Remember that time Ben wanted to trick Leslie by planning a bunch of gifts and giving them to her the day before their anniversary, but then, when Leslie got tied-up with her job and couldn’t be there for his surprises, instead of making her feel bad for putting her career first or pressuring her into sacrificing work for their relationship, he just took pictures of all the things he had planned and gave them to her in a scrapbook?

Ben: In my time working for the State Government, my job sent me to 46 cities in 11 years. I lived in villages with eight people, rural farming communities, college towns. I was sent to every corner in Indiana. And then I came here. And I realised that, this whole time, I was just wondering around, everywhere, just looking for you.

Leslie: The things that you have done for me, to help me, support me, surprise me, to make me happy go above and beyond what any person deserves. You’re all I need. I love you and I like you.

Ben: I love you and I like you.

That’s disgusting. And wrong. I don’t even get– why would– I’ve never had sex with anyone, anywhere. It’s none of your- you have- the nerve, the audacity, Ben is my boss, technically. And he is terrible, face-wise. And how- how- do I know, frankly, that you’re not sleeping with him? Maybe you are. Maybe you’re trying to throw me off? Hmm check and mate.
