    Thanks for watching!!
    I did get it but I do agree about the line choice at the point. See below

So his reaction at the door felt out of the blue and like the writer wanted to make a point, so bent that character to make that point. It felt a little manipulative and unreal to me.

    Good Work!
    I would have rather heard him say something like "she is leaving, it won't work'" or something like that. The out of her league line did not really fit since she had made it clear she had interest. That interest is what I think drives him to the door...making us have hope he will save her. So I do get your point on that one line.
