Storyline

Jack and Rebecca's first instincts upon learning of Rebecca's pregnancy are for Rebecca not to turn out like her judgmental passive/aggressive mother who still drives her crazy, or for Jack not to turn out like his physically and emotionally abusive father. Jack is estranged from his widowed father, who knows nothing about Jack's current life. By the end of Rebecca's first trimester by which time they've prepared somewhat for their new life as parents including renting a two bedroom sixth floor walk-up apartment they can ill afford, they learn that Rebecca is carrying triplets. Knowing that the apartment is impractical for three babies and not having the financial means for three children at this time, each of Jack and Rebecca make decisions about their life as parents for which they may not be emotionally prepared, but which they know they have to do to make it under the circumstances. In present day, things with the play seem to be going well with Kevin and Sloane now co-financing ... Written by Huggo

Quotes

Toby Damon: [recovering in the hospital after having a heart attack] This is what I get for flying across the country to surprise you.
Kate Pearson: You're alive. Stop complaining.
Toby Damon: No, I'm tired. I am cranky. And I have a straw stuck so far up my junk that I could whistle "Don't Worry, Be Happy" if I sneezed.
