->''"What's yours is mine."''

The Malloys are a family of UsefulNotes/IrishTravellers and accomplished con artists. Wayne Malloy (EddieIzzard), the head of the family, gets on the wrong side of a Traveller clan, and the family goes on the run. While fleeing from another Traveller who they bumped into on the road, they accidentally run a rich couple who are moving to a new neighborhood ''off'' the road, killing them. The Malloys take the chance to adopt the couples' identities and house, and begin to experience life in the upper class.

This {{Dramedy}} (emphasis on Drama, but with Eddie Izzard in the cast, uproarious comedy was more or less inevitable) ran on FX for 2 seasons in 2007-2008, and Eddie Izzard has stated that he is working on a [[WrapItUp movie]] script to finish off the story.
----
!!Tropes:
* BadBoss -- Hugh
* BavarianFireDrill -- The entire show, and most of the episode plots. A notable one is where Wayne needs to learn law, so he wrangles himself a position as a guest lecturer at a nearby law college and tells the students to [[SarcasticConfession pretend he knows nothing about the law]], as a way of "testing" their knowledge. When they use too much legal language, he makes them dumb it down. Oh, and if they answer a question correctly, they get a cookie. It works ''beautifully''.
* TheBeard -- Nina is this for her husband. Though the both of them seem to be in denial about this.
* BrotherChuck -- The one armed woman who was a recurring character in season one completely vanishes in season two, despite Dale's growing attraction to her.
* ConArtist -- A whole family of them.
* CoolOldLady -- Nina, who is happy to smoke weed, sneak a few pills, and [[spoiler: run away with the family in season 2]].
* DrugsAreBad -- with one episode even entitled "This is your brain on drugs"
* EvenEvilHasStandards -- it's repeatedly stated that stealing from little old ladies is despicable; Cael gets chewed out for it at one point
* FakeAmerican -- Eddie Izzard and Minnie Driver.
* FishOutOfWater
* HeyItsThatGuy -- Hey, [[ItsAlwaysSunnyInPhiladelphia Dee Reynolds]] is a one-armed bitch!
* HowsYourBritishAccent -- used by Izzard in one of the con
* IHaveManyNames
* IndyPloy -- much of the cons go like this - one character will ask another "What's your plan?" to which the reply is "Uh ... yeah"
* UsefulNotes/IrishTravellers -- Specifically, Irish-American Travellers
* KilledToUpholdTheMasquerade -- [[spoiler:Pete]]
* MeaningfulName -- The family moves to a gated community named Edenfalls
* OohMeAccentsSlipping -- Izzard, almost constantly
* RagsToRiches -- the main characters, but not through hard work, and also the backstory of Wayne's boss, Hugh
* RichBitch -- We don't know much about the married couple killed in the first episode. But from what we do learn about them is that they were both pretty much obnoxious assholes. The husband having abandoned his first wife and their kids to live in poverty so he can run off with his young trophy wife. And the wife's mother simply describing her as "a bitch."
* VillainDecay -- Dale spends the entire first season being the lead antagonist. But immediately at the start of season two he becomes a harmless drunken baffoon.
* WholesomeCrossdresser -- Sam, an 8-year-old. While this is a source of some humor, it's still shown as a serious part of Sam's identity, and the family refuses to force him to identify as any one gender.
