The awkward time between getting the bill and finalizing on how to divvy up the tab between 2 or more people at a sit-down restaurant, especially when the check is much higher than you expected, and you even do the blink-backwards-head-nod in surprise at the price difference.

Typically the check dance indicates the quality of another person. If the other person who did not receive the check makes no indication of willingness to negotiate on how to split the check evenly or even attempts to pay the entire tab (whether genuine or not), this will tell you that that particularly person is a cheap ungrateful douche' bag.
After eating tons of food at the Olive Garden, we got the bill, and I was expecting to check dance over it, but my cheap date didn't even attempt to look at how much the bill came out to.
