Premise: Several friends own Paddy's Pub, a neighborhood bar in Philadelphia, and try to find their way in the world of work and relationships. But often, they can't get out of their own way, leading to uncomfortable situations, which usually worsen before improving. The gang includes twin siblings Dennis and Sweet Dee Reynolds, along with their longtime friends, Charlie Kelly and Ronald ``Mac'' McDonald. Charlie lives with Frank, Dennis and Sweet Dee's father, who has left his cheating, money-grabbing wife in an attempt to redeem himself after a history of doing business with sketchy people.
A typical day in Cricket's world ends with possible redemption when his family intervenes, setting up a chance to move on from the gang, find love and reemerge as Matthew Mara once again.
Dennis reveals that he has a baby from his layover time in North Dakota and everyone offers solutions to the problem, but in the end, Dennis must decide which life to continue to lead.
