Seeking to inject some democracy into the process, he persuades nice but dim football hero Paul Metzler to stand against her. This merely makes Tracy even more determined to win, and when Paul's alienated younger sister Tammy joins the race, leads her to use extreme measures to guarantee success. Meanwhile, Mr. McAllister's life becomes increasingly complicated as he strays from the principles he teaches. Politics is rarely pretty, but the students and faculty at Carver High are about to find out just how ugly it can get

Chuck and Larry are the pride of their fire station. Two guy's guys always side-by-side and willing to do anything for each other. Widower Larry wants just one thing, to protect his kids. His buddy Chuck also wants on thing, to enjoy the single life. Grateful Chuck owes Larry for saving his life in a fire, and Larry calls in his marker when civic red tape prevents him from naming his own two kids as his life insurance beneficiaries. All that Chuck has to do is claim to be Larry's domestic partner on some city forms. But when an overzealous bureaucrat becomes suspicious, the new couple's arrangement becomes a citywide issue and goes from confidential to front-page news. Chuck and Larry must now fumble through a charade of domestic bliss.
