Howard meets Summer Glau on a train and wants to ask her out. But she is not very impressed with him.
Howard: Okay, here’s another one. If you married the famous rock guitarist Johnny Winter, you’d be Summer Winter.
Howard: Okay, I’m going to just go for broke here and say I like you.
Howard: So here’s my question, do you realistically see any conversational path that would take us from where we are right now to a place where I could ask you out and you’d say yes?
Howard: Fair enough. I’ll leave you in peace.
Summer: Thank you.
Howard: But before I go, would you mind if I just take one picture of us together for my Facebook page?
Howard: Okay. Great. Now, can I take one where it looks like we’re making out?
