Their teenage son, Ricky, obsessively films his surroundings with a camcorder, keeping hundreds of recordings on video tapes in his bedroom. He also deals marijuana, using a job as a part-time bar caterer to keep it a secret from his father. Having previously been forced into a military academy and a mental hospital, Ricky is subjected by Col. Fitts to a strict disciplinarian lifestyle. Jim Olmeyer and Jim Berkley, a gay couple who live nearby, welcome the family to the neighborhood; Col. Fitts later reveals his homophobia when angrily discussing the incident with Ricky.
