Returning p. The family sitcom easily adhered to a familiar formula: two parents simply attempt to keep their home civilized despite having teenage children under their roof. Early in the series, "8 Simple Rules" took this route as well, as the first several episodes were mainly about father Paul Hennessy's Ritter efforts to understand his teenaged children's behavior. Usually, he'll falter due to his own shortcomings and ends up learning a lesson about himself or his children. At Paul's side is his wife Cate Katey Sagal , who is returning to work after years as a housewife and mother.

It's Christmas time, and Paul hopes to make this Christmas the best Christmas yet. When Paul asks what everyone would like, Rory says he wants a motorcycle, Bridget wants Kyle to spend the holiday with her, and Kerry wants to keep a stray dog she found. When Paul says that Kerry can't keep the dog, she is upset as usual. Later, Paul writes a column encouraging people to adopt pets, which makes her feel better. Meanwhile, Cate gets the solo part at the Christmas Eve service, and she is nervous that her family will be there.
