Alvin and Dave in Like Father Like Son

Dave in Alvin's bed

Alvin is tired of being treated like a kid and trades places with Dave for a day to feel what it is like to be a grown-up. Alvin has a fantasy of telling everyone what to do, taking a trip to the zoo and rescuing people from a wild animal, then wowing pretty girls. The reality of being an adult is far different, with multiple monotonous jobs while Dave and his brothers run around like wild Indians. When night comes, Alvin orders everyone to bed, but Dave reminds him the head of the household is not to go to bed until everything is secure. The following morning, everyone is pooped, save for Dave, whom is in the treehouse talking to himself that this role reversal is great, as Alvin has learned the hard way the responsibility of being a patriarch. A water main suddenly bursts (as Alvin hastily did the wrong thing to fix a leaky faucet to get to bed), but Dave, now taking back his role as leader, quickly fixes it.
