Carl (20s/30s) – the middle brother. Grew up in the shadow of his older brother, Michael, the doctor. He has a little inferiority complex brought on by Michael. He writes a column for the Minneapolis Star Tribune newspaper.

Mom (50s/60s) – Very nice. Always putting on a happy face, her goal is to keep the peace and get through the family event without an incident. Mom’s husband (Carl Sr.), died three years ago. She’s doing her best to get over the loss and keep everyone happy.

Grandma (70s/80s) –  A real character. Grew up in a one-room house with ten brothers on a farm in North Dakota. Had a very tough life growing up. She is tough as nails and wants everyone else to be too.

Michael (20s/30s) – The older brother. The doctor. A little nerdy. Wears a bow tie. The favorite son, at least at first. He’s a little self-absorbed, a little blind to what he needs to do to keep his marriage to Jill intact.

Stacy (20s/30s) – The younger sister. Nice. Kind of wholesome midwestern innocence. Overlooked, but not angry about it.

Uncle Bob (50s/60s) – A partier. Fun-loving. Has an agenda. Everyone has a crazy Uncle Bob.

Jill (20s/30s) – Michael’s trophy wife. Emotional from being hormonal. Sometimes a little spacey. The only one who understands Grandma’s crazy sayings. Wants to make her marriage work with Michael if he can prove he loves her.
