Plot synopsis

Greg Warner (Clark) is a motion picture executive and Kim Warner (Kelly) is a stay-at-home mother to Sam and later Emily. Kim's sister Christine Hughes (Snyder) and her husband Jimmy Hughes (O'Malley) along with their two sons, Dominic (Joel Homan) and Logan (Brendon Baerg), live in the Warners' guest house, where the family's easygoing approach to life in general contrasted with the more uptight and fussy demeanor of Greg. The plots revolved around child rearing, work (especially after Greg got Jimmy a job as the movie studio's security guard), and sex, and often involved various combinations of the four plotting against the others.

Late in the fifth season, the Hughes family finally earned enough money to move out of the guest house and buy the house next door, though they put a Mustang on blocks in the front yard. Meanwhile, Greg quits his job following his company's takeover by a new corporation and the firing of his boss, the overbearing but decent Mr. Savitsky.

After Greg is unable to find new work and toxic mold is discovered in their home, the Warners are forced to move in with the Hughes family early in the sixth season. Eventually, Savitsky latches onto a Japanese movie studio and rehires Greg, and the Warners are able to move back into their home. In the final scene of the series, an earthquake strikes Los Angeles; the Warners' home receives minimal damage, but the Hughes family is apparently not so lucky, as they show up at the Warners' front door asking if the guest house is still available.
