After divorcing her abusive, alcoholic husband and recovering from her own alcoholism, Grace tries to rebuild her life and protect her children from making the same mistakes. Against this serious backdrop, this show is actually a comedy, finding humor in the relationships between Grace and her co-workers at the oil refinery, her neighbors Wade and Nadine, and Russel Norton, the bachelor pharmacist.

Cans of President's Choice Cola can be seen being used by the fictional family of Grace Kelly. This brand of Cola is produced for Loblaw's food stores (mostly its subsidiary stores Real Canadian Superstore, Real Canadian Wholesale club and Extra foods) throughout Canada. Even though President's Choice is sold and manufactured in Canada, they also have agreements to sell the "private label" brand in other supermarket chains. Two of those chains were Jewel Supermarkets (Chicago area grocery that is independent from Loblaw's, Grace Kelly's fictional St. Louis area home, is in reality, located in a Chicago suburb. A show producer must have had a connection to Chicago, in some way, and was probably familiar with the President's Choice private label brand.) National Supermarkets, which was based in St. Louis, and was owned by Loblaw's, was the other chain that carried President's Choice. This show was filmed in Los Angeles, but the show's location was in the St. Louis area, which viewers can assume was where the fictional Grace Kelly obtained the soda. See more

He's two days late with the rent.
I told him '$550, in cash, on the 1st of every month, under the ta... ble'
[hesitating - reaches underneath table
It's times like these that make it hard to defend him.
Next month I'm gonna tell him 'On the house', to see if he puts the money on the roof.
