Ted:

Do you have a date for the party yet?

Lina:

Actually, I don't ... Do you think you could help me find one?

Ted:

Hmm. What kind of guys do you like?

Lina:

Oh, I like guys who aren't too serious and who have a good sense of humor. You know, ... like you.

Ted:

OK. What else?

Lina:

Well, I'd prefer someone I have something in common with – who I can talk to easily.

Ted:

I think I know just the guy for you. Bob Branson. Do you know him?

Lina:

No, I don't think so.

Ted:

Let me arrange for you to meet him, and you can tell me what you think.

:

(Lina meets Bob Branson. Finally, Ted wants to know if he has been successful as a "matchmaker")

Ted:

So, what's the verdict? What did you think of Bob?

Lina:

Well, I was worried at first – especially when I saw that he wears not one but two earrings. I thought he might turn out to be one of those guys who are into the heavy rock music and stuff like that. You know what I mean?

Ted:

But he's just a regular kind of guy, right?

Lina:

Yeah, we got along really well!

Ted:

I just knew you'd like him.

Lina:

Yeah, I do. And he's really funny. He had me laughing hysterically during dinner. I think the people sitting next to us in the restaurant thought we were crazy.

Ted:

So are you two going to get together again?

Lina:

Definitely. In fact, we're going to a concert tomorrow night.

Ted:

That's great!
