It's not uncommon to hear a a spouse rant that they can't stand the sight of their partner. Brad Garrett and Elizabeth Perkins, the said parents in ABC's "How to Live With Your Parents (For the Rest of Your Life)," have found that to be true in a different manner.
"I can’t even look at him half the time because just looking at him makes me laugh," Perkins said of her 6-foot, 8-inch comedian co-star, best known for playing Robert Barone in "Everybody Loves Raymond."
It's a sentiment, that when relayed to Garrett, naturally elicited a good ol' comedic comeback.
"That’s not very nice," he said in his trademark deep voice on the set of the new Wednesday comedy. "I’ve done all I can. I've had a lot of work done recently. It's funny, my dentist has told me the same thing. I'm starting to get a complex. Well, you know, I can't look at her without getting aroused."
In "How to Live With Your Parents," which was created by and based the life of Claudia Lonow, Garrett plays Max, a kooky stepfather who along with his wife Elaine (Perkins) see their empty-nest happiness side-swiped by daughter Polly (Sarah Chalke), who returns home to live with them along with her young daughter.
