Gary and Val are brought to their new home by Gary's brother Bobby. They move into their new house and meet their new neighbors, Sid (Don Murray) and Karen Fairgate (Michele Lee). The Fairgate family hold a dinner party that is interrupted Sid's drunken daughter, Annie (Karen Allen). They also attend a house party which allowed Gary and Val to meet their other neighbors, Laura (Constance McCashin) and Richard Avery (John Pleshette); and Ginger (Kim Lankford) and Kenny Ward (James Houghton).
