You’re The One

Perky Lindsay Metcalf (Cynthia Geary) was a WASPy Southern aristocrat, the great-granddaughter of a Civil War general who fell for Mark Weitz (Elon Gold), a prototypical New Yawker and the great-grandson of a Rumanian horse trader.

She was an elegant landscape architect, he ran a baseball website on the Internet, called ‘The Score’.

Needless to say, their parents – especially hers – were aghast. Lindsay’s blustery, gun-toting dad, Bo (Leo Burmester), constantly tested his new son-in-law (“understand you’re a Jew?”), buying ‘The Score’ and saddling him with his timid teenage son, Chip (Jayce Bartok).

Mark’s large, noisy clan – including mum and dad Leanore (Dori Brenner) and Sy (Lenny Wolpe) – descended on the newlyweds, nattering over everything.

Stereotypes abounded as the two clans met. Mercifully, it all ended after only two episodes.
