Marty Pascal (Josh Hamilton) is a college student going home to introduce his family to his fianc''e, Lesly (Tori Spelling). He is nervous about the meeting because of his odd family.

When Jackie learns that her brother will be bringing a woman home, she becomes distressed. Marty and Lesly arrive and Mrs. Pascal (Genevieve Bujold) immediately decides she does not like Lesly, while Jackie has a breakdown in the bathroom.
