of hand. This time their fight escalates into clothes swiping, chemical warfare and mental torture. All this action is being audio taped by Lila who has a very important school assignment. When Mr. and Mrs. Pembroke return from their trip, they find Megan in the kitchen, thinking. She realizes that children are capable of much more than she ever dreamed possible and that a "normal job" would probably be a better idea.
