Do you ever think about how nervous Dan probably gets when the Lester’s come to visit? Not like a bad nervous, just a “I want to please them and let them know we take good care of each other” nervous. I still think about him writing that he made sure to be on his best behavior. I can imagine him giving himself a pep talk. Telling himself not to curse, going over their favorite drinks in his head, coming up with topics for both Mr. and Mrs. Lester. Calling them Mr. and Mrs. Lester even though they’ve told him, hundreds of times, to call them by their first names or even “mum and dad.” He goes over everything so much that he’s overly polite and it annoys Phil because ‘he’d never get me a refill if they weren’t here’ and that somehow relaxes Dan and makes him enjoy doing it even more, so he just smirks at Phil when no one is looking and Phil glares and they’re in love and I need sleep.
Look at the way Karen’s hand is coming down in that gif as Frank reaches for her neck. Were they... were they holding hands for a second???
