The series focuses on an eccentric motley crew that is the Smith family and their three housemates: Father, husband, and breadwinner Stan Smith; his better half housewife, Francine Smith; their college-aged daughter, Hayley Smith; and their high-school-aged son, Steve Smith. Outside of the Smith family, there are three additional main characters, including Hayley's boyfriend turned husband, Jeff Fischer; the family's man-in-a-goldfish-body pet, Klaus; and most notably the family's zany alien, Roger, who is "full of masquerades, brazenness, and shocking antics."

Chuck White offered to host the pot-luck

You were so much more

You set me up, Klaus!
Why would you do something so awful?
I have a theory to test.
No. I'm on an ultra-strict diet. I can only eat

- Well, I'm sure the best man will...
Deacon Stan, Jesus Man.
- Yes, yes. We've all seen the diagram.
- Last night, I ate all your potato salad,
We served alien breast milk to our church!

Betsy White said she's learning CPR.
She could sink this whole election.
I mean, look at her. She's clearly gay.

Now, go be a father to your son,

It's not like I wanted to do anything with

Oh, OK. Hayley and I'll go say hello to

We are - in America. Down here,

Francine decides to throw a block party to get in touch with the neighborhood. Stan learns his new neighbors are Iranian and immediately suspects that they are terrorists. To prepare Steve for living near terrorists, Stan makes Steve join a group
of scouts, who turn out to be trouble makers. Roger is convinced he possesses hidden alien powers and is determined to find out what they are.
Well, I can get my feelings hurt
and throw a world-class hissy fit!
Well, I'm so proud of you.
You actually are being fun.
No, I think they're Iranian.
We also have a Cleveland here in America.

No, this is how white people say hello.

- That was really cool.
That's enough sangria.
You know, our neighbours are OK.
Dad, what you did was racial profiling. The
Memaris had nothing to do with that gazebo.
Why are you going through my purse?
Let's be friends.
It's times like this I wish I had a wife

- No problem.
- Really? I can just quit?
This psycho is putting on South Pacific

Guard! Oh, wait a second.
It's a front hook. I see it. I see it.
Sorry you're terrorists!
- Let them out. This isn't funny.
- Linda's making a run for the gate.
- How could you do this to me?
- It's not always about you, Francine.
- Hey, is that my dad's sweatshirt?

Starting to get uncomfortable, isn't it?
- Release the Memaris.
- They're human beings. They have rights.
Roger, stopping for that burrito

Steve, do you believe in magic?
You don't know if you don't try.

You can't imprison

Stan invites his boss over for dinner, but the Smith family fears getting caught hiding Roger. After a close-call, Roger goes into a coma, making everyone thinking he's dead. After the family disposes of his body, Roger tries to get back home, but he ends up in another risky situation with the CIA.
Dinner, huh? Great idea.
They sure knew how to write
female characters back then.
Bright and summery on the palate,

She wanted to come,

Good God, Smith! What the?
Don't stress him out.
It messes with his stomachs.
Oh, yeah? Well, I...
Up and at 'em. Time to make
another awful Richard Linklater movie.
- Gattaca II finally got its financing.
- Dad, I think he's dead.
No, I'll have to dispose of the body
so the government can't trace it back to us.
- Not the largest. The one right under that.
- That would be the medium.
Get it off me!
It might cheer you up to help me burn

I'm not a monster.
So basically, you're telling me
I'm stuck here for two more years.
For a pet.
The home? No.
We're going to DC to see the sights.
Actually, they put Agent Duper on chatter.
Don't you have any feelings?
You're a monster! I have no father.
Well, we do go back a ways.
Oh, I've got claws. Look how fat you are.

Hayley comes home from a Green Party rally with her hair dyed green, instigating a fight with Stan. While she's sleeping, Stan cuts her hair (for her own good, of course). After learning of what Stan did, a wigged Hayley defies her father yet again
by moving into the van of her new boyfriend. When Stan cuts her off financially, she gets a job as a waitress in a strip club, which pushes Stan right off the edge. Meanwhile, Steve tries to pass Roger off as his disfigured sister in order to cop a feel with a female classmate.

- Good news, Francine.

No. Francine is devastated. If she's this upset

Stan Smith is mad because after getting his wife a job (or "hobby") as a Real Estate agent, she makes more money than him. In the meantime, his daughter Hayley ran a program that helped the homeless, and Stan's son Steve had an idea to have a Bum
Fight program. To get back and to try to gain more money than his wife, Stan takes Steve's idea and starts a Bum Fight Night where he takes bets and treats the homeless like wrestlers. But with the homeless petition, Stan has to end up fighting like a homeless man himself.

Stan Smith uses his CIA skills to help 13-year-old son Steve win class president and the heart of the hottest girl in class, Lisa Silver. But when being class president makes Steve mad with power, Stan must jump in to save the day. Meanwhile, Roger,
the alien Stan saved from Area 51, helps 18-year-old Hayley with her school paper. In return, she hooks him up with boatloads of junk food to curb his sweet tooth. Unfortunately, some Chocodiles send him over the edge and a sugar crash prohibits him from finishing one of her papers, forcing Hayley to pick up the pieces. And Klaus, the goldfish with the brain of a German guy, pines after mother Francine. Unfortunately for Klaus, the closest he'll ever get to a date with her is the spin cycle with her sports bra.
Don't worry, she won't turn you down. You're
a Smith and a Smith always gets his girl.
