As they find themselves faced with the ongoing realities of middle-age, Eddie and Joy continue to argue, grumble, and gossip--all the while proving that in their own imperfect ways, they're perfect for one another. This season will explore new and deeper facets of their relationship using a different springboard: the hilariously volatile sparring between Eddie's friend Kenny and his ex-wife Tina. Compared to these two, the cynical and sarcastic Eddie and Joy are the picture of warmhearted domestic bliss!
When Joy can't flirt her way out of her first speeding ticket, she considers buying new lingerie and getting plastic surgery to help her get her "groove" back. Meanwhile, Kenny and Tina continue to fight over custody of their beloved dog, Beyonce.
When Eddie and Joy pay a visit to his parents in Florida, he discovers that his parents are planning to divorce to qualify for medical insurance. Eddie refuses to accept the divorce and convinces his mother that it's not a good idea to put dad back on the market.
When Kenny becomes Joy's new "girlfriend," Eddie feels left out and gets jealous of their girl-talk. In an attempt to feel included, Eddie crashes Joy's '70s-themed work party and sends Joy to the hospital in a disco mishap.
Eddie and Joy's daughter, Allison, comes home from college for a visit. She and her hippie boyfriend argue and decide to break up, which is fine with Eddie until he finds out that Doug is wealthy. Eddie and Joy then try to get the two back together by inviting Doug over for an organic dinner feast. Meanwhile, Kenny just wants them to get back together so he can get his bedroom back.
When Eddie and Joy spend a romantic night out in the city, Joy becomes enamored with city life and decides they should move downtown. Eddie tries to convince her to keep their house in the suburbs, but a visit to a new downtown loft development tempts him with fancy modern conveniences and causes him to reconsider his decision.
Kenny freaks out after losing his swim trunks at a water park and his new girlfriend notices he isn't circumcised. When he decides to go under the knife, Joy is impressed by his efforts to please a girl he hardly knows and badgers Eddie to do more nice things for her. Eddie tries to get Kenny to back out of his decision so he won't have to accompany Joy to six weeks of musicals in the park and takes him to a bris so he can see what circumcision looks like.
Joy discovers that Eddie has been hiding his favorite meatball-sandwich shop from her. This helps her come to the realization that they can't keep secrets from each other anymore because they've been married so long and seem to know everything about each other. Meanwhile, Steph's comments about her less-than-mysterious marriage prompt Joy to propose that she and Eddie come up with a new secret in hopes of spicing things up.
