TV show description:
Bill Pearson (Bill Engvall) is a family counselor who is good at his job but finds it difficult to understand his own family. He’s happily married to Susan (Nancy Travis), his witty and loving mate. Together, they do their best to face parenting issues like allowances, driver’s license, and parking tickets while still managing to keep their marriage alive.
The Pearsons have three children; Lauren, Trent, and Bryan. Lauren (Jennifer Lawrence) is a typical high-schooler who is doing her best to get through her classes and navigate the dating world. Middle-child Trent (Graham Patrick Martin) is a bit dim and would much rather play sports and video games than pay attention to his studies. Meanwhile, young Bryan (Skyler Gisondo) is a neat-freak who’s musically-talented and the genius of the household.
Bill works in the same building as his best friend, Paul Dufrayne (Tim Meadows). Paul is a well-renowned hair-replacement specialist who likes to look good and buy the latest gadgets but is anything but lucky when it comes to the ladies.
Episode 30 — Trash Talk
Bill and Susan get into a feud with a new neighbor over trashcans on the curb, but Bill goes a little overboard in his tactics, especially when Paul decides to get involved. Meanwhile, Trent fails his driving test and he’s convinced it’s because he lost his lucky red quarter.
First aired: September 5, 2009.
