Humean Seduction

Description: David Hume is at a bar with Albert Camus.

Hume: "Step back Camus, let me show you some Humean Seduction."
Camus: "I don't think i need hel-"
Hume: "Just watch and learn, Camus, watch and learn."

Hume: "Hey baby, have i ever told you my theory of how reason is slave to the passions?"
Woman one: "Get lost."

Hume: "Hey baby, have i ever told you my theory of how reason is slave to the passions?"
Woman two: "Fuck off."

Hume: "Hey baby, have i ever told you my theory of how reason is slave to the passions?"
Woman three: "Leave me alone."

Hume: "Hey baby, have i ever told you my theory of how reason is slave to the passions?"
Woman one again: "You already asked me that, and i said get lost!"
Hume: "Oh, shit, sorry."

Camus: "I don't get it, you just approach every woman you see until one of them say yes? This is your big secret?"
Hume: "Of course."

Camus: "But don't you want a real connection with someone?"

Camus: "Don't you want to make a genuine love and passion? To find someone who you can love their heart and all that they are?"

Camus: "And that eventually works?"
Hume: "I mean...it hasn't worked so far, but...one day i'm sure it will!"
Camus: "To find someone who when you are with them it seems absurd to not believe in eternity?"
Camus: "Someone who when you are with them you feel alive and without them you want to die?"

Hume: "Uh...not really, no."
Camus: "Oh."

Camus: "So what do you want, then?"
Hume: "I don't know... a blonde, i guess?"
Camus: "I see."

Hume: "So what line do you use to pick up women?"
Camus: "What? I don't use a line."
Hume: "Then what do you do?"

Camus: "Are you kidding? I'm Camus, the women use lines on me."

One of the women from earlier: "Hey Camus, have I ever told you my theory of how reason is slave to the passions?"

Woman: "No, why don't we go back to your place and you can tell me all about it?"
Camus: "Sounds great!"

Hume, yelling at them as they leave together: "Hey! That's my line!"
"Just because every girl I've ever witnessed in the past has preferred Camus to me, doesn't mean they will in the future!"
