|Panel 1: In
the Davies College common room, the Junior Fellows are having their
Hallowe'en party. We can see some of them dancing in the background. In
the foreground, Baldwin, dressed as a pirate with an eyepatch and a
hook for a hand, approaches Frankie, who is wearing a grass skirt and a
Baldwin: That is the hottest outfit in the world. Shall we dance?
Panel 2: Baldwin grabs Frankie by the wrist and pulls her out onto the dance floor. Frankie rolls her eyes.
Baldwin: You know you want to.
Panel 3: She gives in and dances with him.
Frankie: Why are you such an annoying little pest?
Baldwin: It's partly genetic and partly a learned trait.
Frankie: Then I should partly entirely reject you and partly lay the smackdown on your teachers.
Baldwin: Wholly unsuccessfully, of course.
Alt-Text: I have seen people flirting just about this aggressively, and I have wanted to shake them slowly back and forth and cry, "How the HELL do you DO that WITHOUT WANTING TO CURL UP AND DIE?"
