What do I put down for references on a job application, when I don't know anyone professionally for five years?

So, I'm applying for a job through a temp agency, and one thing I need to do as part of the process is fill out a long, arduous paper application. I'm feeling okay about it, except for the references part. I don't know who to put down here, because I need to know someone for at least five years—and no relatives. I suppose I could put down my girlfriend or her parents, but I think that would be bending the rule a little bit. I can't put down any of my managers from my current part-time job, as neither of them have been there for five years.
