Dina D’Angelo: Oh, you’re SUCH a good friend! [ to the audience ] You know — DJ Terry has asked me out ELEVEN times! And each time I’ve said “No.” Not because I don’t think he’s a super cool dude, but because I know that he and I are BETTER OFF… SINGLE!!!

DJ Terry: It really IS better! [ he lowers his pitch and frowns ] You’re amazing.

Dina D’Angelo: Okay! So who hates Valentine’s Day? BOOOOOO!!! Right? Well, you don’t have to hate it… any MO’! Just do what I do ladies: Get yo’ white wine, draw yo’ bubble bath, and spoil… yo’self!

Dina D’Angelo: Oh! Okay! Uh — that just happened! Damian — let’s talk VJ desserts for one.

Damian Cryer: Certainly. Dina — what is THE most decadent, luxurious, and arousing food?

Dina D’Angelo: Oh! I don’t know!

Damian Cryer: Well, it’s, uh — it’s chocolate. Isn’t it? Could you taste, please?

Dina D’Angelo: Oh!

Damian Cryer: Hmm? Is that a sin?

Dina D’Angelo: Oh! We’re having a BLAST on “Livin’ Single”! Huh? Give us a BEAT, Terry!

Dina D’Angelo: Okay… Why are my hands shaking?

Damian Cryer: Because we’re making something, aren’t we?


Damian Cryer: Right! Well, uh — we skipped a few steps, but here’s what the finished product will look like.

[ Damian reaches down and lifts a plate with a chocolate cake heart on it ]
