What is a double take?

Report as

Look, look away, look again.
A delayed reaction to something unexpected, immediately after one's first reaction: "Tony glanced at her, then did a double take".
It's often used as a device in acting.

Double take is a term that is used to refer to a reaction that is delayed as a result of a surprise. In addition, it can also be defined by an emotional state exhibited as a result of a shocking unexpected event.
