EXTRACT: Smile, be civil, agree, sit on your hands, don't tell them a thing, especially the one with the glasses, don't make eye contact. Nod, nod when they talk, try harder, nod with commitment, put some effort into the nodding, not too much, too much nodding is crazy, commit to it, do it, then move on. Clean lines, clean signals, put them off the scent. Throw them a smile, like you're throwing kipper to a seal.
