Former major-league baseball player Tony Micelli and his daughter, Samantha, arrive at the Connecticut household of executive Angela Bower, where Tony has taken a job as live-in housekeeper. The Bowers are an interesting family, to say the least. Angela is uptight and obsessed with her work. Her son, Jonathan, is shy and lacks self-esteem, and her mother, Mona Robinson, is a man-hungry vixen. Tony soon wins them over with his laid-back style, and they soon begin to loosen up. Over time, romantic tensions begin to surface between Angela and Tony, and we see the children grow up.
