[Jack leans his head back, all charm, sass and complete innocence as he
smiles at the pretty girl. Rather than putting his feet on the floor he
simply lifts them.]
Oh sorry. Didn't realize you were coming back.
Awww don't move. I came over because I wanted to meet you and it would make
all my hard work in trying to find a way to say hi a waste of time.
[Jack smiles and nods and puts his feet on the floor making sure that
nothing yucky is on her books.]
Of course I always do what a lady wants.

that in heartbeat...or two in his case."
