Alison Parker looks for a new roommate after her previous one leaves her in the dead of night without money for the rent. Billy Campbell arrives and charms his way into moving in with Alison, even though he gets on her nerves and has no money for the rent. At Alison's job as a receptionist at D&D Advertising, she finds herself receiving unwanted attention from her boss, Hal Barber. Michael Mancini is the building manager and an intern at the local Wilshire Memorial Hospital while his wife, Jane, is a boutique salesclerk who wants to start a family. Matt Fielding is a gay social worker. His best friend, aerobics instructor Rhonda Blair, meets a man in her aerobics class whose interests in her turn out to be anything but romantic. Rhonda's roommate is Sandy Louise Harling, a blond southern belle and struggling actress who moonlights as a waitress at a bar called 'Shooters.' Jake Hansen is an unemployed manual laborer who can't shake off Kelly Taylor, a cute 17-year-old girl from the series "Beverly Hills, 90210." Jake and Kelly decide to go out on a date to Shooters, but they find themselves watched over by Kelly's disapproving friends, David, Donna and Steve. Even after Jake dumps Kelly, she comes back to him. Written by Anonymous See less
