By Joe DiPietro
Directed by Stephanie Campbell
Nick is a single, Italian-American guy from New Jersey. His parents retired and moved to Florida. That doesn't mean his family isn't still in Jersey. In fact, he sees both sets of this grandparents every Sunday for dinner. This is routine until he has to tell them that he's been offered a dream job. This job he's been waiting for -- marketing executive -- would take him away from his beloved, but annoying, grandparents. He tells them. The news doesn't sit so well. Thus begins a series of schemes to keep Nick around. How could he betray his family's love to move to Seattle, for a job, wonder his grandparents? Well, Frank, Aida, Nunzio, and Emma do their level best, and that includes bringing to dinner the lovely -- and single -- Caitlin O'Hare as bait... We won't give the ending away here.
