INT. COFFEESHOP - DAY
RICK is sitting reading a newspaper. As he sits, MINDY comes in with a cup of coffee and a book and sits down across the restaurant from him. RICK looks up and is startled to see her.
for a bit, then start to work your magic.
Aw, no. He's staring again.
Okay, good start. Here we go.
Solid. I think that went really well.
Okay, get the ball rolling, man. Show some confidence.
She's eating out of your hand. Make your move.
Okay, don't look up anymore. It only encourages him.
Oh, please, no.
Okay, be careful here. You don't want to give it all away at once. Even
the world's studliest stud's got to know his.. uh... limitations.
Okay, Rick, time to read the body language. I'm pretty sure
she's trying to send me a message.
This is the position campers use to ward off mosquitoes at night.
Please get the picture.
C'mon, Rick. Great lovers like Casanova could read a girl
like a book. Every little detail means something. Now focus!
Do not come over here.
Go with your gut, Rick. It's time to engage.
I'm off to a rough start.
Please let that be the sound of him leaving.
Oh, crud. Oh, crud.
Please have something to say. Please do not just stand there.
What are you doing? Have a plan, always have a plan!
A witty first line! An offer to buy her a drink! Something!
This might actually be the most awkward moment of my life.
Say something! Anything! Quickly! Don't just stand there
looking hot! Do something!
I wonder if I made a run for it if I'd make it to the door before
he caught me.
New plan! Evasive action!
That was the most uncomfortable event I have ever witnessed.
It was like watching a Chihuahua trying to hit on a Great Dane.
RICK stands outside, freaking out.
What the heck, man? What happened? You had it! It was
there! All systems go! The light was on in her eyes! And you
blew it! Blew it! Struck out looking! You loser! Stupid, stupid,
stupid, stupid, stupid, aw, c'mon! C'mon! You loser!
Aw, who you kiddin' man? You still got it.
