  • Episode Description
  • Jack and Carly are newlyweds anxious to prove to themselves and to the world that they can make their marriage work. She's running a fledgling catering business and has been married twice before--to Dante, a blue-collar would-be musician with whom she had a son, high-school freshman Will; and also to Sheldon, a rich businessman who is the father of her younger daughter, Sarah, 11. Jack is a schoolteacher who has an about-to-turn 16 year-old-daughter, Nicole, and is divorced from her mother, TV actress Stephanie. The "blended" family has been living in their new Manahattan apartment two weeks, and while Jack and Carly are wildly in love, the kids are getting testy. Nicole and Sarah are both chafing about having to share a room, and Will is infatuated with his beautiful stepsister, as evidenced by him "accidentally" walking in on her in the bathroom. Now Sheldon enters the picture saying he thinks it would be best if Sarah came to live with him. Carly asks for two weeks to see how things work out. But Sheldon crosses her up and asks Sarah if she'd like to live with him. Jack gathers the family together and asks them to make the effort to stay together. They agree.moreless

    • The opening title sequence used for the first fourteen episodes is animated and features the cast members' names being put into a blender and mixed up (the "blended family" is a recurring phrase used on the show). The theme song is an instrumental.

    • For this episode only, Shashawnee Hall rather than James Pickens, Jr. plays Jack's friend and fellow teacher Jim.

    • The basic credit order is the same for all episodes: Mel Harris, Jere Burns, Marne Patterson, Billy L. Sullivan and Emily Ann Lloyd. For some episodes Carol Ann Susi is listed sixth in the opening credit sequence, and occasionally Christine Dunford and Michael Milhoan were listed there too. Otherwise, those regulars were listed first among the guest stars in the closing credits, as was Barry Jenner.
