Andrew "Drew" Thatcher (Bill Smitrovich) is the hard-working patriarch of the family who, after leaving a job in construction, runs a restaurant. His wife, Elizabeth "Libby" (Patti LuPone), is initially a full-time mom but, after the restaurant burns, eventually goes back to work in advertising. As the show begins, Drew and Libby have three children -- Paige, Corky and Becca -- and a dog, affectionately credited as "Arnold the Semi-Wonder Dog." At the end of season two, a second son named Nicky is born. Paige (Monique Lanier, then Tracey Needham) is a young adult and the product of Drew's first marriage. She moves back into the house and runs through a series of jobs and boyfriends, trying to find her place in the world. She later discovers that she loves building and eventually co-owns a company with her friend and former supervisor, Artie (Troy Evans).
