Ep101 Pilot

09/27/12 Season 1 TV-PG D

In 2001, the Zabvronians arrived on Earth and bought up every home in the Hidden Hills community. Ten years later, one of the Zabvronian couples moves back home because there’s been no word from the leaders of their planet.

Marty Weaver has moved his family from Bayonne, New Jersey -- without anyone's input. They meet the decidedly odd neighbors and begin to acquaint themselves with one another.

Memorable Quotes:

Marty: “You said, and I'm quoting here, ‘Marty, it would be nice if every once in a while you took some initiative and surprised me.’”
Debbie:
“I meant flowers, Marty. I meant a new crockpot. I did not mean for you to put a down payment on a townhouse and move the entire family without consulting me.”
Marty:
“Why, is there something wrong with our crockpot?”

Debbie: “Max, maybe you [and Dick] can be friends.”
Dick:
“Grant me the honor and I will remain loyal to you always.”
Max:
“Do you have a PlayStation?”
Dick:
“No.”
Max:
“Not interested.”

Debbie: “So, we’re just living amidst a cult of golf-cart driving pie-makers with the names of professional athletes.”

Jackie: “We receive nourishment through our eyes and minds rather than through our mouths.”
Marty:
“I heard about this. I think it’s European.”

Max: “My sister is such a dork.”
Dick:
“She seems to admire you greatly.”
Max:
“She’s a dork, dude.”
Dick:
“Oh, okay.”

 

Once the Weavers learn the truth about the Zabvronians, they wrestle with moving and/or alerting the authorities. But they two families soon realize they’ve got plenty to learn from each other, and the Weavers decide to stay.

Memorable Quotes:

Debbie: “Oh, so if they were war-mongering aliens, we’d be leaving.”
Marty:
“Yes.”
Debbie:
“But since they’re peace-loving aliens, we’re gonna stay.”
Marty:
“Sarcastic?”
Debbie:
“Little bit.”

Marty (seeing the green goo pouring out of Larry’s ears): “Whoa.”
Larry:
“This is how we cry. You should have seen me when I was pregnant.”

Dick: “Good news! I figured out how to save their panda bears from extinction.”

Marty: “I really don’t want to take initiative.”
Debbie:
“I know.”
Marty:
“I like when you tell me what to do.”
Debbie:
“I know.”
Marty:
“All the time, every decision…
Debbie:
“All right, let’s just stop there.”
