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?

The party's over boys. Move on.

Let's get a group together.

Please be respectful of the

neighbours and go home quietly.

Mace. The sidewalk

Sidewalk sale. Everything

marked down fifty percent.

Total liquidation.

Everything must go.


Love in the twenty-first century?

People can be what

they wanna be?

Any way you want it?

Any way you want it?

Love in the twenty-first century?

Good morning, Marilyn.

Though we're living

in a modern world?

I still believe in?

Baby, maybe I'm a special

girl 'cause I'm looking for?

A different kind of love?

Turn around, baby.

Not the ordinary one?

I'm trying to find?

Inhale. Come back

into ''warrior one'

A different kind of love?

And exhale. Bring the

hands to the floor...

and take your left foot

back 'downward facing dog.'

Take your right foot

up to your hands...

and breathe into

'warrior one' posture.

And exhale come into a

''warrior two' posture.

Pause here for a moment.


Did I have fun?


Did I?


Got everything?

Cell phone?





That wasn't with me last night.

I'm dying to find?

A different kind of love?

I bought this for my... girlfriend.

And, uh... you know...

It just...

It wasn't the right fit.

So what's your return...

Sir, we kind of have a policy -

There's no exchanges or

refunds on d*ldos...

or penetrating devices.

I mean, but it wasn't what we

were looking for, you know.

I understand. Maybe

you can take it home...

and use it as a dog chew

toy or a paperweight.

Thanks for coming

to the Gaybourhood.


Have a good day.


Good morning.

You're late.

I know.

Considering this is only your

second week on the job -

You sure treat it with

a lot of contempt.

Oh, don't take it personally, Zeke.

I treat all of my

jobs with contempt.

Don't expect me to last very long.

I don't.

Good morning, sir.

All purple d*ldos are on sale today.

Don't forget to buy in bulk.

It's a wonderful day

for dildo-buying.

Zeke, I had the most

incredible fourgy last night.

I just don't even

know where to begin.

Please, don't. I just had breakfast.

Zeke -

Sex can be a lot of fun.

Don't knock it.

Just because I define

myself as a gay man,

doesn't mean that I'm a whore.

I never charged a penny in my life.

Hi. Swimwear is on sale, right?.

For you, anything.

Twenty-nine dollars.

I'll take them.

These are going to

look hot on you.

Hey, don't I know

you from somewhere?

I don't know.

You look familiar, too.

Long John'

Excuse me?

That's how I entered

you in my cell phone.

We hooked up about a year ago.

I f***ed you in my bathroom.

Jesus Christ.

Right. I vaguely remember now.

Fun times.

How you been?


Long John, these

are gonna hug you...

in all the right places.

So do you still have my number?.

We should do it again sometime.

I'm flattered, but actually

I don't do that anymore.



I'm in S.C.A.

Oh I'm sorry, I

don't speak acronym.

Sexual Compulsives Anonymous

Right, hush hush.


You couldn't tell I'm

a sexual compulsive?

No. I thought you had sex

with me because you like me.

Not because you're a compulsive.

When we had sex...

I had a slip.

I never smelled anything.

Here's my card.

Perhaps we can

hang out sometime.

Yeah, but how will I know

when you're having a slip?

Oh, not for sex.

Maybe you'd like to

check out an SCA meeting?

Or a cuddle party.

Cuddle party?

How sad.

He is one of life's

cruel contradictions -

A total bottom with

a dick to die for.

And then - when he should

be going to meetings...
