Dave: You met your wife, and excuse me if I get this wrong, and I just started twitching when I heard this, she came over to the house. You didn’t even have to leave the house.
George: I didn’t leave the house. No, no.
Dave: Oh, God.
George: No, it’s the wildest thing. A mutual friend of ours said, “I’m stopping by and can I bring my friend?” And I was like, “Of course.” I got a call from my agent who called me and said, “I met this woman who’s coming to your house who you’re gonna marry.”
Dave: So, now this was arranged by an agent, your talent agent had done all the paperwork ahead of time.
George: It really worked out that way.
George: And the funniest thing was my mom and dad were visiting, so my parents were there, and we just talked and we stayed up all night talking and then, you know, I got her email address ‘cause she was going to send me some pictures of my parents and then, we started writing and I didn’t really, I didn’t know if she wanted to go out with me. I just thought, you know, we were buddies and...
Dave: Who would, George?
Dave: Let’s be frank, who really would want to go out with you?
