WHEN YET ANOTHER HOUSEKEEPER QUITS, NICK SAVAGE DECIDES - TO THE BOYS'
STUNNED HORROR - THAT IT'S TIME THEY LEARNED TO LOOK AFTER THEMSELVES,
ON ABC'S "COMPLETE SAVAGES"
"Pilot" -- The Savage family discovers that yet another housekeeper has quit and, while the boys see this as their dad's opportunity to hire a cute French maid, Nick decides it's time his boys learn how to take care of themselves. Stunned, the boys decide that they need a plan to change their dad's mind. With Jack at the helm, they quickly formulate a strategy that includes not lifting a finger or cleaning anything. But, as a seasoned veteran of their tactics, Nick puts on his best poker face, plugs his nose and enters the stink-ridden stand-off.
