Why would I keep some chick that didn’t text me back on my phone?
She ran up, hugged me and said she would “Love to go for coffee” with me.
There’s an overwhelming feeling of absurdity and imagination in Ansari and Young’s New York, even when self-regard and naïveté ruin the buzz, such as when a date asks him to help her pick out her next date.
Such events are quickly dispelled by a few puffs on a vaporizer and the sight of an aging Asian man enjoying an oversized lollipop.
Ansari, who also directed and co-wrote the episode, gives us just a taste of their meet-cute before she leaves with the promise that they’ll meet up when she’s back in town with her girlfriends. As Ansari sees it, romance is still thriving but to ignore the very real aide that technology serves in courtship is wildly foolish.
