Mike Damone: First of all Rat, you never let on how much you like a girl. "Oh, Debbie, hi." Two, you always call the shots. "Kiss me. You won't regret it." Now three, act like wherever you are, that's the place to be. "Isn't this great?" Four, when ordering food, you find out what she wants, then order for the both of you. It's a classy move. "Now, the lady will have the linguini and white clam sauce, and a Coke with no ice." And five, now this is the most important, Rat. When it comes down to making out, whenever possible, put on side one of Led Zeppelin IV.

Mike Damone: First of all Rat, you never let a girl know how much you like her. When you see her, just say something casual, like, "Oh, Debbie, hi," as if you didn't care. Two, you always make the decisions. Tell her, "Kiss me. You won't regret it." Now three, act like wherever you are, that's the best place to be. Ask her, "Isn't this great?" Four, when ordering food, you find out what she wants, then order for the both of you. It makes you look elegant. For example, you would say, "Now, the lady will have the linguini and white clam sauce, and a Coke with no ice." And five, now this is the most important, Rat. When it comes down to kissing and touching, whenever possible, play side one of the Led Zeppelin IV album.*
