Why am I not seeing anything about that deleted scene with Holtzmann making terrible puns, Abby being used to it and kinda proud, Patty glaring at her and Erin straight up saying “I can’t..” and leaving while Holtz just keeps going; until Patty’s beautifully savage “how about you bury all those jokes in this hearse and take it to the graveyard”. Because this scene is truly iconic and really show their different characters and it’s just hilarious.

I am so sorry, @louezem. I was trying to get this done in time for your birthday, but that didn’t happen. Hope you don’t mind this being a few days late. :-)
Also, I wrote a canon compliant piece for this word already, you can find it HERE if you’re interested. But it fit so well with the direction the firefighter story was headed I figured what the hey! I can write for the same word twice.
Part 6 - Mamihlapinatapei: The look between two people in which each loves the other but is too afraid to make the first move.
Field one is like another planet. Extra bleachers have been set up, and although I spot Rue and a large group of her friends as well as a handful of other students and teachers, there are so many more in the full to bursting stands who are complete strangers to me. Unlike at the other fields, the small announcer’s booth is full and in use, music playing through the speakers. There’s a tent set up behind the firefighter’s dugout, selling the calendars and promoting volunteer work at the Twelfth and Oak Soup Kitchen, the charity group that receives the proceeds from the sales this year. As I watch, a woman who’s just purchased a calendar calls out to Mr. July and screams that she loves him. He blows her a kiss through the wire fencing of the dugout while her friends fan themselves.
