Dan being super touchy to Amy (mostly to calm her outbursts)

You know, it’s an interesting parallel…

When Dan has his breakdown, Amy is the only person he can stand to have touch him. He very forcefully pushes Ray, Mike and Kent away from him, while grabbing onto Amy, even when he’s in the hospital bed.

Admittedly, Dan clearly has no concept of personal space when it comes to Amy – and I’m fairly sure that when they do have physical contact it’s almost always him touching her, rather than the other way round – but it interests me that he gets more…physically assertive with her when trying to calm her down.
