Charles is offered a job during spring break to work at the reservations desk at a resort hotel in Hawaii managed by his professor's brother. When Charles realizes that he cannot accept the job because of his obligations to the Powell family, he asks Buddy if he is interested. Buddy is otherwise committed, but offers it to his cousin Dudley, who accepts. In the meantime, the Powells decide that Charles needs to get away and encourage him to accept the job. Charles does so, not realizing that Dudley has too.
