Trouble brews at the new house as soon as they move in. The movers are a day late with their furniture, a dead body is found buried in their yard, their new dog runs away and the mailman is a drunk who comes close to running people over.
Andy finally finishes his novel, but Elizabeth finds it to be very boring. At that time she also tells him she has been writing a children's book about a squirrel.
As Andy receives a call from his editor, he gives him his wife's children's story instead of the one he wrote himself. Elizabeth soon finds out about Andy's plan, and moves out of the house and plans for a divorce.
Knowing it will be hard to sell the house, the two bribe the country folk to act civilized when ever a potential buyer comes to town.
After a long talk, Andy and Elizabeth realize they want to stay together. But now they must deal with all of the town people they promised to pay.
