over a year ago:
I think this might have been the first scene I ever saw of them together. I didn't start watching the show until this past July, on DVD, and to decide whether or not I would like the show enough to buy the DVD, I looked up some videos on YouTube and watched them first. I knew vaguely who Matt Lanter was and thought he was incredibly hot, so I mainly looked for videos involving Liam. When I watched this video, I think I instantly decided I would ship Liam with Annie, even though I knew from reading about the show that he was with Naomi.
I LOVE their banter here. I love the fact that Annie was so unimpressed by him in the beginning - and that she was not afraid to show it! Her "not much of a man" speech was great, although I'm not sure which theory of hers I actually agree with. And Naomi watching them through the glass door, looking jealous and angry was a nice touch.
Also love the "volcano" theory of Liam's. Just the fact that he was interested enough to actually put some thought into what type of person she was spoke volumes, if you ask me. And I adore his arched eyebrow near the end, and his imitation of her smile. He was so flirting with her. Liomi fans can deny it all they want, but there was definitely a spark between these two.
One of my favorite parts of the episode though, which is not shown in that video clip, is after Liam leaves and Annie joins the girls in the kitchen and Naomi is cutting up that creepy-looking baby-shaped cake. Annie tells Naomi that she just REALLY doesn't like Liam, and for some reason Naomi believes her and acts all relieved. Ah, poor, naive Naomi. :P
