Wendy and Zachary decide to form a club to help their neighbors and come up with the name Angel's Inc. Their first mission is to help an old woman across the street. The do just that, but it turns out she didn't actually want to cross the road. Then they paint a neighbor's shed--a horrid color. Their next good deed is to watch Mrs. Haddock's dog while she goes shopping for a cake. But again disaster strikes when the dog is chased by a Doberman. The two "angels" return a very muddy dog to Mrs. Haddock who ends up getting her dress all muddy and droping the cake. Wendy suggests that their next mission be to mow Mrs. Creech's front yard, and Zach reluctantly agrees. While mowing, they notice a suspicious looking man and woman snooping around the garage. They turn out to be thieves, and with the help of Mr. Beale and the police they are arrested. Then Mr. Beale asks if they want to paint his shed, because someone has painted it a horrid color red!
