Evidently, Pete flew to Paris after the night's events and returns completely over Sharon, with a new girlfriend who speaks only French and is revealed to be extremely racist.Berg and Ashley continue to build on their relationship and finally become doctors involved in psych rotations.At the start of season three, the pizza place is abandoned entirely (hence the change in the show's title), and Berg begins his medical residency.Pete becomes a vice president of a cosmetics company, and then a firefighter.The episodes contained storylines including: Pete preparing for a presentation which Berg ruins; Berg stealing the Celtics' '81 championship banner; Sharon joining the softball team; and the story of how they all met.Because the episodes aired out of order, the season seems very disjointed---demonstrated by the status of Pete's relationship with Melissa: in episode 8 – "Party" Melissa and Pete are still together despite having previously broken up in episode 5 – "Apartment". Season 2 had a more structured basis for each episode.In the first two seasons, Berg, a slacker, works at a Boston pizza parlor, Beacon Street Pizza, with Pete.They both attend Tufts University, with Sharon, who after graduation, works as the spokesperson (or apologist) for Immaculate Chemicals.
The premiere resolves the season two cliffhanger, with Sharon answering Johnny's proposal with 'Yes, in theory,' although she is still holding out on her feelings for Pete.
Pete and Berg share an apartment, on which Peter pays the rent every month, with Berg testing experimental drugs to supplement their income.
Pete structures his life around architecture and grad school, while Sharon, their friend upstairs, works for an evil corporation that exploits the Earth's natural resources, much to her dislike.
Berg eventually decides to attend medical school and become a doctor, while Pete drops out of architecture classes to become a career counselor.
The second season also introduces Johnny Donnelly (Nathan Fillion), a jukebox repairman who starts dating Sharon, and Ashley Walker (Suzanne Cryer), a medical school classmate of Berg's who competes with him to be top of the class.
The story of season 1 centers around the pizza place.
