Misanthropic Dr. John Becker runs a clinic in New York City. He is assisted by super-capable Margaret Wyborn and less-than-capable Linda, who's only kept on because no one else can stand the doctor. Becker's best (some would say only) friend is the blind Jake Malinak, who runs a newsstand in the diner across the street. The diner used to be run by Reggie Kostas, but it has been taken over by Chris Conner, a lady whom Becker fluctuates between loathing and being attracted to. The diner is also frequented by Robert Benito, who is universally known as Bob and is the super at Becker's apartment (much to the doctor's regret).
He's only human... sometimes.

All these girls can be so dumb! Tanning salons are so bad for you.
Oh come on, Margaret. You remember what it was like when you needed a quick tan for a big occasion, like the prom.
No, Linda, I never needed a quick tan.
Oh my God, Margaret, I'm so sorry. You didn't go to your prom did you?
