Love Is a Four Letter Word

Synopsis: Divorce lawyers Kenton 'Ken' Rhodes (recently moved in from Chicago) and Emily Bennett have a healthy but cynical mistrust of marriage from ample professional experience. They first meet and are attracted at the wedding of Ken's buddy since college, Lawrence 'Larry' and her sister Elisabeth 'Betsy' Showalter. Then they meet again in the divorce court where Ken's wealthy, retired client Martin Harper is expected to be cleaned out over a futile quarrel by her client, Margot 'Marge', Martin's former secretary, after thirty years of marriage and pointless 'mediation'. Which of these three couples will make it? And what about the unethical conflict of interest?

to learn how to top -

He decides to stop

having sex all together.

Double sad.

I don't see what's sad about

someone realizing they have...

a problem, and trying to

do something about it.

Seeing all these grown

up men spending...

all their time trying to

get laid, now that's sad.

Oh Zeke, please.

There's a lot of important

stuff happening out there.

Issues that we need to fight for...

Civil rights,

Discrimination, equality, marriage.

Well I don't see you

out on the barricades.

You're working here with me

here, peddling rubber dick.

Now why is that?

This is just temporary.

Hey Marilyn.

Oh Peter. Peter.

Guess what?


Who's getting married?

I am.

Bart asked me to marry him

this morning. I'm engaged.


My God, that's awesome.

Did you guys set a date?

We're thinking mid-September.

There's just so much to do.

Oh Peter. I am so excited for us.

You and Derek moving in together

and me off to get married.

It really goes to

show, you, you know -

Dreams do come true.

Congratulations, Bart.

Bart, sit down over here...

so we can discuss the

wedding invitations.

Not your department?.

I thought so.

Leave us alone then.

Kissy Kissy.

Kissy Kissy.

Men - it's never too late

to teach them new tricks.

Anyway, it might be a

bit premature, but...

I've started working

on a seating chart.

Let me get your input.

This is huge.

Maybe this would be a good

time to go over some rules.

What kind of rules?

I would just hate for us to fight...

about the small stuff,

you know, like...

...who's turn it is to do the dishes,

and taking out the

garbage and stuff.

And then there's the

toilet seat issue.

You know how much

that bothers me.

Maybe we could put up a sign,

you know, to remind me.

I'm serious.
