LUBBOCK, Graham & Elizabeth
(Just the Two of Us)
(555-3273
Eureka, CA

Graham is the athletic director and coach at St. Augustine's Catholic High School for Boys. He is bald, rotund and coaches The Hippos, St. Augie’s football team. To makes ends meet, Graham works at Burger Barn under the alias "Mitch." Elizabeth is a homemaker and volunteers at the local food bank. Her job is to raise the kids, milk the cow, feed their dog [Hooter] and remind her husband that he needs to lose a few pounds.

The Cast of JUST THE TEN OF US
 

Married in 1970, Graham and Elizabeth now have a family of eight. They include Marie, 18, the eldest who wants to be a nun; Wendy, 17, and sister, Cindy Anne, 16, who are both boy-crazy; Constance "Connie", 15, who wants to be a journalist; Sherry, 11, who is the brainy one in the bunch; Graham, Jr. "J.R." who is a Freshman at St Augustine’s and unlike his dad is not very athletic (and this causes Graham some concern); and the twins Harvey and Michelle [and later baby Melissa] round out the brood. Father Robert Hargis arranged for all the Lubbocks to attend St. Augie’s even the girls. Now all the coach had to do is to keep all the boys in the school away from his daughters.

To display their talents Marie, Wendy, Cindy and Connie formed a rock group called “The Lubbock Babes” that performed at Danny’s Pizza Parlor.

The Lubbock’s used to live in Long Island, New York where Graham worked as a coach at Dewey High School until he was fired. Mike Seaver, the son of Dr. Jason Roland Seaver was one of his students.


SOME LUBBOCK - ISMS

Elizabeth: Why can't you go out with nice normal boys?
Wendy: They don't have money.

Marie: All you care about is hairy men who buy you things.
Wendy: Is that so terrible? I don't think so.

Cindy: Beer isn't good for you, Daddy.
Graham: Neither is having eight kids

Pruitt: Did you ever kill anyone with a spatula?
Coach: No...
Pruitt: Then welcome to the Burger Barn family

Marie: Long, curly hair? Dad?
Elizabeth: Oh, yes. Honey, he didn't start losing his hair until after Cindy and Wendy were born.

Cindy: Can't I show a little cleavage?
Marie: Cindy, you don't have a "little" cleavage

Connie: Will you help me? I'm desperate!
Howie: I will if you kiss me on the lips.
Connie: I'm desperate, not stupid

Marie: Who's to say there's not a planet somewhere where cows run things, where they cook and clean and go to the office, where cows wear the clothes and it's humans who are kept naked in wild herds to mate willy-nilly, panting and heaving and grunting... I lost my point.
Wendy: Not to mention your mind.

Connie: Wendy, what's it like to be so desperately shallow?
Wendy: It's not bad, actually.

Elizabeth: Honey, where are your sisters?
Sherry: They're at the library studying.
Graham: The library?
Sherry: I just report the lies. I don't make them up.

Theme Song Lyrics

Life is a race
And I know I can win it,
Cause I'm learnin' the rules of the game.
If I could stay on the ball
Take it minute, by minute
I just might make the hall of fame
What can I say?

I'm doin' it the best I can
Leavin' out the bottom again
Oh, I'm seein' it from where I stand
Nothin' comes easy.

Oh, I'm only bringin' home second places
At the end of every one of my days
Look out because all that is changin'
We'll keep on doin' it the best we can
Yeah

Doin' it the best I can
We'll keep on doin' it the best we can
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh
