Season 4 Episode 1
Divorced working mother Christine Campbell (series star JULIA LOUIS-DREYFUS) attempts to juggle the daily stresses of motherhood and business -- which doesn't mean she isn't prone to taking NyQuil to get to sleep or leaving voicemail messages to herself in the middle of the night. She owns a women's 30-minute workout gym with her best friend, Barb (series star WANDA SYKES), and manages to send her young son, Ritchie (series star TREVOR GAGNON), to a posh private school, where Christine endures endless encounters with two snooty, stay-at-home "meanie" moms, Marly (series star TRICIA O'KELLEY), and Lindsay, (series star ALEX KAPP HORNER). Christine's younger brother, Matthew (series star HAMISH LINKLATER), lives with her and, in a pinch, serves as Ritchie's babysitter -- and her emotional rock.
