Stuck in Love

Synopsis: Meet the Borgens. William Borgens is an acclaimed author who hasn't written a word since his ex-wife Erica left him 3 years ago for another man. In between spying on Erica and casual romps with his married neighbour Tricia, Bill is dealing with the complexities of raising his teenage children Samantha and Rusty. Samantha is publishing her first novel and is determined to avoid love at all costs - after all she's seen what it has done to her parents. In between hook ups, she meets "nice guy" Lou who will stop at nothing to win her over. Rusty, is an aspiring fantasy writer and Stephen King aficionado, who is on a quest to gain 'life experiences'. He falls for the beautiful, but troubled Kate and gets his first taste of love and a broken heart. A tale of family, love (lost and found), and how endings can make new beginnings. There are no rewrites in life, only second chances.

and not about being my daughter.

Yeah. Okay, well, this

is a toast... psst.

To you and your first novel.

Just Saying Hi.

Oh, it's not Just Saying Hi.

Did they make you

change the title?

No, they're not publishing

Just Saying Hi.

It's a different book.


I put that aside for now,

and I wrote a new one.


Over the summer.

What happened

to Just Saying Hi?

You were excited about that.

I was excit... I put a lot of

work and effort into that.

I proofed the manuscript

and I...

I know.

I'm sorry. I...

I... I... I thought my opinion

meant something.

It does. Dad.

You know it does.

And yet you turn around and

write an entirely new book

and don't think

to share it with me?

I'm sorry.

Something's burning.


Why would you let him set

that place at the table?

I set it.

He asked me to.

Yeah, well, she's not coming.

I'm about to head over there.

You should come.

Give Dad a chance to cool off.

I'm not going over there.


Suit yourself.

I'll tell her you said hi.

You can tell Mom

to drop dead.


This food is so good.

Glad you like it.

So how did everything

go over at your Dad's?

It was good. Sam's getting

a book published.


That was my reaction, too.

That's great.

I always thought your dad making you

and your sister keep journals was...

a little strange, but...

sounds like it's paying off.

- I can't believe it.

- Why is it's strange?

Rusty, just let that go.

No, why is it strange?

I just want to know why you

think it's so strange.

Well, it just seems like

he was forcing you

to be writers...

instead of allowing

you to choose to be.

We don't have to keep the

journals if we don't want to.

You'd have to get

a job if you stopped.

He pays us to do it so we

can focus on our writing
