Episode transcript:

This is Dream Date number 5.


I have a question. How is that I’ve not noticed before that you are really very beautiful. I mean, you caught my eye the first time we met but… I never thought of you as beautiful, exactly. I just… I suppose I would have said that you looked nice. I like how you dress, for example. And you’re a very good height, somehow. And, OK, so it might be because I have my head in your lap right now and I’m looking up at you, which I haven’t done before, obviously. And, I mean, this is super weird for me, I am not sure what’s going on. I remember that I asked you to join me on the couch and that you slid off the back of it, where you had been perching, to sit next to my head, and that I moved so that I could lie on you like this but… Just because I remember what happened, it doesn’t mean that I understand… how it happened or… Or why it is that you are so beautiful suddenly. It’s not alcohol. I haven’t drunk anything. But it is a kind of intoxication. It’s probably not important. Oh god I want to cry. How are you doing this? I mean… I know it’s not you, exactly, but… why does it feel like this to lie here and look at you? What is it about your face? You have extraordinary hair and extraordinary eyes and extraordinary lips and can I kiss you? I say that out loud: “Can I kiss you?” And you say “Yes” but I… this feels so much more important than just a kiss on a couch. I’m going to have to find a way to talk to you about this because this is too much. This isn’t fair. This is not your fault.
