Not quite ready to say goodbye to one another after leaving office, the Obamas and the Bidens decide to move into one big house and live together. Shenanigans ensue.

This is… Meet the Obidens.


Joe makes the four of them record an elaborate group answering machine message.

BARACK: Hello. You’ve reached the Obamas…
JOE: …and the Bidens!
MICHELLE: We can’t come to the phone right now…
JILL: …but leave a message and we’ll get back to you at our earliest convenience.
JOE: YA DINGUSES! *cackles*
BARACK: *sighs* Joe, you can’t–
JOE: *slams the ‘save outgoing message’ button*

Joe keeps instigating petty arguments with Barack in hopes that two of them will end up in a fight and he can hilariously divide the house in half with a line of tape.

Joe scores hot dates to a big event for Barack and himself, forgetting that he already promised another set of dates that he and Barack would attend the event with them. The boys spend the rest of the night making excuses and covering for one another, while trying to divide their time between both sets of dates.

CUT TO: Michelle and Jill at home, completely unamused.

While attempting to do a wheelie in his bitchin’ Camaro, Joe accidentally drives the car through the kitchen wall.

BARACK: Joe, of all of the dangerous, irresponsible things you–
BARACK: *sigh* He means on Full House, honey.

Joe bursts into Barack’s study.

JOE: Dammit, Barry. We’ve only got six minutes left! You’ve got to do something!
BARACK: I’ve told you before, Joe, I just don’t think we can solve the problem with ISIL in under thirty minutes.
JOE: Have you tried a heartfelt apology and a hug?

Barack walks in on Joe, who has just finished making a phone call.

JOE: I just sent fifty large pizzas to the White House! *cackles*
BARACK: Well, that was nice of you, Joe. I’m sure the new staff will appreciate the chance to unwind and get to know each other with an impromptu pizza party.
JOE: Wha? No, but–
BARACK: You know what? Here’s my credit card. Call the pizza place back and order another hundred on me. I’m not sure if fifty pizzas will be enough to feed everyone.
JOE: …
JOE: You ruin the best pranks, Barry.

In a very special episode, Joe tries to pressure and Barack into smoking a cigarette behind the shed in the backyard.

JOE: C’mon. Don’t be a nerd, Barry. One cigarette’s not going to kill you. Or are you scared?
BARACK: Joe, you know I’m fifty-five, right? I smoked for years.

Barack tucks Joe in bed after reading from his favorite book.

JOE: Just one more chapter, Barry?
BARACK: Now, Joe, I’ve already read you three more chapters than I should have. It’s time for bed.
JOE: I wanna glass of water.
BARACK: You’ve had your glass of water for the night and, before you ask, you’ve already been to the bathroom.
JOE: Barry?
BARACK: Yes, Joe?
JOE: If I have bad dreams again, can I come sleep in your bed?
BARACK: I think you should try to sleep in your big boy bed tonight but, if you need us, Michelle and I will be right next door.
JOE: OK. ‘Night, Barry.BARACK: Goodnight, Slugger.

PAN OVER TO: Jill Biden, who has been sitting in bed next to Joe this entire time, reading quietly.

JILL: I can’t believe we have to go through this every night.
BARACK: For the last eight years. And, hopefully, for a long time to come.
