Added DiffLines:

* TrueArtIsAngsty: In Zbeng 1's Zbeng at First Sight, Sigal wanna ask Gal out for a movie of that sort.
* TwiceShy: The very first Zbeng strip was about that. Gal saw a hot chick at the beach, and couldn't think of what to say to her, so he just kept coming to the beach and sitting near her day after day until he got sunburned - and then meeting her at the skin doctor's clinic and finding out she did the exact same thing. This story has been retolf several times, mostly as the story of how Gal and Sigal first met.
** Noga and Yaron often have that realtionship
