“I’m pretty sure they’re cheating,” Tony says, and Bruce rolls his eyes. “No, I’m sorry, but if I’m playing Catch Phrase with my husband of forever—”
“Not forever,” Miles mutters.
“—and I am losing to a couple of high school boyfriends, that means somebody’s cheating. That’s a verifiable fact.”
Teddy reaches for the actual Catch Phrase thing that displays the words (he’s pretty sure it doesn’t have a name), but Tony switches hands to hold it far, far away. Teddy grins. “Worried that we’ll overtake your legacy?” he asks.
Bruce snickers, but Tony scowls. “Our legacy is eternal.”
“It can’t be that eternal if you’re losing to us,” Billy points out, and snatches the Catch Phrase thing right out of Tony’s hand. The first couple times he came over, he’d been on his absolute best behavior, all please and thank you and none of his usual devious wit. Teddy’d actually missed his boyfriend a little in those days. But now, six rounds into a vicious game of three-team Catch Phrase, he grins. “I think there’s a whole bunch of sayings about the old making way for the young, actually.”
Bruce snorts a laugh that sounds a little painful. Miles hides his grin in his soda. Amy giggles.
Tony glares at him. “Your adorable high school mind-link is no match for years of deep and abiding adult love,” he challenges.
Billy smirks. “Prove it.”
Another four rounds later, when they pause for a bathroom-and-snack break, Billy leans against Teddy’s side in the kitchen. “Am I being a little too, I don’t know, aggressive with your foster dad?” he asks.
Teddy smiles as he glances down at Billy, but as always, Tony beats him to the punch. “The Kaplan and Altman dream team needs to return to the living room for a beat down!” he announces as he thunders down from the upstairs bathroom.
Behind him, Bruce sighs. “I am so sorry,” he tells no one in particular.
Billy grins. “Never mind,” he says, and Teddy grins back.
