Colin is a prodigy who is destined to be a genius. Colin has dated 19 girls and only 19 girls all by the name of Katherine. Every single Katherine has dumped Colin. Colin doesn't understand the science of dumping people and getting dumped, if there is a science to it. His philosophy is that prodigies master things that are already discovered and geniuses discover new things. He wants to be a genius so he begins writing a theorem on "Dumpees" and "Dumpers". He creates charts and equations on this subject and comes to a dead end and gives up. Prior to this situation his best friend Hassan comes to get him out of the house to get Katherine XIX off of his mind.
