After getting dumped, Bernie's friend Kelly moves in. At first it doesn't go well, but eventually he starts helping out and getting along well with the kids. But soon Bernie thinks he's becoming a permanent role model for the kids, and taking Bernie's place.

The scene in which Kelly is crying and saying "I don't know what to do" and Bernie slaps him, saying "Be a man!" is a direct parody of the scene in The Godfather
(1972) in which Don Vito Corleone slaps Johnny Fontaine after the same exchange. See more
