  • 'Til Death is a comedy about the triumphs and tribulations of marriage and friendship from very different perspectives. It's about the funny – and sometimes annoying – things that happen between husbands, wives, parents, children, neighbors and friends day after day after day... EDDIE (Brad Garrett) and JOY STARK (Joely Fisher) are your typical long-time married couple: Eddie is the unemotional, cynical and tell-it-like-it-is husband while Joy is the caring, loving wife who on a daily basis has to put up with all things Eddie. You could say Joy is the yin to Eddie's yang. They've been through it all together – and actually survived. Joy and Eddie are the perfect fit, and as much as they gripe about their marriage, Eddie really does love Joy, and Joy, despite it all, loves Eddie for all his shortcomings. Living in suburban Philadelphia, Eddie and Joy live somewhat idyllic lives. Eddie is a high school history teacher, and Joy works at a local travel agency. Their daughter, ALLY (Lindsey Broad), is in a long-term relationship with DOUG (Timm Sharp), whom Eddie and Joy consider unworthy of their princess. This season, Ally and Doug return from their trek in the Ecuadorian rainforest and set up camp in the Starks' backyard. Meanwhile, Eddie decides to write a book about the Hindenburg, and Joy comes to terms with the job market in the current economy.moreless

    • Joy: Is that a billiard truck pulling up to the Woodcock's? I guess he got his pool table. Eddie: I guess he did.

    • Eddie: Because, in marriage, women stop fun from happening.

    • Eddie: And it seems to me that Steph would like a room to entertain in for dinner parties. Steph: Yeah, thank you.

    • Jeff: I'm your new vice principal, Mr. Woodcock. Pete Pratt: I'm sorry, Mr. Wood what? Eddie: And so it begins.

    • Joy: Really? You think that I am not fun? Eddie: That's right, I don't Joy: Well, prepare to experience the depths of how not fun I can be. Eddie: (long pause) Uh oh.

    • Jeff: The more I think about this pool table thing, the more I realize you are so completely wong. Eddie: I can write this script word for word. She'll say, "Isn't the room a little small for a pool table?" And you'll say, "No." And she'll say, "yeah, but how often do you really get to play pool?" And you'll say, "Well, I don't get to play much, but I'd love to." A pool table is for fun. Men want to have fun and wives want to walk that fun deep into the woods and shoot it dead. (later in the house) Steph: I was thinking about that pool table, and are you sure the dining room is big enough? (Jeff looks at Eddie)

    • Steph: I was thinking about that pool table and are you sure the dining room is big enough? Eddie: There it is. Jeff: There's plenty of room in there honey, yeah. Steph: But how much do you really play pool. Jeff: I don't really play all that much but that's mainly because I don't have a pool table. You said that you love the idea of a pool table, you thought that the purple felt was pretty. Steph: Purple is fine, if you're a pimp. Eddie: Can we get some more olives out here?

    • Jeff: The more I think about this pool table thing the more I realize, you are so completely wrong. Eddie: I could write the script word for word. She'll say, isn't the room a little small for a pool table and you'll say, no, and she'll say, yeah but how often do you get to play pool, and you'll say, well I don't get to play much but I'd love to. A pool table is for fun. Men want to have fun and wives want to walk that fun deep into the woods and shoot it dead.
