    we are Ozzie and Harriet

    In Fight Club, an American movie, an narrator said, "Most of the week, we are Ozzie and Harrie".

    The next scenario is not directly relevant to the above words. He was living with a man. They enjoyed physically fighting each for some psychological pleasure.

    I just learned there's another well-known American movie named The Adventures of Ozzie and Harriet. Could you tell me what kind of life Ozzie and Harriet had. Or what did the narrator mean in this context?

    Thank you!

    Ozzie and Harriet were a typical American husband and wife except they had no marital problems.

    Ozzie and Harriet was a TV show in the 1950s. The perfect world that they inhabited is supposed to be the ideal of post-war (WWII) American suburbia.
