Dumbing of Age
Walky is a fountain for these.
Did. She have. A CHEST WINDOW?
The line to get into Danny's room.
For the next five minutes, we don't know each other.
"Just promise me I'm not walking into some dumb teenage drama or sitcom misunderstanding."
Mike gets angry.
This is pretty funny, but with context, it becomes even funnier. The previous strips had involved drama with Ethan being gay. In this strip, Ethan comes to a resolution...and then the punchline hits, releasing several weeks of tension at once. In addition, this was the day that Willis released the "Sexiest Man" poll.
"Geez, Joe, your dad is just you with a beard."
Or, if you think Joe's punchline is funnier: "I wish I could say he was only like this after the divorce."
A worthy salute.
"I needed to leave."
Shoving stuff into holes.
Danny mentions needing to stay away from people Amber knows, due to recent events. And then, Sal, whom he has been forming a friendship with, shows up. The Alt Text really sells it:
man the writer sure hates this kid don't he
Joyce finds something interesting in Sarah's drawer.
"Well I've ruled out "karaoke microphone"."
Danny and Ethan's I Know You Know I Know battle.
Ethan: I'm struggling to find a way to ask if you know about the thing-she-does without tipping you off about the thing-she-does if you didn't already know.
Danny: I hope to God you're thinking about what I think you are, because God help her if there's more than one.
And then, for possibly the first time in the comic, Danny gets to the point:
Danny: —Okay, she's AMAZI-GIRL, all right? We're both talking about her being Amazi-Girl?
Ethan: "Yes. Thank you. That was getting kind of stretchy."
Why did Mike go after Walky? That's why.
excuse me, vinegar, i have this baking soda that i need you to look at
Mike interrupts an otherwise sweet moment as only he can:
Mike: ...She was drunk, not the bear.
Mike: Fine, they were both drunk.
