Operation Babe Hunt is when a character makes it a mission to finally get a date. The more desperate the character is, the more elaborate a scheme the character creates to achieve this mission. It's characterized by the fact that the character is full confident that there is no way their plan could possibly fail. As nature would have it, the plan is almost always guaranteed to fail due to an unforeseen circumstance that character didn't count on. Of course, unless the character inacting the plan is already a Casanova[[hottip:*: And even then, it's not always guaranteed]], the plan may stand a chance of actually working.

  • Barney of How I Met Your Mother does these consistently in nearly every episode. His most well known example are the episodes with the Play Book.

I am going to fix this up some more with a better description and more examples.
