As funny as it would be for Hal to carelessly lay his head into a bowl of potato salad because he didn't look where he was going, Dirk supposes that if Hal ends up having to shower the date will end. To avoid that, he nudges several containers of food away from them and lets Hal scoot backwards. When Hal is close, Dirk wraps one of his arms around Hal's waist, using the other as a pillow. Hal is really warm, and he smells nice. After all of the excitement, and stress, and food involved in the day, Dirk will be lucky if he doesn't fall asleep. "This seems sufficiently illicit. Hopefully the Neighborhood Association doesn't call the cops on us."
