Claire, you're such a ruiner!

CLAI RE:

She could poke an eye out.

We just... we have to decode

his body language.

- ( groans )

- Look, it's fine.

I mean, if

he's into her,

he'll shake his hair,

stretch his arms

- and flex those muscles.

- Yeah?

( chuckles )

Wha-What was that?

Fingers. That was fingers

through the hair.

I mean, technically,

that wasn't shaking.

- RAY:
Yo...

- I can't look anymore.

- You...

- Sorry!
