Edith and Vern are a retired couple who have been together for 40+ years and have long since been in a routine. Edith tries to pull Vern back into a romantic mood, but he continually shuts her down. It isn't until they reprimand their obnoxious son, Derek, that they are finally reunited.


VERN Male / 61+ yrs. / Any Ethnicity. Vern is an absent-minded man in his sixties. He loves The Weather Network, the newspaper and his coffee. He also loves his wife, Edith, but isn't very good at showing it.

EDITH. Female / 61+ yrs. / Any Ethnicity. Edith is a sweet woman in her sixties. She is nostalgic for the 'good ole' days' of romance with her husband, Vern. She also loves her son, Derek, although he can be tiresome.

DEREK. Male / 31-40 yrs. / Any Ethnicity. Derek is a 35 year old video game designer who lives with two roommates. He lived at home until his late twenties when his parents finally told him to move out. He is somewhat resentful of this, but still is able to come over for a free dinner whenever they ask.
