Being a single man isn’t so bad. Find out why in this episode. Slow dialog: 1:16 Explanations: 3:21 Fast dialog: 15:53 Iris: I’m thinking of inviting Simone and Jerry over for dinner. Alex: This isn’t another attempt at matchmaking, is it? Jerry is a confirmed bachelor and he’s not looking to marry or become involved in a relationship. Iris: He’s not a confirmed bachelor. In this neighborhood with so many single women, he’s an eligible bachelor. Alex: You mean in this neighborhood full of old spinsters! Stop trying to set him up with one of them. Iris: How do you know he doesn’t want a relationship? Maybe he’s just shy and needs a little prodding. Maybe he has a fear of commitment and we can all help him overcome it. Alex: Maybe he just wants to be left alone by meddling neighbors and ladies on the prowl. There are many benefits to remaining a bachelor. Iris: You mean living a celibate and empty life? Alex: You’re making too many assumptions. You don’t know the first thing about his life and whether he’s happy or not. In many ways, a bachelor’s life is idyllic. Iris: How can you say that? Alex: Would any bachelor have to have this conversation with anyone, ever? Script by Dr. Lucy Tse
