Title Season # Series #
"Are You Being Observed?" 1 423

Kelly deals with the news that she has a half-brother she never knew about; the eccentric recluse Charlie. Kelly persuades Charlie to become a janitor at the club to work on his social skills, but gets more than she bargained for when it becomes apparent that years of being excluded from the Kingsley family have left him somewhat unhinged. In the meantime, Maris has shelved her retirement plans but sets out to make cutbacks nonetheless. Svetlana is upset to learn the hire shop will be closing as the majority of members bring their own set of clubs, so Yuri tries prove this isn't always the case—by swiping every set he comes across. Elsewhere, Hester tries to cheer David up when his parents inform him that they are unable to afford his med school fees; while Misty comforts Rex as Lisa and Flynn prepare to leave Washington in order to move closer to their foster child.

  • Hester Crane and Charlie Kingsley become main characters.
"The Education of Charlie Kingsley" 2 424

When Kelly's efforts to integrate Charlie into society go awry, she asks Yuri and Rex to befriend him and make him feel like one of the guys. Yuri and Rex agree to take him to a bar they frequent after work. In the meantime, David is upset to learn he wasn't invited and begins analysing every aspect of his personality. Hester marches over to the bar to confront the guys and learns that they didn't ask him because he exclusively drinks Chardonnay, which the place doesn't serve. When Hester gets introduced to Charlie, Charlie cluelessly hands her a drink. As a result, the guys get arrested for giving alcohol to a minor, and an unwitting Kelly must come to their rescue. Elsewhere, Svetlana earns Misty's praise when she makes creative use of an old storage closet to build a much-requested employee lounge.

David persuades Kelly to give him a job as a guidance counsellor, operating out of the employee lounge. Elsewhere, Yuri and Svetlana are at odds over Svetlana's desire to keep working and Yuri's dream of having a housewife; Misty is feeling emotionally unstable after she inherits some money from her mother; and Charlie is having trouble controlling his intense hatred for the stuffed-shirt club members. Their predicaments result in them seeking out David for therapy, leaving him feeling uncomfortable when he discovers several sides to his friends that he never wanted to know. In the meantime, Hester and Rex draw up a business arrangement when Hester helps Rex remove the front desk of loitering teens.

"Heiress Apparent" 4 426

Kelly invites Charlie to a dinner party Maris is hosting so she can introduce him. Complications arise on the evening when Alexander unexpectedly shows up alongside his much younger new wife, hotel heiress Shirley Ryland. As a result, Maris is in no mood to make nice with Charlie, leaving him feeling rejected once again and spurring Kelly to confront her father about his treatment of Charlie. Meanwhile, Rex is left in charge of the club and deals with an unexpected visitor from a businessman, leading Misty to conclude that he is valuing Bear Creek for a potential sale. When they hear that a hotel heiress is attending Maris' dinner party, the panicked servants crash the event in the hopes of convincing her to buy the place. In actuality, the man is a loan officer meeting with David, who is busy in the employee lounge counselling a waiter with a crippling fear of water, leaving Hester to relay the news.

"Yuri Petrov's Day Off" 5 427

When Yuri comes down with the flu, Svetlana offers to fill in for him in order to prepare things for a high-profile visit from an Argentinian golf pro. Svetlana proves herself as a competent manager and invokes Yuri's jealousy when David stops by and mentions how well she is doing. Worried he is being usurped, Yuri heads to the club in a slightly delirious state but becomes lucid shortly after and ducks into the garage to avoid embarrassment. He meets the seldom-seen club's mechanic Vince, who helps him to rediscover his love of fixing vehicles. Yuri then decides he wants to be a mechanic again just as his delirium returns, prompting him to rush to the driveway to tell Svetlana just as the golf pro arrives—and then sneeze all over him. As a result, Svetlana must prevent a diplomatic incident from taking place when the golf pro misinterprets Yuri's act as a slight against Argentina.

"Prigmalian" 6 428

Misty is shocked to learn that a stipulation in her mother's will requires her to be married before she can receive her inheritance. With the recent cutbacks looming over her, Misty is determined to access the money and promises a substantial cut to anyone who will fake-marry her. Further examination of the will also reveals that, should Misty get a divorce, 99.9% of the money will go to her husband to dissuade her from marrying for the wrong reasons. Although Misty believes any of her friends would be happy to sign the money over to her after the divorce, selecting someone she can trust to do so proves more challenging than she expected, especially when several of them start selfishly angling for the responsibility. Meanwhile, Hester tries to mould Charlie into the perfect potential husband for Misty in the hopes of acquiring the latest games console.

"Kelly of the Beast" 7 429

Kelly asks the staff to dress up for Halloween as part of an initiative to make the club more appealing to families. Yuri and Svetlana are eager to take Eduard trick-or-treating for the first time and stop by the club in the midst of its Halloween party. A major offence winds up taking place when they mistake Kelly for Maris after she answers the door wearing a devil costume. Mortified, Kelly retreats to the basement where she stumbles upon Charlie, who is boycotting Halloween due to never being able to celebrate it as a child. After finding a circuit board, some old props and a theremin, Kelly and Charlie have fun getting their own back on the guests by making the club appear haunted.

"Grandstand and Deliver" 8 430

Svetlana is despondent as the hire shop nears closure and decides to stage a protest, but struggles to find a hook. When Hester tells her that she is one of the few girls at her school to have a job and not be pregnant, Svetlana makes her the focus of the protest with the claim that the hire shop and other places like it stabilises the lives of troubled teens. Svetlana gets more than she bargained for when Maris reconsiders the closure of the shop and brings in a group of rough inner-city teenage girls to straighten themselves out by getting jobs there. Meanwhile, David has trouble sticking to his confidentiality oath when Misty confesses that she and Rex secretly got married in the aftermath of the will debacle and are now having a great time spending the inheritance.

While Yuri revels in being a mechanic again, Kelly isn't so happy as it means her management duties will be increased while she interviews potential replacements. However, unexpected salvation arrives in the form of the charming Josiah, who impresses a sleep deprived Kelly with his business acumen and persuades her to hire him for the role. Kelly gets more than she bargained for when Josiah slips out of sight along with the entire contents of the equipment shed, leaving Yuri overcome with guilt for putting her in this position. Meanwhile, Hester is concerned about the hire shop's lax security and tries to dress it up to make it appear as if it's well protected.

When Maris announces that Antiques Roadshow will be coming to the club, she enlists the staff to inventory her antiques.

At the same time, the gang take the opportunity to have some of their belongings appraised; Rex has purchased a wedding ring for Misty to wear at home but their secret comes under threat when they get placed in front of the cameras.

Kelly stops by the golf course later in the day and is disheartened to find that Gregory and his friends have been paying Charlie to make a fool of himself performing dangerous stunts and eating gross items. As a result, Kelly becomes determined to teach them a lesson but Charlie, perfectly content with what he is doing and feeling he is getting the better end of the deal, is irked by her interference and sets out to prove that he can stand on his own two feet.

After she tells Yuri that Svetlana has been mouthing off about his career choices, an incensed Yuri confronts his wife, and Hester is overcome with guilt when the argument culminates in their separation. As it turns out, David had his sister pegged from the start and convinced Yuri and Svetlana to stage the separation to teach her not to mess with people's emotions.

Rex and Misty are continuing to snipe at each other, and Rex is determined to prove that he can be fun when Misty baulks at the likelihood of him taking part in the routine. Rex soon realises he is unable to dance, so Svetlana agrees to join him in some lessons at a local community centre. Jealousy consequently consumes Yuri and Misty, who decide to go undercover in the class to make sure nothing untoward happens.

Svetlana feels more energetic without her usual lunchtime carbo-load, but Yuri finds it exhausting to live with and joins Misty as she launches a black market for starchy foods. In the meantime, the enforced diet prompts David to become a health hut and start performing jumping jacks in the employee lounge, causing him to butt heads with Charlie, who likes to partake in naps during the afternoon.

"Schmooze Control" 16 438

Rex is left in charge of the annual safety inspection when Maris goes out of town with Kelly. To his surprise, the club fails to pass the inspection and Rex realises it's because he is unable to schmooze government officials as effectively as Maris.

The safety inspector agrees to review Bear Creek again as Rex prepares to harness everything he's learnt from Hester. David is dismayed by the revelation that Hester isn't taking school seriously and considers sending her back to Niles and Daphne, feeling that he has failed in his duty to be a responsible role model for his sister.

Misty reluctantly agrees to get rid of the rifle, but her ranting in the employee lounge leads to a debate in the club over the staff's right to keep and bear arms. Misty is pleased to gain supporters but gets more than she bargained for when they decide to bail the intruder out and lure him back to the club to demonstrate how risky it is not to let anyone defend it with guns.
