or lessons in the ultimate pick-up lines, you can always count on "Three's Company" reruns. Watch Larry Dallas slither up to some fox at the Regal Beagle – gold chains caught in his chest hair – and whip out something that will make her swoon: "Baby, you have more legs than a bucket of chicken."

Okay, maybe not. But tools for a successful single life are really quite simple: charm, personality, a sense of humor ... and killer pick-up lines.

Face it. He or she walks by and you've only got seconds to come up with the magic words to land that hottie. Andy Kohen, a junior at California State U., Northridge, actually got lucky with his pick-up line. He asked one girl, "Do you have any Persian in you?" When she said no, he asked, "Would you like some?" Kohen says the girl found the line amusing, and they spent the rest of the night laughing, talking and, ahem, getting to know each other.

See if you can, ahem, get to know a few babes using our list of cheesy one-line wonders.

  • I may not be Fred Flintstone, but I bet I can make your bed rock.

  • If I could rewrite the alphabet, I would put U and I together.

  • Let me check the tag on that shirt. I need to see if it says, "Made in heaven."

  • Is your father a thief? I was wondering who stole the stars from the sky and put them in your eyes.

  • Hey baby, it's my birthday. I'm the cake and you're the candles. Wanna party?

  • I seem to have misplaced my phone number. Can I have yours?

  • Someone call Heaven quick! Tell the Big Guy an angel is missing.

  • You might not be the best-looking girl here, but beauty is only a light switch away.

  • If you were a new hamburger at McDonalds, you would be McGorgeous.

  • Let's play house. You be the screen door and I'll slam you all night long!

  • Your body's name must be Visa, because it's everywhere I want to be.

  • Are you Windex? Because I can see myself in your pants.
