Following their double wedding, sisters Jan and Marcia and their new husbands, Philip and Wally, look for places to live, and find its not so easy. The young couples are aided in their search for houses by the girls' mother, Carol Brady, who is now working as a real estate agent.

Sharing a house isn't easy, as the young couples find out. Often their lifestyles clash: toy salesman Wally enjoys bringing his products home, such as a gigantic gorilla that plagues Philip, an often stodgy, academic type.

When Eubanks suggests the young couples appear as contestants on his show, Marcia, Jan and Wally become excited about the prospects of winning lots of prizes. Philip, however, takes a dim view of the situation, feeling he'll make a fool of himself, but decides to go along with it when he realizes he could win a new aquarium for his guppies.
