Would you believe my luck? The first time in my life I have a good answer to the question, ‘What do you do?’ and I have a girlfriend. I mean, you don't need a girlfriend when you can answer that question. That's what you say in order to get girlfriends. Once you can get a girlfriend, you don't want a girlfriend, you just want more girlfriends.
George bemoans the fact that he has a girlfriend at the very moment he has the sort of status that can get him girlfriends.
