April Fool's Day
It's bright and early when he storms into her office and blurts out that question.
"Will you marry me?"
Lisbon freezes momentarily, then remembers what day is today.
"Get out of here, Jane. I have work to do."
He's brewing a cup of tea to perfection when Hightower shows up in the bullpen.
"It's good to see you, Madeleine. I was wondering if there's any chance you'd agree to marry me."
If looks could kill, he'd already be dead.
Van Pelt blushes crimson when he asks her, and he thinks she'll never get over that.
For a moment she looks like she wants to slap him across the face; then she just gives up and walks away.
He smiles and leans back against his faithful leather couch.
It's a wonder that Rigsby doesn't choke on his lunch when he pops the question.
"You can't be serious, man."
"Of course I'm not. It's April Fool's Day."
He doesn't stop to acknowledge the outraged look on his colleague's face.
Cho is reading a book when he approaches his desk and airily asks him.
The Asian agent looks up from his copy of Pride and Prejudice, he doesn't even blink as he says yes.
Jane pales a bit before the whole team bursts out laughing. Even a trickster can be tricked sometimes.
