  • Episode Description
  • When well-liked George becomes the first guy to be promoted from the assembly line to plant manager at a Los Angeles airplane parts factory, his life becomes a little more complicated. His pal Ernie and former compadres on the plant floor tease him about joining management. George's first test in the new position is to terminate one employee. He must choose either his acerbic line-inspector mother, Benny, or Ernie. George's hardworking and patient wife, Angie, copes with Benny's constant wisecracks and cares for the couple's kids, precocious 9-year-old Max and 13-year-old Carmen, who is dealing with the traumas of being a teenager.moreless

    • Ernie: Remember what we used to say about Mr.Clipboard? George: Yeah, that if he didn't stop bugging us we'd take him to the parking lot and beat the crap out of him. But now that I'm manager, oh my God, that just seems so ghetto!

    • George: This isn't going to be easy for any of us Angie! I have to fire my own mom! "Hey mom, dump your crap in this box and follow the guy with the bad job. I love you!"
