Anne, a stay-at-home housewife, looks after the house and their young son David She and Helen quickly become friends despite their husbands' frequently adversarial relationship with one another. Often serving as the voice of reason against husband Jeffrey's tight, stuffy, condescending ways, Anne is often able to get Jeffrey to cave in and give into her view towards many things which they often disagree (and sometimes argue) about, i.e., the Ropers renting of the next door condo, when she, who is often in the right, makes strong behests to him.
