Love is like a butterfly
As soft and gentle as a sigh
The multicolored moods of love are like its satin wings
Love makes your heart feel strange inside
It flutters like soft wings in flight
Love is like a butterfly, a rare and gentle thing

Butterflies was a situation comedy by Carla Lane about a middle class family. The show focuses around the wife RIa, a housewife who had poor cooking skills, she lvoed her dentist husband Ben but she then met Leonard whcih complicated things. Things with Ben, and her grown up children Adam and Russell, were steady but rather dull and the possibility of romance with Leonard seemed a very attractive prospect as he was all the things that Ben wasn't. In the end Ria would always choose duty with Ben over excitement with Leonard despite how much it looked like things might happen between them.
