New Yorkers Bill and Connie Fuller have to move from their apartment. Without Bill's knowledge, Connie purchases a delapidated old farmhouse in Pennsylvania, where George Washington was supposed to have actually slept during the American Revolution. Much of the humor comes from the couple's many problems they encounter while trying to fix up the place. Written by

take your TV remote and pause about two seconds before they fall, and then switch to super Slo-Mo on the remote...you can clearly see the faces of the stand-in actors who took the fall. Really neat!. See more
Connie, why didn't you tell me about this letter from the bank?
I didn't want to bother you, Bill.
