She muses that she enjoys her life in the city especially the theater and that a suburban family would kill her from tedium, but wonders if she is rationalizing why she remains single.

Karrie begins looking back at all the frogs she has seen over the years to ascertain if somehow blind ambition made her miss Price Charming. Could he have been in her Jewish neighborhood in Queens, up in the Catskills, perhaps in Los Angeles, or in Manhattan? However, assessing the pack she thinks men might better have served as frog legs as each were lacking.

Though somewhat inane, fans will enjoy Karrie's look back at career dating and the other male losers that populated her life. The tale is more a series of short vignettes than a story line as Karrie thinks back over the past fifteen plus years to a weird bunch in which as she claims Kramer would have been a better date. Fans who enjoy a lighthearted romp in which the protagonist encourages men to leave will laugh with Laurie Graff's apt YOU HAVE TO KISS A LOT OF FROGS.
