  • This Sunday strip has Phoebe and her dad talking while playing a video game together, and it's just so sweet.
  • When Dakota is getting an award from the goblins, she invites Phoebe and Marigold so the latter can translate.

Whether due to actually liking her, or just being relieved that her translator's there, it's still a hug.
    • And in the next strip, she outright calls Phoebe a friend (albeit in quotations) and when she indirectly calls Phoebe pathetic, she insists it's "the kind where it's a compliment".

  • Marigold asks Phoebe to give her The Roast as part of her humility lessons. After a few attempts at genuine criticism fall flat, Phoebe goes for the kill.
    Phoebe: The thing about Marigold is, she's wrong about why people like her. Why I like her, at any rate. It's not because she's pretty or magic or a unicorn. It's because she wants to share her pretty magic unicornosity with people. With me. Marigold's not actually selfish. At the end of the day she's the least selfish person I know!
    Marigold: [visibly enraged] You take that back!!!
