''Roomies!'', ''It's Walky!'', and ''Joyce and Walky!'' are three interconnected comics in the {{Walkyverse}}, and can be found [[http://www.joyceandwalky.com/d/19970908.html here]] (with the exception of most of ''Joyce and Walky!'', which can be purchased [[http://shortpacked.bigcartel.com/ here.]]) If you don't want to ArchiveBinge, the entire thing is being reuploaded a day at a time in "best reading order" [[http://www.bringbackroomies.com here.]]

''Roomies!'' began on September 10th, 1997 as a SliceOfLife webcomic concerning the adventures of Danny Wilcox, [[OrdinaryHighSchoolStudent Ordinary College Student]], and his KavorkaMan roommate Joe Rosenthal. Other important characters included Danny's love interest Jennifer "Billie" Billingsworth, his mixed-race BrokenBird ex-girlfriend Sal Walters, and the [[VirginityMakesYouStupid sheltered]], [[{{Yandere}} semi-well-adjusted]] Joyce Brown. The strip gradually developed both CerebusSyndrome and a love for theatrics, culminating in Joe and Joyce being kidnapped by aliens.

At this point it re-branded itself ''It's Walky!'' and began to focus on the adventures of a GovernmentConspiracy called SEMME, dedicated to dealing with extra-terrestrial threats to Earth. The titular David "Walky" Walkerton, a [[{{Keet}} hyperactive]] member of Squad 128, found himself fighting alongside Sal, Joe and Joyce, all of whom were inducted to SEMME and placed in his squad, with StuffyBrit Jason Chesterfield, JerkWithAHeartOfJerk Mike Warner and [[GenkiGirl even-more-hyperactive]] Robin [=DeSanto=] rounding out the central cast.

After a random collection of {{Where Are They Now Epilogue}}s, Willis launched ''Joyce and Walky!'' in 2005, a DomCom centering around the OfficialCouple of the verse, debuted, playing out the affairs of characters after the retirement of ''It's Walky!''. Only strips published on Saturdays were available to the public; Tuesday and Thursday material were for subscribers only. Though initially described as "a post-apocalyptic tale of domestic hijinx", it quickly developed its own sci-fi oriented storyline based around the offspring of SEMME members from alternate futures appearing in the main universe in the present day. (Around the same time, Robin and Mike got spun off into ''Webcomic/{{Shortpacked}}''.)

This strip was put on hiatus in 2010, and later that year got an UltimateUniverse in ''DumbingOfAge'', which transplants characters from all of Willis's other comics into Indiana University and strips off the sci-fi elements, thus going back to the original premise of ''Roomies!''...and so the circle is complete.

''Joyce & Walky!'' got taken out of mothballs on May 13, 2012, with sporadic updates between then and August, and is currently stalled again. However, the plan currently is to end the comic on the scene it left off on, keeping its chronology trapped in 2010.

As mentioned, the entire story is being gradually reuploaded to [[http://bringbackroomies.com a new website]], with commentary under every strip from Willis. The main purpose of the site is to give people the chance to read it in chronological order, and apparently to [[OldShame induce a sense of despair in Willis.]]

The cast of these series is vast, but the main players in each can be boiled down to:

! Roomies:
* '''Danny Wilcox''', an ordinary college student with a tendency for unbridled panic.
* '''Joe Rosenthal''', Danny's [[KavorkaMan womanizing]] best friend and dorm roommate.
* '''Joyce Brown''', a quirky innocent girl who is intent on [[{{Yandere}} making Danny her boyfriend]].
* '''Sarah Clinton''', Joyce's jaded pre-law roommate and FriendsWithBenefits with Joe.
* '''Jennifer 'Billie' Billingsworth''', a TroubledButCute student with a reputation as a party girl.
* '''Mary''' (Mary Paul in ''Walky!''), Sal's hypocritical 'best friend' whose moralizing towards Billie is proven hollow [[spoiler:when she has an abortion]].
* '''Ruth Lesse''', a cynical grad student who had been Billie and Walky's babysitter as a teen.
* '''Sal Walters''', Danny's moody, mysterious ex-girlfriend, who shows up just long enough to tell Danny goodbye because she's moving on to...

! It's Walky!:
* '''David 'Walky' Walkerton''', a [[{{Keet}} hyperactive]], bubble-headed medical lab attendant turned alien hunter who was once Billie's best childhood friend [[spoiler:and is actually Sal's long-lost twin brother]].
* '''Steven 'Beef' Walkerton''', Walky's fraternal twin brother [[spoiler:secretly SwitchedAtBirth with Sal]].
* '''Jason Chesterfield''', the uptight British squad leader, and [[spoiler:the only non-abductee amongst Squad 128]].
* '''Mike Warner''', violent-minded {{Jerkass}} who delights in torturing those around him.
* '''Allen Rees''', [[AlienAmongUs alien expert]].
* '''Professor Doc''', MadScientist in charge of studying alien technology.
* '''Dina Sarazu''', unfortunate, mild-mannered paleontologist who ends up as Professor Doc's assistant.
* '''Robin [=DeSanto=]''', [[GenkiGirl hyperactive]] [[SuperSpeed speedster]] [[spoiler:who is Mike's replacement in [[FiveManBand Squad 128]] after he is nearly killed by Walky]].

Their main opponents are the Purple Aliens ('Alien' being the actual name of their homeworld), lead by Head Alien; the [[McNinja British Ninjas]] from a secret organization led by [[spoiler:Jason's father Dargon Chesterfield and Jason's former lover Penny Worthington]]; and the Martian Empire.

! Joyce and Walky:
* '''Becky''', Joyce's new best friend. She is generally more sane and easy-going than Joyce.
* '''Dorothy''', Walky's over-achieving ex-girlfriend who dumped him for not being studious enough. She's moved into Walky's neighborhood and is having second thoughts about her decision all those years ago.
* '''D.J. Wilcox''', Danny and [[spoiler:Sal]]'s hypothetical kid from the future. Other universes sending help for other versions of him, only to end up in the mainline continuity, is the impetus for most of the plot.
* ''Our'' universe's D.J. Wilcox, Danny and Billie's female kid, born [[MilestoneCelebration exactly ten years from the debut of]] ''Roomies!''.
* '''Bobby "Machete" Walkerton''', another hypothetical kid from the future and seemingly the only one with the right parentage.

These series provide examples of:

[[foldercontrol]]

[[folder:''Roomies!'']]

* AliensStealCable: And are pop-culture junkies...
* AnythingThatMoves: Billie before Ruth's death.
* ArcWords: "Act with integrity... No regrets."
* ArtEvolution: [[http://www.bringbackroomies.com/comic/college-is-fine/ This]] is what the first strip of the entire canon looked like. [[http://www.dumbingofage.com/ This]] is the latest strip of ''Dumbing of Age''. '''Same artist.'''
* AscendedExtra: Billie--started as a background character living with Ruth and was revealed to be both her childhood friend and the ''Roomies!'' cast's OneDegreeOfSeparation to Walky a year or so later.
* AuthorAvatar: Danny begins Willis' trend of these.
** Although, as he realized by the end of It's Walky's run, it was actually Joyce all along.
* BelligerentSexualTension: Danny and Billie. [[http://www.joyceandwalky.com/d/19990518.html I'm enjoying this way too much.]]
* BookEnds: The comic begins and ends with Danny on the phone with his girlfriend and scolding Joe for climbing up out the window to the girls' dorms, trying to get him to think of the consequences. The first time, Joe's response shows his obliviousness to the concept of dealing with your actions; the second time, Joe [[CharacterDevelopment has actually considered the potential ramifications]] (if only the favorable ones) and decided to do it anyway.
* CantGetAwayWithNuthin': Drink one beer, and [[spoiler: you'll proceed to get totally drunk and a close friend of yours will GET KILLED saving you from your own stupidity]].
** Also [[LampshadeHanging lampshaded]] and [[AvertedTrope averted]] much, much later ([[spoiler:"Alcohol killed Ruth." "No, Ruth killed Ruth."]])
* CerebusSyndrome: Ruth's [[spoiler:death]] brought the strip's consequence-free hijinks to a [[IncrediblyLamePun screeching halt]].
* ClingyJealousGirl: Joyce. Worth noting that she's jealous over someone that's not actually hers.
* CreatorCameo: [[http://www.bringbackroomies.com/comic/happy-birthday/ "If I don't get a girlfriend in the next five seconds I'm gonna jump out the window."]] This was an accurate portrayal of Willis' mindset at the time.
** The first of many. Willis makes multiple background appearances throughout his comics, and later on becomes Ethan's SitcomArchNemesis in ''Webcomic/{{Shortpacked}}''.
* {{Disneyfication}}: Parodied with ''Roomies!'' issue two, which has Danny, Joe and Joyce watching "Disney's ''Literature/HanselAndGretel''".
* EarlyBirdCameo: Dina, moreso than the rest of SEMME--appears in one panel and judging by her surroundings hasn't even been recruited yet.
* FallenPrincess: Billie, a former Libby-esque Cheerleader, has a hard time adjusting to her loss of status upon entering college where no one cares how "cool" you supposedly were in high school.
* FamousLastWords: [[spoiler: Ruth's "Act with integrity... No regrets!" was echoed throughout the series, even by characters who didn't know her.]]
* HeroicSacrifice: Ruth
* HowUnscientific: See below.
* IHaveBrothers: Joyce has ''five'', all older, she used early on to explain her uncharacteristic fighting skills [[spoiler:until the Alien plots kick in.]]
* SheIsNotMyGirlfriend: Danny, word-for-word several times with Joyce.
* {{Irony}}: Ruth learned her "act with integrity" motto from her adulterous father.
* InfoDump: From this scene in ''Roomies!'' issue two, for those unfamiliar with the comic:
--> '''Joe:''' What are we doing tonight?
--> '''Danny:''' Joyce wants to see a movie.
--> '''Joe:''' Joyce? You mean that studious, churchy girl? The Joyce who followed you home and claimed you as her own? Even though you're dating Sal, who's currently still in high school?
--> ''Both AsideGlance''
--> '''Danny:''' That was...[[LampshadeHanging informative]]. But yes. Joyce.
* KavorkaMan: Joe - to the point that later {{Fanon}} would speculate that part of his Abductee powers was [[LoveIsInTheAir enhanced pheromones]]
* KilledOffForReal: [[spoiler:Ruth.]]
* {{Meganekko}}: Billie
* NoFourthWall: Crossed with BizarroEpisode. It lasted about a week before the closing of the strip's first year.
* PietaPlagiarism: [[http://www.joyceandwalky.com/d/20070226.html Ruth carrying a ten year old Walky]], who has just been returned by the Aliens, as she walks in on her father and Billie's mother, who are having an affair.
* PopularityRedo: Of sorts. A storyline in which Joe enters an inventors contest and loses to one Tom Chestnut is a recreation of one of his childhood comics--the main difference, besides sheer quality, is Joe entering a hoverboard and Tom a robotic, video-game playing catgirl in the redone version, as opposed to Ultra-Car and a potato washer in the original.
* PoorlyDisguisedPilot: Anything involving Joyce/Sal and SEMME.
* PunnyName: Whitney Howard Lesse, Ruth Lesse, Dick Lesse.
* ShoutOut: The title of the first book collection. ''Roomies! [[DrStrangelove Or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Beer]]''.
** The second book has two: the title is ''Roomies! [[Franchise/{{X-Men}} Giant-Sized]] CerebusSyndrome''. The cover is a take-off on the ''Giant-Sized X-Men'' cover.
*** The print version of book two will be titled ''Giant Size Acts of Integrity'', due to Willis' disagreement with Dave Sim's current sociological views.
* TakeThatMe: David Willis' commentary on the "Bring Back ''Roomies!''" website. He doesn't let an opportunity pass by for him to make fun of his old art or his (and therefore [[AuthorAvatar his characters']]) former fundamentalist Christian beliefs.
* TooKinkyToTorture: Both played straight and subverted : Joyce seems to be the only human who can stand ''[[CoolAndUnusualPunishment The Sound of Music]]'', but once the aliens realize this they show her porn instead, which [[HeroicBSOD screws her up]] for [[CharacterDevelopment the long term]]
* {{Tsundere}}: Billie, toward Danny.
* {{Yandere}}: Joyce, toward Danny.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:''It's Walky!'']]

* AbnormalAmmo: Monkey Master has [[ArmCannon Arm Cannons]] that ''shoot monkeys''. This is about as effective as it sounds. They're also initially wielded on both sides of his elbows, further decreasing efficiency.
* ActionGirl: Sal, primarily, though Joyce, Daisy, Lith, and Linda would count too
* ActionMom: Linda Walkerton, [[spoiler:eventually becoming the second Big Boss of SEMME]]
* AGodAmI: The Wanderer, better known in-universe and out as "The Cheese"
* AliensInCardiff: Lampshaded in the anomaly arc.
* AlphaBitch: Billie's High School persona. She comes to feel guilty about it.
* AnyoneCanDie: By the end of the strip, about a third of the major characters are dead.
* AnythingThatMoves: This time an entire ''squad'' of them, all female.
* ArcWords: "It's the rain..."
* TheAtoner: Sal. Somewhat subverted, since this is usually defined as wanting to go out and do something to atone. Sal sits in prison when it is implied she could break out, and is forced to escape by circumstances.
* AsYouKnow / InfoDump: Lampshaded. [[http://www.joyceandwalky.com/d/20000111.html "Hey, boss, we know all this."]]
* AttentionDeficitOohShiny: Walky.
* AuthorAvatar: Walky continues the trend started by Danny.
* BackFromTheDead: [[spoiler:Tony, Head Alien, Linda Walkerton, David Walkerton]].
* BadassBoast: [[http://www.joyceandwalky.com/d/20041010.html "Heh. My name's the Cheese and I can kick your butts."]]
* BadassNormal: Jason, [[spoiler:the only non-abductee member of Squad 128]].
* BattleTrophy: After killing Dargon and [[KlingonPromotion taking over his paramilitary organisation]], Penny takes to wearing his [[EyepatchOfPower eyepatch]] as a personal affect.
* BerserkButton: Well, a ''lot'' of them, but honorable mention to Dina, who had been steadily falling into despairing over her own uselessness when one of the Britjas pressed it when he was setting up a bomb to destroy S.E.M.M.E.'s intelligence and research files.
--> "Hey, kid, don't take it personally. It's just a bunch of science."
* {{BFG}}: Joyce's cannon.
* BigBad: Head Alien.
* BiggerBad: The Martians.
* BlondGuysAreEvil: Mike. It's a [[ComedicSociopath funny kind of evil]], though.
* BreakTheCutie: Walky, Joyce, Linda...
** Joyce in particular could be the poster girl for this trope.
* BreakThemByTalking: One of Head Alien's favorite tactics.
* CantHoldHisLiquor: It takes a mere sip to get Sal and Walky passed out.
* CatFight: ''So'' many, most involving Sal.
* CallBack: To ''Roomies!'', multiple times. For example, [[http://www.joyceandwalky.com/d/20040123.html the incident Billie's describing in panel one]] [[http://www.joyceandwalky.com/d/19990529.html can be seen here.]]
** Danny reacts to Sal sneaking into his room in ''Roomies!'' the same way he does [[spoiler:seeing she's become a genocidal maniac in ''It's Walky!'']], and her response is similar too. [[spoiler:In the former situation, she was pretending to be her former upbeat self to keep Danny from the pain of her parents death, in the latter his appearance helps confirm that she's pretending to be genocidal to convince herself her convictions mean something.]]
-->'''Danny:''' Sal?[!]
-->'''Sal:''' (''with forced smile'') Hiya!/Hi, Danny!
* CerebusRetcon: Pretty much ''everything''.
** Using ''Theatre/TheSoundOfMusic'' as torture goes from being just plain SuckinessIsPainful to having a subliminally-painful, ''Film/{{Scanners}}''-like effect on abductees imprinted on them in youth, and Joyce's immunity becomes a plot point.
* CerebusSyndrome: The DarkerAndEdgier trend of the series worked ''much'' better than in ''Roomies'', but still drove away several fans.
* ChekhovsGunman: The Cheese is [[spoiler:(Linda's once-mentioned ex) David.]]
* CloningBlues: Anti-Joyce, whose murder by the original would lead to severe repercussions.
* CoolAndUnusualPunishment: [[TwoWordsObviousTrope Four words]]:''The Sound of Music''
* ConspicuousCG: 3D models were used for some of the robots and spaceships. They looked ''really'' [[http://www.joyceandwalky.com/d/20020512.html out of place.]].
* ContractualGenreBlindness: Head Alien just enjoys playing the Villain too much for his own good.
* CreatorCameo: At it's subtlest. [[http://www.joyceandwalky.com/d/20041016.html Look in front on Monkey Master's left arm, the one that's not holding Aliens.]] (Warning, comic contains spoilers!)
* CrossOver: With ''{{Melonpool}},'' twice, and both times it had a lasting effect on ''Walky'''s storylines.
** And another with ''{{Fans}}'', which seemed more concerned with advancing both character sets' emotional arcs.
* CrouchingMoronHiddenBadass: Both Joyce and Walky.
* DarkActionGirl: Sal, through much of the series.
* DeathIsCheap: Averted, despite the heroes having access to a Martian Resurrection Chamber by the end of the comic. Only one person can use it at a time, the process takes nine months, and you need a sample of DNA from the subject. [[spoiler:And the martians are very thorough when it comes to preventing their enemies from returning, so most of the SEMME agents who died in the finale are staying dead. It's very fortunate that Joyce happened to have...''acquired'' some of Walky's genetic material shortly before the battle]].
* DeathIsTheOnlyOption: In the finale, [[spoiler:Walky has to die so he can enter purgatory and get nudged up into the brain of the Cheese, a God-like robot that's the only thing powerful enough to stop the Martian invasion. Similarly, Alan must kill himself by intangably entering the Cheese in order to get the Head Alien out of control.]]
* DefiantToTheEnd: [[spoiler:Mike goes out hurling a "your mom" joke at the Martian eating him.]]
* DestructoNookie: When Walky and Joyce finally resolve their {{UST}}, motel room furniture [[http://www.joyceandwalky.com/d/20040418.html pays the price]]
--> "Man of steel, woman of steel, ''bed'' of kleenex."
** And earlier, we got a PG-rated version [[http://www.joyceandwalky.com/d/20020321.html with Walky and Dina]].
-->'''Walky:''' '''SEX'''?! We were cuddling!
-->'''Jason:''' You put a hole through the '''wall''', Walkerton!
* DeusEstMachina: The Cheese isn't God, but given that he [[NonLinearCharacter can see through all time]], has complete [[MindOverMatter telekinesis]], and that freezing him in time [[UnpredictableResults causes reality to deteriorate]], he may as well be.
* DisproportionateRetribution: Before [[http://www.joyceandwalky.com/d/20040206.html coming to the main universe]] Dargon Chesterfield [[spoiler: condemned his home universe to eventual heat death by intentionally refusing to evenly trade energy from the universe he and the rest of his organization were traveling to. All because The Wanderer didn't leave him enough time for Jason to be born there, thus making him detectable by the other universe's version of The Wanderer.]]
-->[[spoiler: '''The Wanderer''': No! Our ''universe'' will ''die'' a slow ''energy death''! What ''motive'' do you have against the ''countless'' innocents that inhabit your ''native world''?!]]
-->[[spoiler: '''Dargon Chesterfield''': You robbed me of my ''heir''. I will rob you of your ''future''.]]
* DittoAliens: Justified - we never see the Purple Aliens or Martians outside of their protective suits.
* DoctorJekyllAndMisterJackDaniels: When he gets drunk, Mike turns ''nice''!
* DoubleEntendre: Especially in the storyline appropriately named 'Innuendo'.
* DramaticShattering: Subverted and promptly lampshaded:
-->'''Walky:''' No mind wipe for you. Ever. (''tosses mind-wiper to the ground, it bounces'') Well, if that broke it would've been really cool.
* DudeLooksLikeALady: Walky, especially in the gender-bending reality-warping storyline.
* EverythingsBetterWithMonkeys: Monkey Master, who ''hates'' being called a monkey - he's a giant robot ''ape'', after all; also, Walky's obsession with monkeys, and especially his favorite childhood toy, Mister Monkey.
* EyepatchOfPower: Dargon Chesterfield milks this trope for all it's worth. After [[spoiler: she kills him]], Penny even takes it to wear herself.
* ExpressiveMask: The Purple Alien's helmets
* {{Expy}}: Sal is amazingly similar to Rogue of the X-Men. She speaks with a Southern accent, discovers her long-lost brother is her teammate, is one of the strongest members of SEMME, is emotionally conflicted and constantly switching sides, and even wears gloves.
** Quite a few things, like her trauma at her parents being killed, her dark brooding nature, and disdain for doors are taken directly from Franchise/{{Batman}}. [[http://www.joyceandwalky.com/d/20030629.html Lampshaded.]]
** WordOfGod is that Beef is one of Creator/ArnoldSchwarzenegger.
** Between the name and the hairstyle, Professor Doc is so blatantly one of [[Film/BackToTheFuture Dr. Emmett Brown]] that Joe confuses him for the real ChristopherLloyd the first time they meet.
* FamousLastWords: [[spoiler: Dina's "This was the best I could do." executed this trope perfectly. She actually gained more fans in death.]]
* FantasticRacism: Toward [[spoiler:Alan]] and the law-abiding Martians; in the epilogue, toward now-assimilated aliens.
* FauxHorrific: ''[[http://www.joyceandwalky.com/d/20030915.html COUNTRY MUSIC!]]''
* {{Flight}}: Part of what makes Joyce special is that she can use the flying pack effectively.
* {{Foreshadowing}}: [[http://www.joyceandwalky.com/d/20030415.html Over my fossilized remains!]]
** [[http://www.joyceandwalky.com/d/20040227.html In this "vision," how many arms did you have?]]
* FragileSpeedster: Robin, though it's mostly emotional fragility rather than physical - she's about as strong as the others.
* FreudianExcuse: Sal.
* FunetikAksent: Sal.
** Averted with Jason: though he apparently ''does'' [[http://www.joyceandwalky.com/d/20011125.html have an accent]], it's not phonetic.
* GambitRoulette: Britjas, just...Britjas.
* GeekyTurnon: [[ManChild When Walky]] [[http://www.joyceandwalky.com/d/20020318.html makes himself over as an adult to impress Dina]] and win a bet with Joyce.
-->'''Walky:''' Hello, Dina. My shirt is pressed. My shoes are tied. My posture is straight.
-->'''Dina:''' ''*{{Beat}}, performs TheGlomp on Walky''
* GenkiGirl: Robin.
* GenderBender: During an UnpredictableResults episode.
* GenreSavvy: Danny. While talking with Sal, he mentions that he's planning to ask Billie to marry him. Sal asks if she can see the ring. His response? "Hell no. I know how this works. I show you the ring, and Billie walks around the corner."
* GetOutOfJailFreeCard: Averted: when Sal was incarcerated, she could easily have broken out if she'd wanted to, but remained because she knows she deserved it, and eventually had to escape when swept up by circumstances.
* GiganticGulp: The "X-TREEEM MUG!" storyline.
** Becomes a fine BrickJoke. In the last panel of the [[http://www.joyceandwalky.com/d/20041027.html last strip]] [[spoiler:we see a flash-forward of Joyce and Walky sitting together in old age - the giant mug is still right by Walky's side]].
* {{GIRL}}: Not done, but [[http://www.joyceandwalky.com/d/20030522.html referenced here]].
* GodlySidestep: The Big Cheese claims to know which religion is the correct one, but refuses to tell anyone, claiming that if you don't figure it out for yourself, you won't understand the answer.
* GovernmentConspiracy: SEMME. [[spoiler: Eventually revealed to be involved in an ''even bigger'' conspiracy with the Martians and JFO. Dargon Chesterfield created SEMME specifically so that he could build an army out of the abductees, who were themselves the product of a joint effort between Linda Walkerton and the Head Alien.]]
* GlurgeAddict
* GreatWayToGo: Dying in a fire is bad, but also [[StuffBlowingUp sort of cool]]. If it's while in the middle of an orgy in which one is the only male[[note]]and straight[[/note]]...
** [[spoiler:The Head Alien]]'s last words are "my favorite death"[[note]]Well, "Mmy fvrt dthhh"[[/note]] as he's literally stabbed in the back.
* HalfIdenticalTwins: Sal and Walky
* HeroicBSOD: Many, most notably Linda during the final fight with the Britjas.
* HeroicSacrifice: [[spoiler:Dina]].
** Possibly [[spoiler:Mike]] as well, as he [[spoiler:shoved Joyce out of the way before facing the martians alone]].
* HeroicComedicSociopath: Mike.
* HilaritySues: Done completely straight and deadly serious.
* IfYouKillHimYouWillBeJustLikeHim: But it doesn't work the last time Head Alien tries it.
* IndecisiveParody: It doesn't really know if it's a comedic series or a dramatic one. It's a mix of both.
* IntelligibleUnintelligible: Beef, whose lines are always rendered as some variation of "grunt." While he rarely speaks up, nobody seems to have any trouble understanding him when he does.
* IsThatWhatHeToldYou: Another tactic Head Alien often used.
* IWantGrandkids: Joyce's mother, to an [[http://www.joyceandwalky.com/d/20030320.html astoundingly]] [[http://www.joyceandwalky.com/d/20051126.html embarrassing]] degree.
* KilledMidSentence: [[spoiler:Mike Warner.]] Also doubles as both a HeroicSacrifice and a CrowningMomentOfAwesome.
-->[[spoiler: '''Mike''': (as he's about to be eaten by a martian) You call ''this'' tentacle violation? Your ''mom's'' better at this. That's because she's a prosti-* SKLRCH* ]]
* KlingonPromotion: [[spoiler: Penny's assassination of Dargon.]]
* KnightOfCerebus: The Wanderer, in his first full appearance. He even provides the page quote.
* IncomingHam: [[http://www.joyceandwalky.com/d/20020512.html GREETINGS, EARTHLINGS!]]
* LadykillerInLove: Joe, first with his crush on [[spoiler:Joyce]] and then with him starting to fall for a nerdy girl in a chatroom. It sets off his character development arc, and he eventually becomes a more well-rounded person because of both instances.
* LaserGuidedAmnesia: The mindwiper.
* LetsWaitAwhile: Though in Joyce and Walky, it's not so much "Wait until the time is right to have sex" as much as "Wait until Joyce can think about sex without going catatonic or psychotic."
* LikeBrotherAndSister: Walky and Billie are revealed to have been this before Walky was recruited to SEMME, having grown up together and maintained a strained friendship through high school. She seems genuinely happy to see him when he meets up with the ''Roomies!'' characters early on.
* LoadsAndLoadsOfCharacters: At least 90% of the characters on that page up there were introduced for or major players in this one. The [[http://scorpius.spaceports.com/~carnildo/itswalky_all.html unofficial stats page]] lists 247 named or otherwise identifiable characters.
* LockingMacGyverInTheStoreCupboard: [[http://www.joyceandwalky.com/d/20041015.html We found Phil, the Destiny's janitor, trapped in a closet, and he helped us escape using a variety of common household tools.]]
* LoudOfWar: The aliens use ''The Sound Of Music'' as a form of mental torture.
* LoveMartyr: Dina.
* LukeIAmYourFather
* McNinja: The 'Britjas'
* MistakenForGay: "Innuendo"
* MoodWhiplash: Oh dear sweet lord, SO MUCH. Routinely switches from grief over main character deaths to ToiletHumor. Oddly, this can heighten the dramatic effects - the characters are so used to that sort of thing by the end of the comic that they move on faster than the reader does.
* MoreThanMindControl: Beef, the long-lost Walkerton sibling, was part of the squad that supposedly got brainwashed when they went to England to investigate the JFO. [[spoiler: Only he wasn't brainwashed. Merely disgruntled.]]
* MurderTheHypotenuse: Billie against Sal.
* MysteriousParent
* NeverBareheaded: Dina is never seen without her trademark safari hat, even when sleeping or suspended upside down. In the entire series, she takes it off exactly once: [[spoiler:when she is about to die.]]
* NotMakingThisUpDisclaimer: [[http://www.joyceandwalky.com/d/20010129.html "Yes. Yes! He put me in his 'tummy prison.' I'm not making this up."]]
* NotSoHarmlessVillain: The Head Alien is a pretty funny guy... who also happens to singlehandedly ruin several characters' lives.
* ObfuscatingStupidity Dizzy and hyperactive as he is, Walky is not nearly as dumb as he acts, (he was a straight-A student) but he prefers to play the fool to avoid responsibility. (And he has trouble breaking the habit of a lifetime when responsibility is ultimately forced upon him.)
* Theatre/OedipusRex
* OnlyKnownByTheirNickname: Walky is called "David" a small handful of times in the strip's entire history (mostly by his mother.) Doubly ironic as everyone calls him "Walky", which is a nickname he doesn't even like (he insists people call him "Walkerton") due to its association with repressed memories.
** Billie also qualifies.
* PaintingTheMedium: Aliens speak in orange-yellow, octagonal text boxes. Monkey Master and other mechanical characters speak in rectangular text boxes (and the Cheese's are yellow.) Martian text boxes are deep orange with bizarre, scatter-shot shapes.
* PetTheDog: [[spoiler: The only time Mike shows any display of emotion for his fellow human beings other than abject hate (as long as he isn't drunk) was [[ShootTheShaggyDog when Dina died in front of him.]]]]
* PeekABangs: Sal, for a while.
* PerverseSexualLust: TropeNamer.
* PunnyName: Dina Sarazu, Peter Paul (husband of Mary).
** Also, Alan, [[spoiler:who's an Alien.]]
* RedEyesTakeWarning: When we see the effects of [[spoiler: [[http://www.joyceandwalky.com/d/20030810.html what happens when someone gets mindwiped one too many times]].]]
* RedemptionInTheRain: Walky's "it's the rain" speech
* SeparatedAtBirth: [[spoiler:Sal and Walky.]]
* ShootTheDog: Sal shooting Tony, in a StoryArc appropriately entitled "Kill Your Friends".
* ShoutOut: Walky seeks inspiration for how to effectively lead his team, and it comes [[http://www.joyceandwalky.com/d/20030629.html crashing through a window.]] Turns out Willis was making references to Franchise/{{Batman}} even before he started parodying him explicitly.
** And the news-header [[http://www.joyceandwalky.com/d/20040105.html in the last panel here]] refers to two of the Fensler Film spoofs on AndKnowingIsHalfTheBattle ("Pork chop sandwiches!" and "Nice catch, el blanco nino").
* ShrinkingViolet: Dina, although [[spoiler: she sadly doesn't get a BeautifulAllAlong moment]].
* SmallGirlBigGun: Joyce, to the point where it becomes a RunningGag.
* SmiteMeOhMightySmiter: Joyce has doubts of God's existence, so she uses the Power Booster Rod to contact The Wanderer, who is utterly baffled as to why she would think he would be able to answer.
* SiblingRivalry: The ultimate source of Beef's tragic FaceHeelTurn.
* SpyCatsuit: Lampshaded.
* StockShticks: "[[http://www.joyceandwalky.com/d/20040518.html I just flew in from New York,]] [[PreAssKickingOneLiner an' boy are my arms gonna be tired.]]
* SummonBiggerFish: When Joyce uses the Power Booster Rod to attract the attention of The Wanderer after SEMME is attacked by the Britjas.
* SuperSpeed: Robin - she once ate over 1800 doughnuts in under an hour, in fifteen Tim Horton shops around [[ShoutOut a certain town in Canada]]
* SuperSoldier: The Abductees.
* SuperWindowJump: Sal. Frequently lampshaded.
* SwitchedAtBirth: Sal and Beef
* TakeThat: A story takes place in a [[ComicBookTime time-frozen]] small town in Canada, taking place in large part in a high school, where a fish can be seen floating in midair. c.f. ''Webcomic/{{Avalon}}''.
** Another take that to ''Webcomic/{{Avalon}}'' in the announcement of ''Dumbing of Age'':
---> "I do intend to finish [''Joyce and Walky!''], and not, like, end everything with a text story where [[http://www.avalonhigh.com/ everyone becomes lesbians.]]"
* TemptingFate: [[http://www.joyceandwalky.com/d/20020515.html Lampshaded.]]
* ThereAreNoTherapists: Lampshaded at least once. After the series ended, Willis even did a storyline about it.
* ThereWasADoor: Sal. It became a RunningGag with her. She even Lampshades it while using a door ''as a blunt instrument'' on Billie.
-->'''Sal:''' "Folks're always tellin' me to use the door."
* ThrowAwayCountry: Invoked by the Head Alien, who figures no one would notice if he just froze Canada. "God''damn'' was I right!"
* TimeStandsStill: The Head Alien creates a device that can do this and tests it on Canada.
* TitleDrop: [[http://www.joyceandwalky.com/d/20041026.html It's Walky.]]
* TookALevelInBadAss: Billie actually dares to challenge [[DarkActionGirl Sal]] over Danny and manages to give a surprisingly good account of herself due to martial arts training and a childhood spent fighting with Walky.
* TotemPoleTrench: In [[http://www.joyceandwalky.com/d/20020210.html this]] '' strip, Joyce and Dina use a more specific version to pretend to be Jason.
* TranslationTrainWreck: Translations of [[spoiler:Martian]] speech come out this way.
-->'''''Excellent.''' They wish '''also''' do battle. This is satisfy.''

* TwoWordsObviousTrope: "Four words...[[spoiler:[[LukeIAmYourFather your twin sister, Sal]]]]."
* UnexpectedSuccessor: Walky's mother becoming head of SEMME.
* UnexplainedRecovery: [[spoiler:Alan.]] [[LampshadeHanging Lampshaded.]]
* TheUnmasquedWorld: The Aliens come out of hiding and attack Denver about halfway through the series.
* UnpredictableResults: The Head Alien's time-freezing ray, which at first seems to just cause GenderBender but makes reality gradually more wibbly the longer it lasts. The fact that the ray was used to freeze the Cheese, who is functionally if not literally God in the Walkyverse, may have had something to do with this.
* UnresolvedSexualTension: Willis had way too much fun with Joyce and Walky's. By the time it was released it had the force of a small thermonuclear device.
-->''[[ManOfSteelWomanOfKleenex Man of steel.]] [[AvertedTrope Woman of steel.]] [[FunnyMoments Bed of Kleenex.]]''
* UnbrokenVigil: [[http://joyceandwalky.com/d/20010409.html Seen here.]] (''TheSoundOfMusic'' lyrics he's singing are what brought her out of it last time she was comatose.)
* UnroboticReveal: Alan.
* UnsoundEffect: [[http://www.joyceandwalky.com/d/20031025.html CROTCH KICK!]]
* UnstoppableRage: Often - usually after Head Alien has pushed one of them a little ''too'' far.
* UpperClassTwit: Subverted: Jason is British and upper class, wears a bowtie almost all the time, and had a rich and powerful father, but is in fact more serious and competent than most of his squad.
* TheVoiceless: Marcie. She isn't actually mute, but she [[DumbingOfAge definitely is in another universe.]]
* WellIntentionedExtremist: Sal, much of the time, verging on KnightTemplar in places[[http://www.joyceandwalky.com/d/20020709.html [1]]]
* WeNamedTheDogIndiana: Joyce's dogs, Walkies and Daniel. Both times, she had been mindwiped of the respective boy's existence, and it was unintentional. When introducing Walky to her parents, they believe Walky was named after the dog. He retorts with an Indiana Jones reference.
* WhatMeasureIsANonHuman: The Purple Aliens, whom the SEMME agents happily slaughter by the saucerful.
* WrenchWench: Lith.
* YouSayTomato: Walky cracks up because of how a British character pronounces his name.
* YourApprovalFillsMeWithShame: After Danny asks if he, Joe, Rachel and uber-nerd Howard are on a suicide mission, Joe outlines why it's not and explains intangibility by bringing up [[ComicBook/{{X-Men}} Kitty Pryde.]]
-->'''Howard:''' {{Nerd}}! {{Nerd}}! OneOfUs! OneOfUs!
-->''' Joe:''' ''Now I'' want it to be a suicide mission.

[[folder:''Joyce & Walky!'']]
* AfterTheEnd: The comic's tagline describes ''J&W!'' as "post-apocalyptic." Given that said apocalypse was averted, it's debatable how well the description fits.
* AlternateUniverse: Hoo boy. The villain's entire plot revolves around building an army out of the future kids of potential pairings, and that's just for starters...
* AprilFoolsDay: 2008 had Ultra-Car getting hit with a missile, Joyce and Walky inside declaring their hatred for each other, and Head Alien and Monkey Master having a DancePartyEnding.
* ArbitrarySkepticism: Monkey Master disbelieves Head Alien II's existence and exploits. Head Alien II assumes this is the reason [[SubvertedTrope until Monkey Master tells him it's because]] "that would mean you actually ''succeeded'' at something."
** Played straight later: even after all he's seen and done, Joe ''still'' denies the existance of Danny's alt-future kid DJ.
-->'''Joe:''' Am I the ''only one'' who refuses to dignify this retarded development?
* BackToSchool: PlayedStraight. Joyce was abducted by SEMME before she could finish college and Walky never started, so both start taking courses once the war's over. [[OneHourWorkWeek The plot never focuses on it, granted...]]
* BackFromTheDead[=/=]BackForTheFinale: [[spoiler:Head Alien ''I''. "That's right, I'm original recipe. [[LetsDance Wanna dance?]]"]]
* BadJobWorseUniform: Sal and her job at Pluto 9571.
-->'''Sal:''' These antennae can be used as stranglin' instruments.
-->'''Walky:''' Than we shall remain silent.
* BenevolentBoss: Joe, as head of Rosenthal Industries. Danny works for him.
* BestWoman: Danny implied he would've ended up Joyce's maid of honor if Becky hadn't popped up.
-->'''Danny:''' I'm off the hook?
-->'''Walky:''' You're off the hook.
* BrainwashedAndCrazy: How the [[spoiler:alt-universe future kids end up, for the most part.]]
* BurgerFool: Sal ends up as one when forced into the working world.
* CallBack: Sal calls Joyce's use of her jetpack cheating when recounting one of their ''It's Walky!''-era fights to Becky. Later, whilst fighting the [[spoiler:brainwashed alt-future kids]], Joyce gleefully refers to the use of her jetpack as cheating as she and Walky fly into battle.
** Joyce mocks Walky with his dialogue from [[http://www.joyceandwalky.com/d/20000205.html these]] [[http://www.joyceandwalky.com/d/20000206.html comics]] when he returns from his first day of student-teaching (which of course requires him to wear a tie.)
-->'''Walky:''' I'll have you know this is a clip-on.
-->'''Joyce:''' You look adorable.
** When Joyce and Becky are having an argument, Joyce won't agree to let Becky in until Becky admits she's [[http://www.joyceandwalky.com/d/20020330.html beautiful, smart, and queen of the ponies.]]
* TheCameo: Joyce logs onto a [[AllGirlsLikePonies pony]] chatroom in the hopes of finding a new friend to be her maid of honor, only to become discouraged and give up. [[Webcomic/{{Shortpacked}} Amber is on the same forum.]]
* CerebusRetcon: We get an explanation for the duct tape restraints. Apparently it worked on the abductees when they were kids--and when they got old enough to escape, mental suggestions were planted in their brains creating a psychological inability to break the tape.
* ChekhovsGun: Duct tape.
* {{Crossover}}: With ''Webcomic/{{Shortpacked}}'' for the wedding. Robin is officiating, and Mike is invited. They bring Leslie and Amber as their plus-ones and they all show up in Ultra-Car.
* ClueFromEd: The RubberBandHistory version of TheUnmasquedWorld arc comes with the following note from Willis.
-->''Longtime It's Walky! readers may find this scene familiar. Sort of.''
-->''Hint: Things are different.''
* CrackPairing: Invoked with the alternate-reality kids for the future. Some of them have really bizarre parentage--[[ScrewYourself the kid of Doc and Doc's clone]] and [[ADateWithRosiePalms Harold and]] [[CargoShip a tube sock]] are some of the ''less'' bizarre examples.
* DeadGuyOnDisplay: The final fate of Head Alien I[[spoiler:'s body]]--in the ''Smithsonian'', no less.
* {{Doppelganger}}: [[spoiler:Rachel's been swapped out for an Alien in a robotic Rachel suit.]]
* {{Fainting}}: Happens to Danny and Billie when faced with the reality of D.J.'s existence for the first time.
* FantasticRacism: Lampshaded and subverted.
-->'''Head Alien II:''' Hey, you stupid monkey! Those were the guys on ''our'' side! C'mon!
-->'''Monkey Master:''' All these humans look alike!
-->'''Head Alien II:''' ...That's sort of a cliche, don't you think?
-->'''Monkey Master:''' I'm serious. They're all wearing the same damn outfit.
-->'''Head Alien II:''' Oh. Well. Point taken.
** Played straight (well, straight''er'') in a different instance--Sal is furious to discover most of her co-workers at Pluto 9571 are Aliens and is sent to sensitivity training.
* FlashBack: An extended one happens early on, which introduces us to Dorothy and tells the story of how Walky became an honor student in high school.
* FirstEpisodeSpoiler: Jason and Sal don't last, which is why Sal now lives with Joyce and Walky.
* FriendsWithBenefits: Jason and Sal try this for a while after their relationship falls apart. It doesn't work out.
* FourthWallPortrait: [[http://www.joyceandwalky.com/d/20080202.html Walky takes a life-drawing class and is criticized by his professor for "making up anatomy."]]
-->'''Joyce:''' Were you drawing lips again?
* TheFundamentalist: Becky's dad. [[TheNiles He's used to show]] [[CharacterDevelopment how far Joyce has come.]]
* GiftOfTheMagiPlot: [[http://www.joyceandwalky.com/d/20061223.html Well, half of one, anyway.]]
* GrandTheftMe: [[spoiler:HAII eventually pulls this on Dorothy as one last resort--only for it to work out for HA''I'' instead.]]
* GogglesDoNothing: The alt-future kids all wear goggles, but mostly on their foreheads. What purpose they serve is never explained, but given that the kids bitch at each other for stealing each other's looks they're probably [[RuleOfCool just there for esthetic reasons.]]
* GotMeDoingIt: Joyce now also uses "wiigii" instead of "woo-hoo", and probably picked it up from Walky.
* GroinAttack: A self-inflicted one, [[http://www.joyceandwalky.com/d/20090124.html based on bad advice from Joe]] regarding the application of Icy-Hot.
* FriendlessBackground: Jason's employers are ''very'' happy that he comes from one of these.
* HalloweenCosplay: On occasion, with the most memorable instance of Joyce being ''just'' a word away from [[LeaningOnTheFourthWall implying Walky was dressed as David Willis.]] [[http://www.joyceandwalky.com/d/20071027.html Walky quickly clarifies]] that his costume is actually Franchise/HarryPotter.
* [[HappilyMarried Happily Engaged and Living Together]]: The titular duo. While Joyce does become a tad paranoid when Walky starts hanging around Dorothy, their relationship is remarkably drama-free and all of their arguments are petty and short-lived.
* HenpeckedHusband: Danny. [[http://www.joyceandwalky.com/d/20051029.html He doesn't seem to mind.]]
* HeroicSacrifice: [[spoiler:D.J. dies getting an organ transplant for a dying Sal, which he forced a doctor to do at gunpoint.]]
* HoistByHisOwnPetard: [[spoiler:Dorothy's mind, like most abductee minds, is wired to be psychologically unable to break duct tape restraints--a fact Machete exploits when he tapes HAI-in-Dorothy's-body to the wall during the wedding arc.]]
* HopeSpot: The multitude of alternate-future kids have been chained up by Head Alien II, but one (D.J. Wilcox) escaped. The others think he'll be of some help, until...
-->'''HAII:''' I see the hope on your faces, and I know the reason for it. Hell, I ''put'' it there. You know, to taunt you, if only for a few minutes. That's right--I ''let'' D.J. Wilcox escape.
-->''cue OhCrap look on the fleeing D.J.'s face''
-->'''HAII:''' It should be fun.
* {{Hypocrite}}: Joyce edges into this territory when she has a mini-freakout over Walky and Dorothy hanging out. Walky points out that she pined after both Danny and Joe and he doesn't take issue with them being around.
* IfYouEverDoAnythingToHurtHer: Walky threatens Jason with this when he finds out he and Sal have been sneaking around. Jason is unimpressed.
-->'''Jason:''' You may be superhuman, but I remember you have a soft neck.
* ImNotHereToMakeFriends: Jason's excuse for his lack of social life.
* IHaveBoobsYouMustObey: Walky's right - [[http://www.joyceandwalky.com/d/20100529.html that was a clear abuse of Joyce's power]].
* InsistentTerminology: Pluto 9571 isn't a theme restaurant, it's a ''dining experience.''
* IntangibleMan[=/=]VoluntaryShapeshifting: Electric Man, and later [[spoiler:Head Alien II.]]
* InternalHomage: [[http://joyceandwalky.com/d/20070910.html Hey, Sal! Yeah, college is fine...]]
* JustInTime: [[spoiler:Bobby Walkerton, to prevent Head Alien I from retreating.]]
* LamarckWasRight: [[spoiler:Walky's immunity to mindwipes and Joyce's extreme mathematical skill have become genetically ingrained somehow, resulting in a kid who can ''wipe people's mind via physical and psychic contact.'']] [[HandWave Apparently the resurrection chamber can futz around with acquired and genetic traits.]]
* LeftForDead: Head Alien II does this for Sal and D.J., in spite of Monkey Master's insistence that D.J. still has vital signs and he should finish the job.
* LetsHaveAnotherBaby: [[AvertedTrope Averted]] with Danny and Billie, whose plans for an "Obama baby" go off without a hitch.
* MarriedToTheJob: Jason, kind of. While he ''does'' love his job, his issues are mostly unrelated to that and he considers his career choice is a convenient scapegoat for said issues.
* MeaningfulEcho: Back to [[http://joyceandwalky.com/d/19991219.html this Roomies! strip.]] D.J. uses Danny's {{Anvilicious}} moralizing as his last words to his alt-universe father, and in doing so lends them a small bit of dignity.
-->'''DJ:''' I shouldn't be interacting with you to begin with. I only initiated it for my own selfish reasons. So I deserve any ire thrown my way. This was stupid, plain and simple. But hey, principals mean diddly squat without the experiences to back them up, right?
* TheMole: [[spoiler:Dorothy and Rachel, the latter of whom turns out to be a robot replacement of the original.]]
* NoDialogueEpisode: Joyce and Walky's wedding ceremony--at least until [[spoiler:Head Alien I gatecrashes.]]
* NoHoldsBarredBeatdown: Sal gives Head Alien II a damn good thrashing [[spoiler:while having just undergone organ transplants.]]
* NoMereWindmill: [[spoiler:Turns out Walky's mom's conversations with the Head Alien weren't hallucinations after all.]]
* NonindicativeName: Subverted--Machete, who doesn't carry any sort of blade, is eventually revealed to have gotten the name from his ability to [[spoiler:cut people's memories out of them mind-wiper style.]]
* ObnoxiousInLaws: Sal, to Joyce.
* OverlyLongName: "I bet you never expected [[spoiler: my army of brainwashed]] kids-of-your-friends from the future! ... [[LampshadeHanging Doesn't roll of the tongue very easily, but not everything good is marketable.]]"
* {{Revenge}}: Joyce and Walky are ready to flee HAII's army when Machete mentions he killed [[spoiler:Sal,]] at which point they charge back into battle. Jason is a little less rash but follows them when Machete says HAII recorded the killing and watches it over and over.
* RightThroughTheWall: Joyce and Walky. It gets Becky's dad on their case and, well, Becky...
-->'''Becky:''' What's that noise I sometimes hear in here? Stampeding cattle?
-->'''Joyce:''' {{Scrabble}}. [[BlatantLies We play very loud Scrabble]].
* RubberBandHistory: The AlternateUniverse arc starts with a replay of the TheUnmasquedWorld arc of ''It's Walky'', except Joe and Joyce are together now and Walky is nowhere in sight...and that's just the tip of the iceberg.
* ScheduleSlip: Multiple, which resulted in the ''finale'' only being half-finished.
* SelfServingMemory: Joyce has got a bit of a case of this with regards to her relationship with Danny in ''Roomies!''.
* ShotInTheAss: [[spoiler:Joyce's mom.]] She withholds the location of the wound long enough to [[spoiler:guilt Joyce into having kids.]]
* StatusQuoIsGod: [[spoiler:Head Alien I, outnumbered and on the retreat, suggests this: he rebuilds his army, Joyce and Walky rebuild SEMME, and the cycle of plotting-and-thwarting continue just like the old days.]]
* StuffedIntoTheFridge: Averted. Willis realized that that he'd done this to [[spoiler:Rachel]] during the wedding storyline and wasn't happy about it, so he set up a storyline in ''Webcomic/{{Shortpacked}}'' specifically to fix the problem.
* TemptingFate: [[LampshadeHanging Lampshaded.]]
-->'''Joe:''' Everything's going to be completely different, isn't it?
-->'''Danny:''' Yep. And I'm completely ready. ... ''Nothing can possibly go wrong!''
-->''Joe ducks under the table, than cautiously pokes his head up''
-->'''Joe:''' Nothing happened.
-->'''Danny:''' Told you everything is different.
** And PlayedStraight a moment later--after Danny's big speech about how he feels ready for any challenge life lobs at him, D.J. shows up and claims to be his son.
* UnderTheMistletoe: Joyce and Sal freak out when they find themselves under it in the Dec. 2005 wallpaper.
* WeddingDay: Danny and Billie's wedding, though the duo are out of focus in favor of highlighting Sal and Joyce's hostility towards each other regarding how ''their'' relationships with Danny ended up. The comic also ends on one--[[ScheduleSlip or is about to, anyway]]--between Joyce and Walky themselves.
* WeddingSmashers: [[spoiler:Head Alien I in Dorothy's body.]] [[LampshadeHanging Lampshaded.]]
-->''Sorry, took "wedding crasher" a wee bit too ''literally.''
* WithThisRing: Joe fumbles it at Danny and Billie's wedding, sending Sal and Joyce scrambling to beat each other to get it, much to the irritation of the bride and groom. Sarah beats both of them to it.
-->'''Sal and Joyce:''' [[HypocriticalHumor Drama queen.]]
