Nick is a single Italian-American guy from New Jersey.  His parents moved to Florida, and his sister to California.  But he still has family nearby.  He sees both sets of grandparents every Sunday for dinner.  This is a routine until the day comes when he has to tell them that he’s been offered a dream job which requires his moving to Seattle, Washington, which will take him away from this beloved but annoying grandparents.  Thus begins the scheming to keep Nick around which includes bringing to dinner the lovely and single Caitlin O’Hare as bait.  “Tengo  famiglia.”
