''Singles'' is an ensemble comedy set in {{Seattle}} in the early 1990's. Steve Dunne meets Linda Powell at a club, and they hit it off. The ups and downs of their relationship are contrasted with those of Steve's friend (and ex-girlfriend) Janet Livermore, who is increasingly frustrated with how aloof her boyfriend, lead of proto-grunge band named "Citizen Dick" Cliff Poncier, acts towards her. With some running threads about other friends, it shows the ups and downs of relationships for Generation X in the pre-dot-com era.

It's very much an UnintentionalPeriodPiece and love letter to both Seattle, and the early alternative rock/grunge scene, written and directed by Creator/CameronCrowe.

** Later in that same sequence, Debbie tells Steve and the others, "I'm telling you, that girl doesn't want you tugging at her bra strap. She wants drama, she wants mystery, she wants excitement," and we immediately cut to Linda, who says, "I don't want drama, I don't want excitement, I just want to trust (Steve)."
