    • Coop: I'm telling you, I've found you a match. he could be the man of your dreams.
      (Phoebe is listening to music and doesn't hear him)
      Coop: (taking off her headphones) Phoebe, hello. Am I making myself clear?
      Phoebe: Hello, I'm working. Do you see me working?
      Coop: Yeah, yeah, so am I. How about...Michael?
      Phoebe: Coop.
      Coop: Also happens to be the style editor at your paper no less.
      Phoebe: Which probably makes him gay, okay? I know who he is, and no thank you.
      Coop: He's not gay. Trust me, I wouldn't be setting you up with him. So why don't you go out with him, huh?
      Phoebe: Well, maybe because I don't like to date people at the work place. Did you ever think of that?
      Coop: Mm, yeah, yeah, of course I've thought about that. I think about everything when it comes to matchmaking. Besides, you met Jason at work, and Leslie, and Dex.
      Phoebe: Yeah, and those didn't go to well for me did they.
      Coop: Yeah, but not because you worked with them. It's because know, reasons. Anyway, I'm not asking you to marry the guy, just go out with him. Let me see how close I am to figuring you out. What have you got to lose, huh? Take a risk.
      Phoebe: It's just the whole process, you know? Like dating, and then opening up to someone, and then having to tell them I'm a witch, them fainting. It's just not fun.
      Coop: Ah, you are so confusing to me. I don't get it, first you tell me you don't want to date magical beings and then you don't want to date mortals. Who's left?
      (Phoebe laughs at him)
      Coop: Yeah, yeah, it's not funny. Do you have any idea how hard it is to find a match for you, Phoebe? You are a smart, successful, gorgeous woman with a great sense of humor and amazing strength. I mean look at you, you're lounging around in a tracksuit with a pencil in your hair and glasses and you're so beautiful.
      Phoebe: Really?
      (Coop gets uncomfortable)
      Coop: Yeah, yeah, you know I'm trying to see what Michael sees in you, or would see in you, if you'd go out with the guy.
      Phoebe: Okay, but what about my column, and everything Piper's going through. I mean, doesn't love pale in comparison to all of that?
      Coop: No, you don't get it, I don't know how many times I need to tell you. Love, doesn't pale in comparison to anything. It makes the world turn, and the flowers grow...Okay smart-aleck, do me a favor, just be open the next time love comes knocking, okay?
