Tuesday: Couch Potatoes

Today's theme is characters (or actors for RPS) watching/talking about/responding to television shows or movies. For example, Castiel and Uriel catch an episode of Heroes; what do they think of the slashy Petrelli brothers? Do The Doctor and The Master share a secret obsession with Three's Company? Do Barney and Robin make out when she comes over to cry about a sad episode of House?

*If you have a particular movie/show in mind for the fic to reference, please put the name at the end of the prompt in parentheses**

Please use the following formats (the second is for crossovers) in order to help out our hard-working codemonkeys:
Fandom, Pairing, Prompt
Fandom1/Fandom2, Pairing, Prompt

A couple of examples:
SPN, Castiel/Uriel, Petrellicest (Heroes)
Lost/Dr. Who, Daniel/Nine, "that is not time travel works" (Back to the Future)

Please remember to leave only one prompt per comment and to space out your prompts throughout the day so as not to overload any one page.

If nothing here inspires, roll on over to the Lonely Prompts index!

"What are you guys watching?" Barney asked as he breezed into Marshall and Lily's living room, taking a seat on the couch beside Robin. Almost immediately he pulled a face. "Ugh, I hate this show. That guy's so unprofessional! I'm telling you, his moves are the exact opposite of smooth, and he has no idea how to dress to impress..."

"I don't know, I'm usually impressed."

Robin shrugged, a small smirk playing about her lips as Barney gave her a surprised look at her comment, before returning his gaze to the screen with a studious frown.

"He looks like a slob!" he insisted. "Come on! Women can't actually find that attractive..."

"Sorry, Barney. We do," Lily informed him, reaching into the bowl of popcorn and tossing a few pieces into her mouth.

"Wait a second... what is he doing?" Ted asked, nodding toward the screen with an incredulous look. "He's not... shaving?"

"He is!" Marshall sounded stunned, and genuinely offended as he leaned against the back of the couch, staring at the screen. "But... House doesn't shave! He always goes with my signature casual, comfy look! Why is he..."

"Yes!" Barney exulted, pumping his fist in the air, beaming at the screen. "Finally, this show is making sense!"

The next scene showed the lead character of the show in a well-pressed suit and tie, cleanly shaven, neatly groomed. There was a long moment of silence as the entire group stared in disbelief.

"Um... okay..." Lily began at last, wide eyes glued to the screen. "I hate to say it, but... he does look good like that..."

"Better than the casual, comfy look?" Barney asked, a single brow raised.

"Um... yeah," Lily admitted, eyes averted.

"Word!" Barney grinned, glancing at Robin for her reaction before looking back at the screen. "Marshall, it's official. Your wife thinks I'm hotter than you."

"Hey, Barney?"

Barney turned automatically to face Marshall, given no warning by his casual, almost bored tone. Slap number four caught him completely off guard, spinning him around in a full circle and leaving him on his butt on the floor between the television and the couch.

"Oh, baby." Lily frowned, reaching up to soothingly stroke Marshall's arm as she looked down at Barney with mild concern. "You'll always be the hottest hottie of all to me, you know that."

"Yeah," Marshall admitted, sounding a little sullen. "And Barney will always be my bitch. Just wanted to make sure we were all clear on where we stand."
