Tim Drake: Regardless, you ask why I did not greet you. Well, let us assume that I had acted as you suggest I should. Upon your approach, you would have had me gush over you?
Stephanie Brown: Naturally.
Tim Drake: You would have me point out how stunning you appear in that dress?
Stephanie Brown: I wouldn’t complain.
Tim Drake: Mention how your dazzling eyes glisten in the fireworks like burning embers?
Stephanie Brown: That would be nice.
Tim Drake: Expound on how your lips are so perfectly red that they could leave any man breathless with wonder, yet drive him to compose the most brilliant of poetry each time he recalled the moment?
Stephanie Brown: I’d be flattered for certain.
Tim Drake: And you claim you want these reactions from me?
Stephanie Brown: I do.
Tim Drake: Well, blast it, woman. If I’m stunned, dazzled, and breathless, then how the hell am I supposed to greet you? By definition, won’t I be struck dumb?
