Robert Brentwood was a very proper English servant thrown into a free-wheeling American household in this sitcom about lifestyles.
Nan Gallagher was a highly successful, divorced career woman. She also happened to be co-host of the New York City TV talk show "Mid-Morning Manhattan." The other host was the unseen Reggie Philbis - a takeoff on real Los Angeles talk show host, Regis Philbin.
Nan's weekness was housekeeping - she was basically a slob around the house and desperately needed someone to put her daily life in order. Enter Mr. Brentwood, purely by accident. Though initially repelled by the thought of working for a woman, much less a woman with a child, he eventually took the challenge. Sarcastic and sometimes overbearing - but always proper, he also happened to be a gourmet cook, a meticulous organizer and was able to speak several languages - skills which proved invaluable when Nan had to entertain a diverse crowd of guests. Cubby Royce was Nan's agent.
When The Two Of Us returned in the fall of 1981 after a limited run in the spring, the name of Nan's co-host had been changed from Philbis to Cavanaugh and he was seen regularly. Reggie's ego was as big as the outdoors and he was so obnoxious that he had practically no real friends. It goes without saying - Nan and Reggie were not the best of friends off camera!
