Chris Pratt gives his famous friends Super Hero names [x]
Go on, tell them I ate your homework. They’ll never believe you.
Emily Vancamp as Sharon Carter in “Captain America: The Winter Soldier”
Here’s an example of what we call a “soft no”. Sharon turns down Steve’s offer in a way that’s meant not to insult him but never actually uses the word “no”.
Steve clearly gets the message, though, and importantly offers to leave her alone. Sharon’s comment afterwards gives him an opportunity to try again later, but he doesn’t press and respects her rejection of his company even though it’s probably hurt his feelings a bit.
Just in case you ever wonder “What would Captain America do?”; there you go.
i also thought this was interesting because it reveals something about the subtleties of sharon’s job as an espionage agent, the particular social skills she needs. she has to keep steve close, so that she can keep an eye on and protect him, so when she unexpectedly comes into contact with him, she takes the opportunity to make friendly, just-this-side-of-flirtatious conversation. of course, regardless of whether she’d be interested in seeing him socially or romantically (and i don’t think the movie gives us any real clues as to whether she is or not; sharon’s not quite the cipher natasha is, but she has a pretty good poker face), she know that she can’t pursue it, because it would be a conflict of interest in terms of her job as a spy. and she deals with the situation with a great deal of finesse.
i thought it was pretty impressive on a number of levels.
Sometimes i forget scallops swim like this its hilarious
I THOUGHT THAT ONLY HAPPENED ON SPONGEBOB
