Six years ago, Annie and Jake bonded over their mutual love of nachos and they’ve been inseparable ever since. Now, after returning from a romantic two-week island vacation, Jake’s all set to pop the question. Before he can ask, though, Annie lets loose on Jake for his inability to commit. She was expecting him to “put a ring on it” in paradise and now Jake’s perfect proposal is ruined. Not wanting to spend the next 60 years talking about that mess of a proposal, Jake and Annie decide to hold off on the engagement until they can do it right. Yet if history tells us anything, it’s when we really want things to go right that they all tend to go wrong. The only thing we know for sure is these two are destined to be together whether they can get it together or not.

Annie, Kay, and Dennah are able to convince Jake that Gil has become too reliant on him. Jake wants Gil to take charge of his own life but things end up changing the balance of the entire group.
A relative can attend only one wedding--either Annie's or that of her two recently engaged fathers; Gil bonds with 6th graders over laser tag and basketball.
After a meeting with Annie and their wedding officiant Dawn, Jake decides he should get to know Annie’s dads better. When Jake and Kevin 1 bond over their love of motorcycles, however, it leads to some pretty serious family trouble, particularly with Kevin 2. Meanwhile, Gil is very excited about his booth at the annual Flemish Pride Parade and enlists Annie to help him prepare a special musical production.
Annie decides she would like to host Thanksgiving dinner for the first time as a newly-engaged couple but Myrna, Jake’s mom, has always hosted. While Myrna appears to be supportive of the change of plans, Annie quickly realizes that she is engaged in a complicated chess match over who will be the most important woman in Jake’s life. Meanwhile, Gil goes in search of cheese to bring to the Thanksgiving dinner and discovers that he has a knack for fine cheese tasting. His newfound talents lead him to an underground world of exquisite and unique cheeses.
As the gang gathers to celebrate Annie and Jake’s sixth anniversary of their first date, their plans are disrupted by an epic storm and everyone retreats to the basement for shelter. Gil wows the group with his take-charge attitude, while Annie, Kay and Dennah become completely obsessed with finding out what Jake appears to be hiding in his desk.
