The Title: Never Enough

Part I -- Before

Our heroine confesses her past affair to a close friend, and before she knows it, she’s involved in a new affair with him.

"You've Got New Mail"

Pam receives an email message from Scott simply stating: "I want to have an affair with you." Pam recalls the pain of the past three years -- embarking on an affair with a co-worker, her husband finding out, and the aftermath as they try to keep things together. "Take it from someone who knows," she responds, "it’s not worth it." Even so, she ponders the possibility.

“Forgive Me Father, For I Have Sinned”

Over a period of several weeks, Pam and Scott meet and talk on a regular basis, sharing their stories and baring their souls. Pam tells all -- how her the affair started, the way she felt, the depression she suffered. Scott commiserates and shares his story with Pam, but they agree that having an affair with each other would be a disaster. Still, they continue to talk.

“Seventh Inning Stretch”

As summer draws to a close, Pam and Scott realize they won’t be able to schedule their weekly lunch date, and agree to meet each other at the ball game. Scott kisses Pam upon her arrival and they spend time talking and handing hands. They realize that they want to take the relationship to the next level, and separately they begin thinking about how and when they can make it happen.

“Just Put One Foot in Front of the Other”

Despite her own reservations, Pam tells Scott that her husband is going to be out of town and they make plans to take the next step. They both have second thoughts, and Pam isn’t sure whether or not it will really happen until Scott rings her doorbell at 6:00 a.m.

“In the Light of Day”

The relationship continues to develop and deepen. Scott reflects on his marriage and begins to share more of his past with Pam.

“Intellectual Intercourse”

Scott and Pam continue to take chances to be with each other, and Pam becomes frightened after a particularly intense love-making session.

“Running Scared”

The lies begin to catch up with her, and she contemplates leaving her husband. Pam continues to unravel and turns to an old college friend to unburden herself. Things cool down between Pam and Scott, and she wonders if she should end it before any serious damage is done.

“All Dressed Up and No Place to Go”

With the holidays approaching, Pam determines to make the best of things. Things seemingly cool off with Scott, and Pam rethinks her plans to leave after the New Year. All is well until Scott’s wife overhears a telephone conversation.

Part II -- After

Scott’s wife overhears a telephone conversation and suspects the affair. We start to see and hear things from Alison’s perspective. She is determined to keep her marriage intact and ultimately she does -- but at what price?

“Who Was That?”

Alison confronts Scott after overhearing his conversation with Pam. She instinctively knew it was Pam on the other end of the line, but is still shocked and stunned.

The Hook -- the affair is aided by technology; voice mail and email become an important method of communicating.
