For The Ladies is the one-hundred twenty-second video in the lonelygirl15 video series. It was posted as a response to Foosball Battle. Jonas gives a clueless Daniel advice for another night at the bowling alley.
(Jonas is in the library.)
Jonas: Thank you for joining us. Tonight... The Danielbeast ventures out into the wilderness once again. His destination: the bowling alley. His purpose: to find a suitable mate for the African Anteater... Ritual... dance. (shakes his head)
(Cut to outside the bathroom.)
Jonas: I hear a hairdryer. This could be interesting. (knocks on the door and opens it. We see Daniel in a gold paisley shirt, ripped jeans, spiked hair, and mirror shades. Jonas starts laughing.) Oh my god!!
(Cut to the hairdryer lying on the counter, then back to Daniel.)
Daniel: (nonchalantly) What?
Jonas: What are you doing? (he pans the camera over Daniel's "getup")
Daniel: Dude, I'm gettin' ready to go out.
Jonas: What'd you say? I...
Daniel: I'm gettin' ready to go out.
Jonas: What? Could you turn your shirt down? I can't, I can't quite hear you...
Daniel: I got this out of your closet.
Jonas: I'm sorry, bro, I don't think you did, but, you know what...
Daniel: I did, dude! Why, you don't like it?
Jonas: Listen... Maverick...
Daniel: No, s--
Jonas: You can't wear this tonight, so, um... Let's go, let's go check out some other stuff, we're gonna--
(Abrupt cut back to Jonas in the library.)
Jonas: Truth is, a lot of people go there to drink, and... until a year ago... I was one of 'em. I used to go there... kind of a lot. I don't really miss anybody that I used to hang out with in that scene, and, um... I'm kind of embarrassed, actually, to be around some of 'em, 'cause... of some of the stuff I did. Y'know, I-- it's, uh, it's funny, too. Ever since I stopped throwin' keggers... y'know, none of those people have called me. (pause, for effect) Weird coincidence.
(Cut back to the bathroom door.)
Jonas: All right, round two, let's check on him, see how he's doing... (opens door. Daniel is now dressed in a dark blue dress shirt, black tie, and khakis. He says something unintelligible as Jonas reacts.) Hey, Dad! How ya doin'? (camera pans over the outfit)
Daniel: (after a moment) Are you serious?
Daniel: C'mon, the last one was too edgy, this one's good!
Jonas: How'd you, how'd you get off the island, Professor? (Daniel smiles self-consciously) Look, dude, all I saying is... look, I'm sorry, but all I'm saying is that, you go like that, you're probably gonna get your ass kicked by people in rented shoes, and you don't need that. (Daniel starts to say something, but stops, and looks away sheepishly.) I'm lookin' out for you. (Daniel closes the door, pushing Jonas out.) I'm sorry.
(Cut to library, with handheld camera pointed at the door.)
Jonas: Ah! Let's see. (Daniel comes in, wearing a tan striped polo shirt and jeans.) Oh! Yeah.
Daniel: Just regular, man.
Jonas: You know what? I like it.
Jonas: Okay, now this is very important, hit me with a line.
Daniel: You want--? (smiling) I got lines all day. Um... (cut to different shot of him) Baby, you must be from Pearl Harbor, 'cause you the bomb!
Jonas: Okay, good, but...
Daniel: (smiling wider) Yeah?
Jonas: ...could be offensive if, like, her grampa was in World War II.
Daniel: (still smiling) Okay...
Jonas: Yeah, so... (cut to new shot of Daniel) Let's work on the introduction.
Daniel: All right.
Jonas: Let's work on the introduction, so, uh... what do you got, for, like... say, "hi."
Daniel: Like... (does a Fonz-like gesture) Hey! Like that?
Jonas: N-no, not like that, like, like just... "hi," without the, without the... the "pistols."
Daniel: (seeming truly perplexed) Okay, um...
Jonas: Just a "hi."
Daniel: (over-enthusiastically) Hi!
Jonas: (chuckling) Mm... uh, why don't we just, how 'bout just a smile? You could just smile.
(Daniel does an unnatural, toothy grin. Cut to new shot of Daniel spinning "seductively," and points to the camera.)
Daniel: (even more Fonz-like) 'Ey.
Jonas: Nice moves. Hey, your cell phone works, though, right?
Daniel: Yeah, why?
Jonas: So you can call me when you strike out.
Daniel: (whispers) Oh, shut up.
(Jonas laughs as Daniel starts to leave.)
- "Professor" and Jonas's sarcastic question refer to the '60's sitcom, "Gilligan's Island."
- The African Anteater Ritual dance is a reference to the '80's movie, Can't Buy Me Love. Some clips from YouTube: 
- The original script for this video was written by Glenn Rubenstein, however, many of the jokes that made it into the final version were improvised by Miles Beckett and Yousef Abu-Taleb.
