Dating a la Seinfeld Even Jerry and his gang saw the madness of trying to find a good date

George: I've gotten to the point where I'm flirting with operators on the phone. I almost made a date with one.

Jerry: So there's still hope.

George: I don't want hope. Hope is killing me. My dream is to become hopeless. When you're hopeless, you don't care. And when you don't care, that indifference makes you attractive.

Jerry: So hopelessness is the key.

George: It's my only hope.

(Having "the Talk" before agreeing to the blind date)

Cynthia: First of all, what does he do?

Elaine: He was in real estate. He's not working right now.

Cynthia: How come he's not working?

Elaine: He got fired.

Cynthia: Why did he get fired?

Elaine: Ah. Oh, right. Let's see. He tried to poison his boss.

Cynthia: What does he look like?

Elaine: Pardon?

Cynthia: What does he look like?

Elaine: He's got a lot of character in his face. He's short. Stocky.

Cynthia: He's fat. Is that what you're saying?

Elaine: Powerful. He can lift 100 pounds over his head.

Cynthia: Has he ever been married.

Elaine: No.

Cynthia: Has he ever been close?

Elaine: He once spent a weekend with a woman.

Cynthia: He didn't really try to poison his boss.

Elaine: Yep.
