let’s talk about how according to jake, the night of the bet was “the night that you flirted with me for 20 seconds and i became obsessed with you forever.” FOREVER, you guys. even when jake was with sophia and amy was with teddy, those feelings were always there underneath the surface.

Chris has been teaching her about the stars and planets practically since she was born, so when she heard about science camp at NASA, she couldn’t wait to go.

Because of course, she knows the truth. She knows who they really are at heart, and what they’re capable of.
