Is there a trope for a lighter version where a character gives exposition while flirting in order to impress the potential Love Interest with how much they know?

Not as far as I know. I recall that, during the YKTTW, I suggested a scene in which a character exposits to another while naked and that somehow got cut before launch.

I was thinking of things like the scene in Apollo 13 where Jack Swigert gives an explanation of how the spacecraft in a lunar mission are docked to a girl he's flirting with at a party or in the old Anthony Hopkins film Across the Lake, where the daredevil hero flirts with a reporter by taking her out on a speedboat and explaining how water-speed records are set.
