The kids decide to throw a New Year's party in an attempt to find companionship, and end up fighting over the same woman. Lydia meets a man at work and invites him to their party, not knowing he is Crystal's father. Crystal freaks when she sees her father at the party because she has yet to tell him about Stewart.
Out of Practice is a comedy about a family of physicians who share the same profession but have little else in common. Ben Barnes is an earnest young couples' counselor whose family doesn't consider him to be a "real" doctor because he doesn't have "M.D". after his name. They're the real doctors: Ben's brother Oliver is good-looking, self-centered, and a plastic surgeon who enjoys dating the prettiest women in town, some of whom he helped make that way; and his sister Regina is an E.R. doctor who's hooked on the non-stop action there.
Their divorcing parents are Stewart, a gastroenterologist who is glad to be free from the reins of his controlling wife, and Lydia, a driven, status conscious cardiologist whose career eclipsed her ex's years ago. Stewart is also dating Crystal, his assistant, who just happens to be a patient of Oliver's. But despite their lofty credentials, Ben might be the best prescription for the future of this family.
