This sitcom is about the fairly ordinary daily lives of a young couple of New Yorkers, too-nice-for-his-own-good author Paul Buchman and his assertive partner Jamie Stemple Buchman, who are almost constantly bickering and making up with each-other and just about anybody else, notably his parents, siblings, friends and all kinds of staff, even their dog Murray and his dog-walker.

Jamie Buchman (born February 19, 1963) was the younger daughter of Gus and Theresa Stemple. Her full maiden name is Jamie Eunice Stemple. After seven boyfriends at Yale University, she met Paul Buchman at a New York newsstand by stealing his copy of The New York Times with an implausible excuse. Her difficult relationship with her mother-in-law is an ongoing source of jokes on the show.
Jamie Stemple was born at 2:01 am, with a full head of hair, in New Haven, Connecticut, to proud parents Gus and Theresa Stemple. After a rosy childhood that she shared with her sister Lisa (with whom she shares a psychic bond), she went on to attend Yale University. At Yale, she had seven boyfriends, but never decided on a major. At 18, she wrote a short story, entitled "New Haven," about her college experiences. On moving to New York, she took a job at Farrer-Gantz Public Relations, eventually rising to the position of Regional Vice President. After leaving Farrer-Gantz to continue her education, Jamie started her own public relations firm, which was eventually consolidated into City Hall's press department, under Director of Communications Lance Brockwell. When Brockwell set his sights on the Mayor's mansion, he selected Jamie as his campaign manager. In December of 1989, Jamie met Paul Buchman, and the couple were married in 1992. Paul and Jamie recently became parents to a baby daughter named Mabel.
