Jeff is a serious slacker, still living with his mother, who is constantly belittled by his older brother, Pat, for not doing anything with his life. Pat, on the other hand, has made a somewhat successful career in business; though due to his short temper and low emotional-range, is on the verge of a divorce with his wife. Their mother meanwhile, is coming to a mid-life crisis and woes over the fact that she hasn't known romance in so long, though she seems to find excitement in her office from the most unexpected of places.
