Next Episode of Still Standing is
not planed. TV Show was canceled.
Still Standing is a comedy about a blue-collar Chicago couple working to raise their three children responsibly and not lose sight of their own youthfulness. After 18 years of marriage, high school sweethearts Bill and Judy Miller still make each other laugh and try to keep their marriage intact, even when their family pulls them in different directions. Judy's married sister, Linda, butts heads with Bill, and the Millers' precocious teenage daughter, Lauren, thinks her parents are uncool. Meanwhile, their uptight, studious son, Brian, is discovering girls, and their youngest child, Tina, would prefer to run around naked. In addition to spending time with his family, Bill spends a good deal of time with his best friend, Danny Fitzsimmons, who is working to raise his own son, who happens to be gay. Since Bill has a far more immature approach to marriage and raising children than Judy does, they work at striking a balance and remembering why they love each other, quirks and all.
Judy and Bill (Jami Gertz, Mark Addy) play a "truth" game that ends with her feelings hurt and his chronic neck pain cured. Also, Bill gives his son a few tips on ways to impress a girl.
Judy joins a book club to exercise her mind, but after Bill intrudes on a discussion, she competes with him to see who can be the smarter reader. Linda, meanwhile, sets her sights on winning a date with the book club's leader (Sean Masterson).
Judy gets bent out of shape at her 20th class reunion over a classmate that's far more accomplished than she is, till Bill tells her this classmate's marriage is in trouble.
Lauren likes classmate Alex, and Bill, against Judy's advice, interferes in the "romance". Lauren is humiliated. Judy gets tickets for all involved to see Blink 182 in concert. Inadvertently, Lauren gets even more humiliated, this time by her mother on the jumbotron.
After they're caught sleeping during Tina's solo number at a school recital, Bill and Judy volunteer in her classroom to make amends, but their good intentions immediately backfire when Bill and another father enter into a shoving match and Judy accidentally puts the kindergarten hamster in harm's way.
Brian joins the high-school football team as a placekicker after some persuasion from Bill, who points out it's a surefire way to meet girls. Subsequently, the teen becomes friendly with a cheerleader (Karina Tregub), but Bill's displeased because she's helping Brian try out for the pep squad.
Bill's bond with Linda's latest beau (Mitch Rouse) is so strong that when Linda catches the guy cheating, Bill secretly continues the friendship. Judy, meanwhile, tells a small white lie in order to stay home and watch a hockey game on TV, instead of attending a pottery class with her sister.
Judy's idea to share in an evening of fun family activities once a week is met with ridicule from Bill and the kids, who, because of their constant complaining, drive Judy to walk out on their first attempt at spending some quality time together.
Tensions run high in the Miller household as Judy's steadily bickering parents (Janet Carroll, Steven Gilborn) visit for Thanksgiving, and things only get worse when the couple announce they're extending their already unwelcome stay by a week. Linda, meanwhile, tackles cooking the traditional turkey dinner in hopes of winning some praise. Brian: Taylor Ball. Lauren: Renee Olstead.
Judy takes Bill's advice to feign a shared interest with her boss to get a promotion. What she receives, though, are opera tickets for the same night as a big hockey game. Linda, meanwhile, happily volunteers to chaperone Lauren's sleepover party.
Bill loans a co-worker (Chris Elliott) $300 to buy a big-screen TV without realizing the guy has a reputation for not repaying debts, which is worrisome considering Judy needs money to replace a broken hot-water heater. Carl: David Koechner.
Lauren's forbidden from attending her first school dance as a punishment for bullying, which Judy recalls falling victim to as a teen. Lauren, though, has evidence of a double standard after Bill lets it slip that Judy used to tease a girl by calling her "Gina-so-smelly."
Judy is sick and tired of being regarded as the family disciplinarian, while Bill gets to be the fun parent by letting the kids break the rules. To remedy the situation, she adopts a rather carefree attitude, which throws everyone for a loop.
Bill feels inadequate in the company of Linda's physically fit boyfriend (Greg Vaughan), so he attempts to prove his own athleticism by joining a beginner hockey league, but overexerts himself just trying to keep up with the other players. Meanwhile, Judy is pressured into joining a health club and taking spinning classes.
The humorous Valentine's Day card that Judy receives from Bill leaves her feeling as if the romance in their marriage is dead. To reignite the old spark, Judy shows up at Bill's job wearing nothing but a trench coat and high heels, but her surprising visit doesn't go exactly as planned. Elsewhere, Brian seeks his parents' advice when trying to impress a girl at school. Bonnie: Ashley Michelle Tisdale. Miss Bodin: Patricia Belcher.
Bill has to crawl back into Judy's favor by apologizing to her hairdresser (David Hasselhoff) for calling him a rip-off artist.
Bill and Judy press Lauren (Renee Olstead) into handing in an elaborate tornado machine they constructed as her science project. The teacher is so impressed with Lauren's assignment that she promotes the 13-year-old to an honors science class, meaning more homework for Bill and Judy.
Judy warns Linda against moving too fast in her love life after she gets dumped by one guy, then immediately jumps into another relationship with a handsome restaurateur (Jeffrey Nordling). When Judy's advice falls on deaf ears, a feud breaks out between the sisters.
Bill gets together with an old buddy whose wild and crazy ways he idolized in high school, but is disappointed to find his pal leading a straightlaced life with a boring wife. After realizing he too has changed since getting married, Bill attempts to relive his 1980s youth. Meanwhile, Lauren dreads her first clarinet recital.
As a favor to her beleaguered boss, Dr. Gerber (Richard Kind), Judy offers temporary shelter for his prized pet pooch. Bill goes a step further, showing the dog and his lonely owner how to kick up their heels and have fun. Mr. Conway: Maz Jobrani.
Bill proves himself too eager to please when his master-of-the-guilt-trip mother (Sally Struthers) pays a surprise visit. That is, until Judy suggests he stop placating the woman and start ignoring her, a strategy that ends up backfiring on Bill when he hurts his mom's feelings and she runs away.
The first-season finale finds Bill and Judy abandoning their floor seats at an AC/DC concert to search for a missing Lauren, who they presume has sneaked out of the house to attend a forbidden beer party thrown by one of Brian's cheerleader friends. Meanwhile, Brian, who didn't make the guest list, follows his dad's example by crashing the bash and acting like he belongs with the rest of the party-goers.
