"Hey, Doc," said the dimpled con man, with a shake of his shaggy hair and an indecently suggestive smile.
"Hey, yourself," replied the incongruously tattooed surgeon, squinting enigmatically.
"You're not gonna start cryin' on me, are ya?" sighed the blond, tragically orphaned Southerner.
"No, I've just got something in my eye," answered the frequently prone-to-tears medical practitioner.
"Want me to help you get it out?" smirked the shirtless, slope-shouldered, Dharma-beer-swilling criminal.
"It's okay, I think I've got it," insisted the intense sometime jogger and occasional miracle-working man of science.
"Good, cuz I'd hate to think anything would get in the way of your appreciatin' my fine physique," the island's slightly suicidal answer to James Dean said with a waggle of his eyebrows.

The troubled, letter-writing killer of polar bears, frogs, and dastardly men who'd bedded and betrayed his mother took a step closer, enjoying how the overly emotional Los Angeles native trembled at his approach.

As the two kissed passionately, they were observed by the befreckled, petite, twentysomething, green-eyed brunette whom they'd once fought over. She sighed, realizing that the heroically inclined workaholic West Coaster and the charmingly nefarious, nicknaming Southerner were both out of her reach.
There was still a certain tanktop-wearing, curly-haired, reluctant torturer and quietly soulful, taciturn repairer of radios with an aversion to felines, however. She set off through the verdant, lush jungle, tinged with the morning's first light and the exotic sound of bird calls, to look for him.
