Yes, Dear is a comedy about two young couples and their outrageously contrasting views on parenting. First-time parents, Greg and Kim Warner struggle on a daily basis to become perfect at the job. Kim is a neurotic, stay-at-home mother, and although her husband, Greg, is a success in his career, his more difficult job is keeping his wife calm as they raise their year-old son, Sam. While Kim is determined to be the perfect mother and perfect wife and to raise the perfect son, her sister, Christine Hughes, a very down-to-earth mother of two [four-year-old Dominic and one-year-old Logan], continually reminds her that life will never be perfect. Christine's husband, Jimmy, is employed as a security guard and unconcerned about living in Kim and Greg's guest house and feels compelled to share with his brother-in-law his philosophy about being a husband and a parent while still remaining a man.

and Alan Thicke
), Long appears out of nowhere with a beer and Greg says, "That was fast," to which Long replies, "I used to work in a bar," an obvious reference to her stint on Cheers
(1982). See more

Jimmy, I can't believe you got Dominic a mullet.
Why? It's an acceptable haircut. Everybody in our hometown has a mullet.
Jimmy, people in our hometown even give their dogs mullets. This isn't back home, this is LA.
Uh, Dominic; you want to go out back and play catch with me?
Dominic Hughes [#2]
Why'd you do that?
Well, I didn't think he should hear you two arguing over his haircut. It might break his heart; his 'Achy Breaky Heart'
