He knew his plumpness was the main cause of his misfortune so he tried to lose weight but he was not very persevering !
Garcia started courting women :
As he spent lots of time in the tavern, Sergeant Garcia quite naturally found the se˝oritas who work there very attractive.
episode I-19 : "-Hey Clara, later when you finish work, then will you sit with me for a little while ? -I WILL NOT SIT WITH YOU NOW. I WILL NOT SIT WITH YOU WHEN I AM FINISHED, NOT TOMORROW NOR THE DAY AFTER. FOR THE LAST TIME, I WILL NOT SIT WITH YOU AT ALL! "
Then, he courted middle-class women with the hope of appeasing other ambitions (see "To Become Comandante")...
episode I-17 : "- But it's very simple : 2 steps to the left, 2 to the right, and 2 to the left again... now, you can remember that? -Oh si I can remember but my feet, they cannot ! "
(See "To become an Haciendado")... but, he went for it in a very awkward way !
episode I-32 : "- Se˝orita, how does it happen that a young lady of your obvious talents has managed to avoid matrimony ? -I may having married once but I found out fortunately in time that the caballero in question was more interesting in my money than in me . - Oooh, the scoundrel ! (...)"
No hope is still lost, and who knows, it is perhaps during one of Garcia's trip (in Monterey) that he will finally find the perfect woman.
