Oh, It Sounds Crazy, All Right!

Tommie is supposed to be the smart, sensible one, right? Just checking.

P.S. Margo may or may not inspire me to update the banner... To tell you the truth, I almost updated it to last week's instant classic "Everyone in this town knows you've got a fawn in your car." But I think Margo's will age better.

Not Coming Home

It's always Tommie's night to cook.  As the Alpha Roommate, Margo delegates all chores to the  underlings.  And Lu Ann isn't allowed to use any cooking implement stronger than an Easy Bake Oven.  But Margo is not dropping $75 on a sack of take-out tonight, so you best get yourself home and heat her up a frozen pizza.

What do we think Tommie is looking at in the last panel?  Is Dr. Jack trying to mate Lily with his aggressive colt?  Has Lily, who has grown comfortable with the confined spaces of a Manhattan apartment/Packard/sleazy motel, had an agoraphobic freak out on Dr. Jack?

Too Tired

Well you could've at least texted! ...well, maybe not.

Work Will Set You Free

Oh, Jack.  It's probably not a great idea to employ a veterinary assistant with no animal medicine qualifications and who locks her orphan fawn in the car without even cracking the window!  Also, if you're looking for someone with a strong work ethic, Tommie hasn't reported to work in over a year.  Seems like a solid plan.

That's Crazy, Jack!

There are about a hundred million things going on in New York City, and Tommie has to drive to Pittsburgh and upstate New York to find a plotline??

Well they can keep her. Tommie is not doing her part as an A3G lady.

She flies in to New York after months in Europe, immediately drives out to PA, snags a deer, drives back, never even gives her roommates a chance to get a discount at Harrod's before her fiance mysteriously disappears, and then packs up the little Lyme's disease machine for Happiness Falls? Where she's definitely going to take this job because she's too weak-willed not to? And plus I think she got fired before?

If I was Margo, I'd change the locks and use her room as a closet at this point.

Not Interested

I'm sorry for being dismissive, presumptuous, and rude before, Jack. Oh, you have a proposition? I don't want to hear it, I'm sure it's terrible, and I hope you die in a fire.

Everyone in This Town Knows You've Got a Fawn in Your Car

Gosh, Happiness Falls isn't like New York City at all! In New York City, you can stow a deer in your apartment for weeks, even months without people noticing. Here, you leave one lousy fawn in your car overnight, who bleats like a goat for nine measly hours, and suddenly everyone's talking about you.

Um. But seriously, this is a little weird. He thinks Tommie's cute?
