* A few strips begin with Nate complaining about Mrs. Godfrey putting Nate in a difficult situation (i.e. sending him to summer school), followed with two panels of Marty berating Nate and [[TheReasonYouSuckSpeech explaining why the predicament he's in is his fault, and his alone.]] The strips end with Nate working late into the night or walking away with [[HeroicBSOD a look of utter regret and hopelessness on his face]], thinking about how much he hates Mrs. Godfrey. Granted, Marty is usually correct in placing the blame on Nate, but it hits close to home for anyone who knows the feeling of making a big mistake and having to live with the irreversible consequences.

--> [[spoiler: Jenny]]: Last month, my mom told me there was a 50% chance we'd [[spoiler: move to Seattle.]] Then last week, she told me it was more like 80%. Then yesterday she said it was 100%.
--> Nate: 100% never sounded so bad.

Added DiffLines:

* In one of the earlier strips, Nate being dumped by his first girlfriend... ''on Valentine's day no less.''
** Strip afterward continues this by having him stare at a picture of her before ripping it up in anger. He stares at the pieces dejectedly before going to the art teacher and asking for some tape. A pretty painful gutpunch to say the least.
