Chronicles liberal ex-hippies Steven and Elyse Keaton, their conservative son Alex, daughters Mallory and Jennifer, and later, youngest child Andrew.
Elyse and Steven were both born in the early 1940s and Alex was born in the late 1960s. (This is mentioned due to the fact that Meredith Baxter and Michael Gross were only 14 years older than their on-screen son, Michael J. Fox).
I love you, Elyse.
Elyse Keaton: No, I love you more, Steven.
Alex P. Keaton: Oh, for crying... will you hang up the phone?
