Robert Culp and Katherine Helmond make their first joint series appearance as Warren and Lois Whalen, the wealthy, globetrotting in-laws of Ray Barone (Ray Romano). When the Whalens drop in for a visit, Ray admonishes his blue-collar parents to make them feel welcome. Relationships between the two sets of parents are strained, but the evening bids fair to go off without a hitch. That's when Ray blows the works by suggesting that the Barones and the Whalens all go out for dinner at a fancy restaurant.
