Five siblings are left alone all summer when their mom leaves town and the evil babysitter bites the dust.

The two groundskeepers for the cemetery stand over the Babysitters grave and comment how nice it was for her to leave them the money. The tombstone reads "Nice Old Lady inside who died of natural causes".
