"And the thing is…" Steve knows he's slurring his words and is leaning all over Chin, but he can't seem to stop himself. "He's not sayin' anything, y'know?"
He hasn't told Chin anything, really – at least he doesn't think he has. He just mentioned a mistake and an almost-argument, and how he doesn't know how to make it right.
"Maybe you should try grabbing a beer with him?" Chin says, smiling like he knows everything, which maybe he does.
"Nah, he won't go out with me; that's the whole point!" Steve says, then freezes, realizing what he's just given away.
