Cast and characters

Main

  • Brian Stepanek as Tom, the father of the Harper family quadruplets. It is a running gag in the series that he cares more about his possessions than his children, but he loves his family and is a kid at heart.
  • Allison Munn as Anne, the mother of the Harper family quadruplets who usually gets caught up in Tom's new obsessions.
  • Aidan Gallagher as Nicky, the youngest of the Harper quadruplets. He is shown to be quite comedic, quirky, and easily confused. It is shown that he is a talented chef.
  • Casey Simpson as Ricky, is the second oldest of the Harper quadruplets. He is the smart one of the group, always seen carrying a book or doing his homework. He is also a neat freak and a bit of a goody two-shoes, though he occasionally tries to prove to Dawn and his brothers that he can bend rules as well.
  • Mace Coronel as Dicky, the third oldest and easy-going Harper quadruplet who cares a great deal about his appearance. He always takes the easy way out. He ships himself to Australia in "Quadcodile Dundee".
  • Lizzy Greene as Dawn, the oldest of the Harper quadruplets. Although she's always seen bothering her brothers, she does care about them deeply. There is a consistent rivalry for the leader spot of the quads between her and Ricky.
  • Gabrielle Elyse as Josie (season 1), a worker at Tom's sporting shop and babysitter for Nicky, Ricky, Dicky and Dawn.
  • Kyla-Drew Simmons as Mae (recurring, seasons 1–2; main, seasons 3–4), the quads' friend and Dawn's best friend. She often calls herself "the fifth quad".
