Uhhhh no I don't like you at all, why would you think that?
Hey so I heard a rumor that you like me. Is that true?

The word went around that Jess liked Bobby. He confronts her about it and instead of her admitting her true feelings, she says she does not have feelings for him. The defense mechanism reaction formation takes place because Jess expresses the opposite of how she truly feels towards him.
