Hmm, a little bit of a lot of different things, honestly. I've always been interested in big families. When I was young, I was a bit of a watcher who wished she were more of a participant, like Samantha in MLND. A touch of Romeo and Juliet. And this couple I saw a few years ago walking near the pond in Boston Garden. She was blond and he was dark, and they were holding hands and laughing. She slipped on the mud and fell and he pulled her to her feet, still laughing. They looked like friends in addition to being in love. Something about them stayed with me and became part of Jase and Samantha.
