Tear Jerker: Shortpacked!
This Shortpacked! strip where Robin realizes that every one of the goals she made for the future when she was little never came true. With Amber and Mike moving out she has to cross "Live in a big house with all my friends forever" off (made worse by the fact that she was the one who told Amber to leave).
That comes back to bite her in the ass later, when she goes on another Cadbury egg cereal bender and manages to achieve world peace... by walking out on Leslie, having sex with Jacob Manley, filming it, and accidentally setting it to "public" when she puts it on YouTube for herself to see. The list was what set everything in motion.
Well, maybe I want to be allowed to be angry! Maybe I want to be the one who gets to punch things! Maybe I want to have the things that I want! Like a mom and a dad and a family. And a partner. Or a wife.
The storyline where Amber's dad dies is absolutely tragic. Makes you cry for Faz, of all people. The little sleaze is human after all, it seems...
