The McGill family consists of Edward & Maureen McGill and their daughter Stacey. The McGills lives in New York City for many years until Edward's job transferred him to Connecticut. After staying in Connecticut for a while, the family moved back to New York City. However, after the second move, the McGill's marriage slowly fell apart due to Maureen's spending habits and Edward's tendency to be a workaholic. After the couple divorced, Maureen and Stacey moved back to Stoneybrook.
