Jon Smith (nerd alias: Captain Malcolm Reynolds from the cult TV show Firefly) asks a redhead with several facial piercings--twenty-year old Jenny Blattman, sister to Nerd Life's Will--what kind of video games she plays. Most of the dialogue, though, sounds no different from that of a typical date. People discuss work. They discuss school and the weather. In typical Michigander fashion, a man wearing a Spiderman nametag points to his hand, and the woman sitting across from him does the same, to show where they're from.
After every three rounds, there's a break to let the daters write down comments. Then Schwimmer shouts "Switch!" and the men rotate again.
