The Moue

The dictionary definition of a moue is "a pouting look". It's the little twitchy lip thing ending in a smile that he does when Jameson says he's been "interrogated by professionals and he has the scars on his genitals to prove it".

I think it is a wonderfully descriptive word, the only one that exists that could possibly be used for that split-second expression that says it all.

Yes, Diane, they did indeed. And this scene is really interesting, because Goren kind of "flirts" with the guy and is soooooooooo HOT doing it! LOL
