I stumbled upon some conversation on the TV show Desperate Housewives (Season 4, Episode 10) and I do not understand what the "nines" and "a three" indicate in the following context.
Well, then you just have to fix him up with someone. Give him back his will to work.
Yeah, about that. Most of our friends are nines, and Walter, we love him, but, kind of a three. And in the gay world, three does not go into nine.
Well, we'll just have to find him someone who's not good at gay math.
