I sent her the top

20 dating ice-breakers.

Top 20?

I thought it was

supposed to be top ten.

I know, right?

If there's that

much ice to break,

maybe you shouldn't

be on a date.


Hey, come here.

The Cyan

[Both] Wintersports 820.

Are you getting

that for your trip?

I wish.

It's a little steep on

an assistant's budget,

but a girl can dream.

Well, you could get the 620.

All the bells and whistles

for half the price.

Hmm, that's not a bad idea.

Maybe we hit up the

store before the party?

If we ever get out of here.

I really wish you were coming

snowboarding this weekend.

Yeah, I've learned my lesson

on making plans around here.

Every time I book something,

Diane sends me

another assignment.

Don't I know it.

Do you think she's read it yet?


There's only one

way to find out.

(light orchestral music)

Diane, if now's not

a good time, I--

Now is always a good time

for my favorite writer.

What do we have?

Oh, "Top Twenty

Dating Ice-Breakers."

Love the headline.

Yeah, thank you

For that.

You shouldn't feel undermined

because I write the

headlines in advance, Cara.

It gives the magazine--

A consistent voice?


You were listening.

I like it.

Oh, but you don't love it?

I want to, but it

needs a bit more pizazz.

You know, maybe a cautionary

tale of a date gone wrong.

Don't underestimate the

value of your own personal--

Dating horror stories?



(light orchestral music)

You're out there in

the singles world.

I mean, let's see that.

Actually, I started

seeing someone


Very recently.

Perfect, so I'm sure

you have some material.

Oh, I would but, the thing

is, it's going pretty well

and I was thinking,

with the New Year's

maybe I could try to

keep my personal life

a little bit more--


Um, as I recall, you asked

to be on the relationship desk.

But, I mean, if it's too much,

we can always put you

back on the beauty desk.

No, uh, no.

I will make it better.

Cara, make it

better next year.

It's New Year's.

You guys should

be out having fun.

[Both] Really?

Yeah, really.

Don't come home till

the sun comes up.

And then, you know, start

thinking about that re-write.

Happy new year.

(upbeat orchestral music)

Okay, how about this one?


Amazing because it's amazing

or amazing because we took too

long buying your snowboard?

Can't it be both?

We're never gonna make it

across town before midnight.

Oh, why don't we go to

Jesse's rooftop party.

He lives just a

couple blocks away.

I told you I can

not go to Jesse's.

We've only been dating 3 weeks.

It's too soon.

You know, the old Cara

would've gone in a heartbeat.

Exactly, but the

new Cara is careful,

aware that holiday

parties are synonymous

with romantic expectations.


You know that sounds

like one of your articles.


Oh shoot.


What's this?


[Megan] Nothing?


It's from Berkeley.

It's the grad program in

creative writing you applied to.

Maybe you got in.

Don't jinx it!

Don't you want to open it?

Oh, no no no no.

I can't.

You do it.


Well, it looks like you're gonna

be bringing in the new year

with a bang.

- Oh!

- You got in!

Oh, I'm so happy for you.

I'm kinda dying to tell Jesse.

Well, then let's hit

up that rooftop party.

Let's go.

(funk music)

I just can't believe I got in.

Well, I can.

I edited the first fifty pages

of that mystery you sent in

and I'm still dying

to read the rest.

Well, you might get your wish
