The Seaver kids have left the nest and have children of their own. Mike, Carol, and Chrissy have no place to go when Kate is at a spa, Scott is out on a campaign, and Chrissy claims to have gotten evicted. Jason and Maggie plan to sell their house to a childhood friend of Mike and Carol's named Richie Flanscopper. Acting as the realtor, Ben is dead set on selling the house, but the rest of the Seaver kids object. Mike and Carol (who is pregnant) take matters into their own hands and sabotage the house so their little brother can't sell it to Richie and his wife Fiona. Meanwhile, Mike's oldest child, Michelle, is sad about her dad going to Tokyo for a job promotion. In the end, Ben realizes that his siblings and parents don't want to sell the house, so he makes the house unsellable by driving Mike's car through the garage door. The Seavers rejoice, until Carol goes into labor. Carol gives birth to a son, named Seaver Malone Johnson.
