Last weekend we looked at a cute scene for JnJ, how about one for Steve and Kayla?
This actually marks the beginning of one of my favorite stretches for Steve and Kayla, from the end of Stockholm to New Years Eve. A little bit of angst, a little bit of plot, but mostly two people growing closer and enjoying getting to know each other better.
And being sexy. Did I mention sexy?
What really makes this scene is Stephen and Mary Beth and the way they play off of one another. Simple lines like “I guess they don’t heat the hallway, huh?” and “Is that what you wanted to ask me?” become flirtatious banter.
What I love most, of course, is the exchange about the towel. The look on Kayla’s face after she says, “Do whatever you want” — how she’s daring him. But later, when he goes to answer the phone, the look drops away, and we see she was a little overwhelmed. Steve’s line, “Saved by the bell, baby,” shows that he knew it too.
On a side note, Roman and Marlena are really cute in the next scene. “Lousy timing is about four and a half minutes ago.” Hee!
