On display:

Unshakeable frame control
Plowing through shit tests
Vocal tonality & slowness
Eye contact
Body language
Light teasing/negging (he does a variation of the old 'Is she always like this?' chestnut)
The fact that he stumbles a bit, but it's okay, if there's attraction it's forgiven..

I love that movie. Seeing how he just stands there and delivers, works through the shit tests, and rewards the blonde for being warm to him is fantastic. Also, the amount of non-verbal communication is strong. Seeing things like this helped me a lot, as I used to get flustered upon shit tests or if I stutter or something goes wrong while opening/talking to girls. My pulse doesn't escalate on such occasions as it used to, as it's going to happen. When he tries to think of the phrase for her squeezing the fun out of life, he doesn't lose frame.
