Then you'll serve everything

in the living room,

which I want you to decorate

like a candle-lit Amish barn.

You know, like Witness.

Alright, so you've got a

lot to work with there.

You've got a broom, you've got a rake,

a butter turner and whatever that is.

It's a mallet.

-Was that a goat?


How is this, Ray?

-This is great. Thank you.

-No problem.

Wow, you're a lucky man, Frank.

What's your secret?

It was meant to be.

There you go.

Well I'm gonna go change and wish me luck.

-Good luck.


-Hey Kelly, how are you?


Good. Thanks. So I was in the neighborhood

and I was practicing this trick.

And I was wondering can

you give me your hand

and close your eyes at the same time?


I'll tell you something that

Fozzie told me about you.



-O, okay.

Ouh! Ray! What the...

Do you wanna hear a poem I wrote for you?

It's nine pages. And It's in Portuguese.

But, I can translate.

Sounds great.

-What happened to the chicken pot pie?

-I'm sorry. I took some liberties.

Oh my God, I love the seafood.

You having a nice time?

The best.

I mean...

Who knew, right?

Right. Who knew?

And what was I thinking?

What was that about?

What an idiot.

Just because someone is handsome and

smarter and talented and generous.

I'm so happy with you.



I can't see how it could get any better.

Well, that is where you're wrong.

I told you to make chicken pot pie.

I just... I don't think

that was the problem.

Maybe I should've taken her to a

different ballet or something.

Swan Lake isn't her favorite. Romeo

and Juliet was playing in the public.

-Why didn't you tell me that?

-I thought you knew.


-Anyway, forget it. It's too late.

Here's what I think.

I think there are literally millions

of single women in the city.
