Idiot. Hell, no, I won't marry you. Gosh!

What would you do if you

were in a situation like this?

Gosh! Gosh! Gosh!


Dear diary, I had that nightmare again.

I fear I'll never get married.

Maybe I am destined to be

a sad old spinster...

whose only companionship

comes from an absurd amount of cats.

No, that won't be me.

I believe in true love.

My knight in shining armor

is out there somewhere...

and I'm gonna find him.

Ooh. Mmm.

Oh, sh*t.



- Opah!

- Hi, Dad.

Look here, Julia.

When you gonna find a man and get married?

You lookin' old, fat and saggy.

And that mole on your forearm,

it's growing a mole.

Let's put some hummus on it.

It cures everything.

Baby, you gotta find a man.

In our race to protect

our Greek heritage-

Yes, yes, yes.

And my heritage too.

Let us not forget

you are also one-half Indian.

- Your mother's right.

- Big sister, we also Japanese.

- And Jewish.

- So you're telling me...

I have to marry a guy

who's a Greek Indian Japanese Jew?

Baby, you're actin' like that's hard to find.

Look around.

They everywhere.

Nicky. Nicky!

You're Greek, right?

Yeah. And Indian

and Japanese and a Jew.

Huh? You wanna

go out with my daughter?

Nah. I don't like redheads.


Dad, I know I'm no beauty,

but I'm not gonna settle.

I respect our heritage,

but I believe love is blind.

Somewhere out there is my true love.

No! Back to work.


- More coffee?

- Excellent.

Jolly good.

I quite fancy some...

more coffee, actually.

Pick up.

- Pick up! Pick up!

- Okay.

- Pick up!

- I'm coming.

Oh, hell, no!

- You're Hitch?

- You got a problem with that?

Please, I'm desperate.

Even I can't help you,

and I found Star Jones a husband.

Aw, sh*t.

Come on in.

Thanks for seeing me.

I heard you're the best.

You're goddamn right I'm the best.

Look at all the couples I'm responsible for.

You got Brad and Jen...

Jessica and Nick,

Ben and Gwyn...

Ben and Jen, Ben and Jen...

Ben and Matt,

Whitney and Bobby...

Kobe and Shaq,

Ellen and Anne.

Yeah, I do them too.

Well, there's this guy

at the diner where I work.

- We had this... moment.

- What happened?

I turned around, and he was gone.

He probably got a good look

at your mug and ran.

Why don't we broaden the search

from that one guy to just any nigga?

- Okay.

- Eight out of ten guys believe...

the first kiss will tell them everything

they need to know about a relationship.

So before we get started,

let's see what you got.

Ooh, stinky. You got the dragon.

You got a little somethin' in there.

A whole wing?

Extra crispy? Goddamn!

Good gracious!

Off of me, trick!

What, are you hungry?

I'm hopeless.

I'm never gonna meet

my Prince Charming.

I got it!

A reality dating show?

Says here you can meet

the man of your dreams.

It also says you have to be beautiful.

Well, you're beautiful-ish.

Oh, come on, Hitch.

The only way I could get on that show

is if you magically turn me into a princess.

Let's roll.

Let's roll.

Yo, fellas!

Time to pimp her out.



Hey! Hey!



You're officially pimped out.

All right, girl.

Now you're good to go.

Ladies, good evening,

and welcome to...

The Extreme Bachelor:

Desperate Edition.

By the end of tonight's episode,

one of you lucky ladies...

will be chosen by the bachelor

to go on a dream date.

- So let's meet him.

He's a doctor with a 12-inch cock.

Ladies, may I introduce the bachelor.

- Hi. Lovely to meet you.

- Hi.

- Hello. I'm Grant. Hi.

- Hi.

- I'm Grant.

- Hi, Grant.

Nice to meet you.

- I'm Julia.

- Pleasure.
