Samantha Goodsell

Geoff: Oh goodie! More Temper Trap! They aren’t overplayed or anything. Can’t we leave that song to “500 Days of Summer,” where it belongs?

G: I can’t help but think that her name is very James Bondgirl-esque.

G: You dirtbag. You just want to do it all for the nookie.
A: A little action? Not even a thin veil.

G: I love Rick. Chili’s. Pure class.
A: Applebees ftw. Dang you rick, you’re killing my stock in the Bees.

G: Seriously, what romantic atmosphere. If only the Dundees were being held.

G: Oh man. This guy’s “English” accent is outstanding.
A: The classic peter pan shorts and glasses. That’s believable

G: Pretty funny thing to do on a date, though.
A: Has she done this before, she seems a step behind on the blocks, which as we all know in the pirate world, means she’s dead.

G: Good thing the blinds are shut. We can’t have people knowing what goes on in there.

G: Are they rehearsing in a converted living room?
A: LOL, and second date question of the night – “Do you see a future with Rick?”

G: Must we always use the soundtrack from “Pirates of the Caribbean”? Where’s the love for “Cutthroat Island”???
A: LOL, what a climactic kiss. Video was better than most, so props for that. And I’ll agree, great date idea, especially if you find yourself with a burgundy ballet studio and some swords on your hands and nothing to do.

G: Overwrought: adj. Extremely elaborate or ornate; overdone.

Melissa Lundquist

G: My girl, Melissa! Hot, sexy, single mums!
A: Not a possibility to get some kissin in that shirt my boy, dress for success I always say.

G: I may mock salon workers/stylists, but she’s got great hair.

G: Wow. She doesn’t want to seem to dance at all.
A: Haha, she would have none of that “romantic evening” jibber jabber.

G: You gotta read the writeup, but Rick took her to Javier’s, a Mexican place of sorts. I loathe Javier’s. My old boss made us all go down there when he was in town. It’s Mexican food, people. There’s no way to justify an $18 taco. Ever. Especially in SoCal where awesome, filthy taquerias are all over the place. Sorry, I just really hate Javier’s. In fact, read my review on Yelp!

G: This was shot on an iPhone, wasn’t it?
A: Obviously, thus the coloring that makes Rick look like a beet and her look like she’s buried in makeup. Thank that apple.

A: Hymns on the Piano… this normally works.

G: Rick totally wanted some lovin’ but she wasn’t budgin’.
A: “The personality of our relationship should be more physical…. my dad taught me that…. so uh… Melissa?”

A: Oh that shirt.

A: Also, I wonder how the child comes into play, is Rick down to be a dad right out the gate? Where are these questions people!?


Geoff: Hard to say. I think Sam stands a better chance (Rick stood up for her amidst all of the scrutiny after their first date), as they seem to click better, but I just like Melissa more; probably because she’s not six.

Al: Melissa, because I feel like Samantha is gaming the system. Melissa FTW
