Mike and Debi, a bright young couple, move in next door to Doug and Carrie. The Heffernans dont make the greatest first impression as an argument theyre having can be heard throughout the neighborhood. Carrie feels that her job, as a legal secretary, and Dougs, as a truck driver, are insignificant next to her neighbors, who both hold professional jobs. She tries desperately to make a good impression on her new neighbors by inviting them over for dinner, but Doug thwarts her plan. Meanwhile, Arthur takes advantage of Spences job at the subway by insisting on free rides.
