Hi, this is from The Serpent Papers by Jessica Cornwell.

It is a description of a scene in a bar. Two people, famous actors, are drinking together. They are friends, maybe more, we don't know yet.

"They laugh. Their shoulders move – she touches his shoulder – the crowd is heaving but they exist apart – did you catch that? – she touched his shoulder – and then they left? They or he?"

Could you help me with the bold part, please?
Thank you.
