Dan is a facilities manager who recently discovered a time machine invented by his father and has since been transporting himself back to the 1700s. And while he may be unpopular in the present, Dan does much better in the past, where he claims famous song lyrics and movie quotes as his own.
But Dan's actions in the past are having side effects in the present. Little does he know that a woman he met there named Deborah is actually Paul Revere's daughter, and now her father is delaying his famous ride thanks to him - which might alter the outcome of the entire American Revolution.
In order to try and make things right, Dan enlists his brilliant colleague Chris to travel back in time with him to work with Deborah to save America.
