The trunk up means good luck (?)
Job requirement: twin maids who are unflappable.
"We have to rescue them!"
The calm before the storm.
"HA-RU-HI! Daddy's come to save you!"
"Why don't you call me Misuzui-chi?"
Kyoya explains, yet again.
"She's a model employee, really."
Tamaki learns that each Host offered Haruhi a vacation.
"Togetherness is our guiding principle."
And she has a cellphone...
...with a Friends & Family plan.
"But wait -- I'm your daddy and buddy.
"According to the handbook, jobs are prohibited."
And so... the Host Club invades Haruhi's summer escape.
In Tamaki's delusions, Haruhi pays him a special visit.
With only one vacant room, Tamaki offers to take it.
"Have you no feeling of loyalty?"
The twins suggest a "Guest Relations Odd-Jobs Contest."
Misuzu thinks it's a wonderful idea...
...with the prize being the vacant guestroom.
"No complaining. Three point deduction."
...but not what Misuzu considers refreshing.
"So what's a refresher point?"
Misuzu reveals an interesting definition...
...reminding Haruhi of someone else.
Every Host has a local abode...
"So who's your favorite to win?"
"It's easy enough to tell at a glance."
"Then again, it seems we have a dark horse."
Mori being refreshingly manly...
...but out of the running if Honey is eliminated.
Tamaki is refreshing in looks...
...but an epic fail at odd jobs.
Kyoya won't compete, but he will help his best friend.
Twins being refreshingly charming...
...Tamaki shines with refreshing talent.
A vase tumbles from a window ledge...
...and Kaoru saves Haruhi.
...and Hikaru's devotion is revealed.
"At least we didn't have to resort to the quarrelling brothers act."
Tamaki reclaims Top Host status with charm and a new Host manual.
His new rules require a 6:30 am wake-up call, which might not work for Honey...
Arai Produce's delivery boy arrives.
"Working boy, eh? How refreshing!"
