Morris Plains is a borough located in Morris County, New Jersey. As of the 2000 census, the borough had a total population of 5,236.

Billed as "The Community of Caring", Morris Plains is a small town where social people soon get to know everyone else, which can be simultaneously heartwarming and irritating. Teenagers sometimes refer to it as "the Bubble", presumably because it is in many ways a stereotypical idyllic suburb, i.e. there is little for teens to do, and everyone is upper middle class, so life in Morris Plains does not reflect "the real world". The cops always harrass teenagers because they have nothing to do in the tranquil town.

The main attraction in Morris Plains is Arthur's, a restaurant located on Speedwell Avenue, Morris Plains's "Main Street". Arthur's is famous throughout the area for its steaks, and is of absolutely no interest to vegetarians. Teens driving through the town are likely to stop at Quick Chek, a conveniently located 24-hour convenience store, where they can buy soft drinks and sandwiches, and then stand around in the parking lot and talk.

When Morris Plains teenagers wish to be entertained, and they are tired of hanging out at someone's house, there are few options. Some kids like to walk around the woods and parks that are plentiful in Morris Plains, although the woods are gradually giving way to housing developments, and the police often view teenagers in the woods with suspicion. One popular destination is Greystone, a partially abandoned insane asylum. The abandoned buildings are full of artifacts, as if everyone just ran out the door one day and left everything behind. Some go to explore, take pictures, and bring back souvenirs, while others simply want to drink and smoke. Unsurprisingly, adventurers of both kinds are often picked up by the police. A slightly less risky activity involving Greystone is to drive through it slowly at night, with your headlights off. This plunges you into total darkness, since the abandoned buildings do not have lights. Greystone is technically in Parsippany, but the nearest houses are in Morris Plains, and as the municipal boundary is not obvious, most people think it is in Morris Plains.

The other popular activity in Morris Plains is departing from it. As local band Optimus Prime put it in their humorous song Morris Plains, "they've got a train station so people can leave!" Indeed, the train station is popular, as many people commute into New York City for business and pleasure. Otherwise, people go to Morristown next door, where the shops and restaurants, the movie theater, and the high school are all located (the Morris Plains school system only goes up to grade 8).

Morris Plains is also a major base of operations for Pfizer, which has a large complex that creates jobs for a few thousand workers. The plant belonged to Warner-Lambert before it was bought out by Pfizer, and it now attracts twice as many helicopters as it did before. Pfizer also sponsors the Health and Medical Science Academy at Morristown High School and has a annual 5k race around Morris Plains.
