“It’s not gawking,” Darcy protests, swatting at Jane’s hand. “It’s reconnoitering.”
“Yes, Jane. Reconnoitering.”
There’s a second of silence and then Jane sighs and shakes her head. “You’ve been hanging out too much with Clint.”
Or the one where Darcy tries to snoop on a newly arrived Bucky Barnes to see where he falls on the sane-to-crazy scale.

“Do you know what they used to do to betrayers in the past, Darcy?” Clint doesn’t wait for her to finish, or to properly process her complete and utter dread at him calling her by her first name. He continues on, easing a few steps closer, engaging, as he does, in an epic villain monologue with surprising ease. “Tar and feathering. The first use of it allegedly occurred during the Crusades, from Richard the Lionhearted. They did it during the American Revolution too. And in both World Wars. Think of that. For over eight hundred years, people have been tarring and feathering no good, low down, dirty traitors. Now, I can’t use tar against you. Thor would kill me. And, you know, you are my friend. But I will smash every single one of these eggs against your traitorous face and dump so many feathers on you that people are going to think you mutated into a giant, evil, lying chicken.”
Or the one where Clint takes his revenge against Darcy for her accidentally telling Bucky about Clint's complete and total man crush on him.

“Steve. Just spit it out.”
“Cocks, Bucky. She’s covered in shiny cocks.”
Or the one where Darcy has twenty minutes to avoid certain annihilation at the hands of a vengeful Clint and Tony. Standing in her way? Steve Rogers and Bucky Barnes.

Bucky's grin turns seductive, and Darcy tries her best to cling to exasperation rather than succumbing to intense lust. “I told you, doll. Dinner first. Then you and your modern ways can take me to bed and educate my stuffy, old, virginal—”
Darcy slaps a hand over his mouth. She glances back at Steve and sees him frowning at her. A high-pitched giggle of encroaching hysteria escapes her at the sight.
“I would not,” she blurts out.
His frown deepens. “You wouldn’t what?”
“I respect him as a person.”
Steve raises his brows. “O…kay.”
“Please don’t lecture me.”
Steve frowns again. “Why would I do that?”
At this, Sam shakes his head and walks away, muttering about his need for sane friends.
Or the one where Darcy has another twenty minutes to successfully escape the deranged overprotection of Clint, Tony, Steve, and Thor in order to embark on her first date with Bucky.
