At My So-Called High, Brian is using his telephoto lens to stalk other people instead of Angela. BVO: "I became yearbook photographer because I liked the idea that I could sort of watch life without having to be part of it. But when you're yearbook photographer, you're, like, never in the picture." The eye of the beholder has settled on the new girl, Delia Fisher, as Sharon Cherski drags her over to meet Brian. Always prepared with a slick opener, Brian says defensively, "I'm yearbook photographer. This is my job." Awkward pause. Brian should just say, "Awkward pause," whenever he's done talking, to fill the awkward pause. ["Hee. I think I might start doing that my own self." -- Sars] Sharon says, "Brian, I'd like you to meet Delia. She's new." Delia smiles a bright smile and says, "It's really nice meeting you." Right in his element, smoothly downshifting into small talk, Brian says, "Oh. Yeah. Awkward pause." Charmed, Delia says, "Maybe I'll see you around?" Brian says, "Awkward pause." Delia leaves, swooning. "Nice, Brian. Real suave," says Sharon. Only she means, like, so the opposite. Brian is confused. Sharon says, "It was pretty obvious what she was thinking." Brian is confused. Sharon says, "She likes you! Ask her to the dance!" Brian's all, "Wait, this world happiness thing?" Now Sharon's true motives are revealed, as she snarks, "It's not a 'thing.' It's a dance. Which I am trying to turn into a great dance. Which is, like, almost impossible, since apparently the idea of school spirit is, like, out the window." But Brian couldn't really care any less about the stupid dance. "Wait, so, getting back to this Delia thing." Sharon gives him the low-down on where to find Delia tonight. (She works at "Big Guy Burger." Heh.) Sharon, you little devil. The eyes of the beholder have already spun around and turned into little cartoon hearts.
