Matt Doran: "Some of these women have actually already handed you out their physical address." Chris Powers: "Yeah.

"He said he was moving here so I would never meet up with someone who was from out of town.Doran: "What you've done is walk into a room with a complete stranger that you've never seen. Just staying for a couple of nights." Even Powers couldn't believe he'd talked Hazel into coming straight to his room. I just walked right into the elevator, walked right up."
