Step one, compliment her. Step two, find common ground. All you need is one TV show that you both watch. Step three, come bearing gifts. Step four—and this is the most important step of all, agree with everything she says. Everything.

Annette Castellano Is My Nemesis 

Danny's Girlfriends--Annette Castellano Is My Nemesis
  • Annette:I treat Daniel the way I do because he can handle it. He's tough. He doesn't need someone to take care of him.
  • Mindy:Well, I think everyone needs to get taken care of sometime, even Danny.
  • Annette:Maybe that's why he likes you so much. He finally found a strong immigrant woman tough enough to take care of him.
  • Mindy:I don't know if I would describe myself that way.
  • Annette:No, all of Danny's old girlfriends, they were little wisps of women. Fragile, always agreeing with everything I said.
