Steph (Kat Foster) gives Eddie (Brad Garrett) and Joy (Joely Fisher) a cappuccino maker that was a wedding gift from Jeff’s (Eddie Kaye Thomas) mom. Joy loves the gift, but Eddie soon begins to resent Joy for not learning how to work the machine herself. When Eddie refuses to make Joy her nightly cappuccino, she makes a list of all the things that she does around the house and comes to the conclusion that Eddie doesn't do enough. To compensate for their uneven workload, Joy gives Eddie the chore of paying the bills, which later proves not to be in the best interest of their household. Meanwhile Jeff tries to get back at Steph for giving a present from his mom away.
