DESCRIPTION: (from ABC's press release) People claim it's the thought that counts, but sometimes good intentions can have the worst consequences. Like when you ask a woman when her baby's due and she tells you she's not pregnant. Now you've called her fat and it doesn't matter that you're helping carry her heavy packages. Guy is the ultimate Mr. Nice Guy, but, like some weird curse, everything he says or does tends to come out wrong. Fortunately he's found a wife who likes wounded creatures, otherwise, he'd be destined for a lonely existence of TV dinners, comic conventions and online chat rooms. His verbal diarrhea is constantly getting him into trouble. Ironically, Guy works in sales. His best friend Izzy thinks there's an easy solution...whatever Guy's instincts tell him to do, do the opposite. It's an idea that just might work, if only Guy didn't have a compulsive need to fix his mistakes. A writer for Friends takes a semi-autobiographical look at what happens when you spend your life with "foot in mouth" disease.
