Battle of the Sex's - Comedy

The next big boxing match is Sex vs. Intimacy. Dave and Carol have their boxing gloves on, ready to fight for what they want.  Dave wants sex more often and Carol wants more long walks and cuddling.  For Dave, intimacy equals sex, but for Carol intimacy is non-sexual closeness and shared communication.  Dave throws his "punches": "When you withhold sex, I feel unloved."  But Carol jabs back: "I feel unappreciated when you come home, sit in front of the t.v. and don't talk to me all night, and then expect me to be your "love slave." The jabs continue back and forth until they both realize that if they're willing to give a little, they may each get more of what they actually want.

Classic Miles - Comedy

Earl and Denise are having issues in their marriage so they seek the advice of the only person who can help them: a mechanic.  According to Denise, they've sought the help of a marriage counselor but since Earl only understands car lingo, the counselor wasn't much help.  Hence, the visit to the mechanic.  Earl claims his "car" sputters and jerks and won't move forward, and Denise claims that maybe the "car" wouldn't do that if Earl knew how to properly rev up the engine!  After the confused and befuddled mechanic realizes Earl is talking about his wife and not his car, things begin to make more sense.  Earl want to know if the mechanic can give the wife a major overhaul or if he should trade her in for a new model. The mechanic nicely reminds Earl that he is dealing with a classic car and that with all classic cars, they need a little tender loving care.  This skit is a humorous reminder that all marriages can use a tune-up every now and then and that sometimes we need to listen to the "engine" to find out how it's running.

Themes: Maintaining your marriage, marriage takes some work, the benefits of a good marriage relationship

Truth is, they both want something: Mike wants to go on a fishing trip with buddies, and Lisa wants a weekend away with her gal pals.  Fearing the other will disapprove, they play mind games with each other to try and get their way instead of communicating openly.   When their schemes are finally discovered and the truth comes out, they realize being open with each other is a lot easier than playing games.

Hillbilly Love - Comedy

Tom and Laura are a typical couple in love with one major difference: she's s a city girl and he's a hillbilly.  Her idea of dressing up is fine silk and pearls, and his is a pair of bib overalls with no holes. Tom definitely takes some getting used to, like all his weird sayings:  "You're purtier than a mess of friend catfish," and his idea of a beautiful fresh bouquet is barnyard grass.  But still, Laura recognizes the tender heart and good nature of the man, so she's willing to overlook some of his "absurdities."  But the final straw comes when Tom gives Laura a necklace made from the dried up kidney of a frog. Love or not, she realizes they are just too different and their relationship will never work.  But then Laura is reminded of how God directed the night Tom and Laura first met and how He knows the needs of His people better than we do ourselves.  Laura soon realizes that the differences between she and Tom are not all that far apart and that compromise, love, and God's hand will go a long way in any relationship.

Light My Fire - Comedy

When two couples set out for a night of romance in order to rekindle the fires of their marriage, they end up with two very different evenings and two very unhappy people.  Kathy has spent all day preparing for a night of romance with her husband, John, who thinks "rekindling the fires" means heading to the bedroom.  In reality, it meant she'd prepared a game that included acting out various activities like washing each other's hair, reading poetry and slow dancing. While Kathy is in heaven, John is in agony.  Rob's fate isn't much better, or so he thinks.  His wife, Dena, has arranged for them to attend a marriage seminar based on a recommendation from a man at a local bookstore.  Rob doesn't want to go but gives in to please his wife, who says it will be good for their marriage. Once they arrive, the tables are turned, however, when the Speaker announces that in order to rekindle the flames of love it's necessary to be intimate on a daily basis, prepare gourmet meals for your husband, and be sure to keep the kids busy so as to allow him a refreshing daily nap. Suddenly, Rob has found a new hero and Dena can't wait to "kill" the clerk at the bookstore.  In the end, both couples discover that while their definition of "romance" may differ, rekindling the fires of their marriage might be easier than they originally thought.

Love Me Tender - Comedy

Based on Gary Chapman's book "The Five Love Languages," this skit explores the idea that each person has different needs that must be met in their relationships.  As the skit opens we find two couples who have not been relating to each other very well.  One man seeks affirming words from his derogatory wife, while another husband yearns to be close to his wife who often feels overwhelmed by her overly affectionate husband.  The wives also seem to yearn for the kind of attention their well-meaning husbands don't provide.  When the therapist suggests a rather unconventional approach in therapy, the couples are at first jealous and enraged but soon realize the wisdom in his words.  With a little nudge in the right direction, the couples find that pleasing one another can be a lot easier than they thought, and that the benefits are worth the effort.

Themes: Marriage, relationships, compromise, speaking each other's "love language," making each other happy, thinking of other's needs
