Lucy: “Do you realize how many candidates there are? There are 8 million people here in New York.”
Tom “Right.”
Lucy: “But half of them are women, and also, like, college students and stuff, it’s like they’re not eligible.”
Tom: “And you still say it’s difficult?”
Lucy: “There are four million men, and then there are those over 20 years old…”
Tom: “Yes, that’s right. You have to be an adult.”
Lucy: “And yet, under 40.”
Tom: “Sexy.”
Lucy: “Now we’re up to about a million people.”
Tom: “Now you’re talking about a million targets.”
Lucy: “But another half of them are married and 10% are gay. They have college degrees, they’re not ubiquitous…”
Tom: “So that’s your potential boyfriend.”
Lucy: “No. So, you’re taller than me, and you like children…”
