Jace, lying face down on his bed: I said "neat," Alec. Who the fuck says neat these days? It's not neat to say neat, but I said it anyway because I'm fucking stupid.
Alec, idly reading a book: Don't beat yourself up too much, Jace. Everyone gets nervous sometimes. Remember what happened when Magnus confessed to me?
Jace: Didn't you, like, thank him?
Alec: [Closes book and stares at the ceiling]
Alec: I fucking thanked him.
