->''The older I get, the stricter my criteria for thinking of someone as TRULY being an adult becomes. It used to be simply being eighteen or older in my eyes. Then I started thinking that it's hard to consider someone an adult if they're still in high school. Then I was like "dude, they're not even old enough to legally drink", and so on. If I live long enough, I'll one day be accusing sixty year-olds of being darn kids.''

->''More secrets, more problems, am I right? It's like, you think your secret is yours to share, but revealing yourself implies implication of other people, and by the time you realize that's the case, it's too late, and you're not sure if they'll squeal, so you have to lure them into the woods under the pretense of a woodsy slumber party and frame a surly old bear for the impending carnage because, frankly, that bear was a jerk and probably deserved worse than that.''
-->-- '''Commentary''', [[http://www.egscomics.com/index.php?date=2011-12-05 here.]]

->''It's not really plot relevant, so I don't bother specifying in the comic itself, but if I HAD to choose EXACTLY when this scene was taking place, it'd be right before their lunch period. That's really not important, but I want all those nerds to tell me what alignment Grace would be in D&D and they feast upon random trivia.''

Added DiffLines:

->''I think my old cat believed I could control the weather. She was an indoor cat, only allowed outside briefly and if supervised. If it was raining when she wanted to go outside, I would open the door in order to communicate "dude, it's raining." She would then look at me as though to say "well, turn it off, then."\\
That might sound weird, but seriously, how weird must it be from an animal's perspective how much control we have over light and water in our own homes? We flip a switch and there's light where none was before. We turn something and water rushes in. It really makes me wonder what they think we're capable of.''
-->-- '''Commentary''', [[http://www.egscomics.com/index.php?date=2011-12-23 here.]]

->''Grace may have a clearer view of the world now than she used to, but it's worth remembering that her basis for normalcy is living with Tedd and hanging out with Ellen. I don't think anyone in her shoes would have a perfectly clear view on what is and isn't weird.''

->''The boar was THIS close to having its "dialogue" translated. I know you can only imagine what I mean by "THIS" given that this is just text, but picture the tips of an index finger and a thumb close together. No, not that close. There you go.''
-->-- '''Commentary''', [[http://www.egscomics.com/index.php?date=2012-01-30 here.]]

->''This is the closest I've ever gotten to including an uncensored s-bomb into the script. Ultimately, however, I think the comic is better without cracking open that can of worms, and much like how the boar's grunts and snorts don't need translating, I don't think [[OhCrap Raven's face in panel seven]] does, either.''

'''Ellen:''' Oh. Well... thanks?\\
'''Akiko:''' That's what ''I'm'' going to do when I'm older, too!\\
'''Nanase:''' You're... what?\\
'''Akiko:''' Date girls, like you!\\
'''Nanase:''' Akiko, you can't just ''decide'' you're going to like girls.\\
'''Akiko:''' But I ''do'' like girls!\\
'''Nanase:''' I mean you can't just decide you're going to be ''attracted'' to girls.\\
'''Akiko:''' What does "be attracted to" mean?\\

->'''Akiko:''' So why can't I decide to be attracted to girls when I'm older?\\
'''Nanase:''' It's a feeling you get. It isn't a conscious decision.\\
'''Akiko:''' So you didn't decide to think she's pretty?\\
'''Nanase:''' Well, no. She just ''is!''\\
'''Ellen:''' I'm more ''hot'' than pretty.\\
'''Nanase:''' ''Ellen!''\\
'''Ellen:''' What?\\
'''Nanase:''' ''Eight!''\\
'''Akiko:''' I ''guess'' that's consistent with my data...\\
'''Nanase:''' You have data?\\
'''Ellen:''' About my hotness?\\
'''Akiko:''' It actually explains a ''lot!'' Like why two friends would fight over the same person, or why someone would ''like'' someone they ''don't'' like, and why a dragon would want to date a unicorn!\\
'''Nanase:''' Your data is from cartoons.\\
'''Akiko:''' Of course it is. I'm ''eight''.

->''As a general rule of thumb, I don't believe people should base their dating habits on sitcoms.\\
Unless you can somehow figure out how to emulate Jerry on ''Series/{{Seinfeld}}''. Granted, his relationships often ended horribly, but he was basically dating a new attractive woman every week. He must have been doing SOMETHING right.''
