"Shit," Frank mutters, and shoves both hands through his hair. He looks around the kitchen like he's gonna find what he should do scratched into the old linoleum, then looks back at the bot. He gnaws on his lip. Fuck it. He already knows what he's gonna do. He's just gotta do it.
Getting down on his knees, he braces a hand on the edge of the crate and leans over the bot. It's dressed in a plain white tee and matching drawstring pants like an escaped mental patient. Frank rolls his neck and cracks his knuckles, shaking the ache out of them before carefully laying his palm against its cheek. He's pretty sure his voice is steady when he says, "Activate."
Nothing happens. Fucking shitty packaging-- the thing's busted. But Frank keeps his hand where it is, jumping a little when he feels the surge of energy beneath it. The robot's skin goes from room temperature to lukewarm, then warm. Frank watches it open its eyes, the light behind them adjusting until they're a pale sort of brown. It looks at him and asks, "Am I dead?"

“Daddy…” Steve whispers.
Bucky has never, ever had a defense against this. He’s not sure he wants one. The person he married has eyes more blue than the sky and more deep than the ocean and Bucky could resent the fact that he’s powerless under that gaze, helpless against the flutter of blonde lashes on perfect, pale cheeks, but he doesn’t. You don’t make Steve Rogers your's for life without wanting to look at this every goddamn day.
“Oh, sweetheart. You know I can’t resist when you look at me like that.”
OR: Steve is Bucky's sweet little sugar baby husband, and he's feeling neglected.
- Part 1 of Sugar Daddy Bucky and Stevie
Steve takes in Bucky's betrayed look and Sam's confusion, follows Sam's gaze to the pile of mangled fruit in the trash can. Sudden comprehension fills his face.
"Oh," he says. "Bucky found out about bananas."
In which an American icon is mourned. But probably not the one you're thinking of.

"Oh my God. I told you my name. I told you my name. Oh God."
It's lucky the alley by the coffee shop is empty, because Peter is about to hyperventilate.
"Well yeah, technically you did, sure. But you really think I found your address and real phone number and didn't manage to catch your name, too?"
Oh yeah, there's the panic attack.
Wade accidentally reveals that he knows more about Peter than he's let on, and decides tit for tat will make them even.
Once Peter catches on, he makes sure he gets what he's properly owed (in his own awkward way).
