Last Man Standing

Synopsis: Mike Baxter is the marketing director for an iconic outdoor sporting goods store. He loves to have adventures while he's traveling for work and, of course, he drives a pick-up truck. While Mike is king of the hill at work, he's the odd man out in a home that is dominated by women -- namely his wife, Vanessa, and their three daughters, 20- year-old Kristin, 17-year-old Mandy and 13-year-old Eve. After being a stay-at-home mom for years, Vanessa recently returned to the workplace and was quickly promoted (much to the dismay of her primarily male co-workers). As a result of Vanessa's increased work load, Mike is pulled into more hands-on parenting than ever before.

That's definitely our girl.

We found her.

She's at the


Go, go, go.

Clear left.

Clear right.

- One up.

- Two up.

- Three clear.

- Room clear.

Put your gun on the counter.

- Clear left.

- Clear right.

Right. Call your boss.


Watch your right!

We got her!

Hold, hold, hold, hold.

Back off.

Back off!

No more throwing

your magic wand, princess.

I was just putting

a spell on that house...

for not having its lights on.

Yes, while that might

make purr-fect sense,

Mommy just doesn't

want to have to...

climb through

the bushes again

But Daddy says cats love...

climbing through bushes.

I'll climb in the bushes.

No, you won't,

'Mean' Joe Greene.

Now, which one of you

witches, goblins,

midgets, and ghouls

can tell me...

why penguins waddle?

Is that Nick?

Yes, that would

be my husband.

Because their legs are set

very far back on their body.

That's not that interesting,

though, huh?

I guess you guys want

some candy around now?

Okay, hold on.

Here we go, kids. Ready?

Open your bags.

Here we go.

All right.

You guys be good.

And stay out of politics.

All right,

my little linebacker.

Time for us to go home.

We have a long walk

all the way across the street.

Good night, Char.

See you tomorrow, Abby.

Nice costume, Nick.

What costume, Charlotte?

Hi, Daddy.

Hi, honey.

Look at all my candy!

Wow, you're gonna be up for,

like, days, huh?

Come on.

Let's go inside, guys.

So, then the princess

turned into a dragon...

that could breathe fire.

A princess

turned into a dragon?

Yeah, that's my part

of the story, Mommy.

Tomorrow night,

we can change it back.

But tonight,

the princess is a dragon.

So, then you know

what happened?

The next thing

that happened...

Will you tell me a story?


There once was

a handsome prince...

I like it already.

...Who was madly in love...

with a beautiful,

dark-haired knight.


You know, it was

a very progressive realm.


The knight was a woman.

Come on, Turbo!

Okay, Mommy, I'm ready!

Okay, good!

Come on.

Okay. All right.

Have a good day.

Have fun.

Haley, don't run.

She's all right.

Brian's out of town

for three weeks.

So you know what they say

when the cat's away?

The mouse misses him.


Why don't you come

over this weekend?

Board games, barbecue.

I thought you'd never ask.

- Hey, honey.

- Help!

Our computers are down, honey.

We're dead in the water.

Well, did you try to reboot?

I won't even touch that thing.

Okay. Do you want me

to come by?

Yeah. Would you, please?

All right.

I'll be right there.

You see this?

Now, this microchip

goes under Gatsby's fur.

So if he ever runs away again,

we can find him right away.

Now, the number on the side

here is his tracking number.

I'm gonna type this number

into our computer...

so we can see where

Gatsby is at all times.

And he'll never

get lost again?

Never again.


Okay. It's a deal,

then, right?

So, I'll see you and

Gatsby on Thursday.

All right.

All right, pal.

Thank you.

My savior.

Hey, baby.


Come on.

So I got this blue screen,

and then every computer in the

place just froze up, honey.

Oh, that's not good.


But my computer-genius wife

can fix it, right?

How did we ever function

before computers?

Remember the pencil?

Suddenly, I feel

so completely inept.

You should never feel inept.

You're the most

'ept' man I know.

Is 'ept' a word?

Are we gonna finish fixing

my computer or what?

I already fixed it.

That fast, huh?

Why the military ever let

a tech whiz like you go,

I'll never know.
