Take Your Time

Oh noooooo! More talking? Why?? These people are going to be banished from the strip in a month! I know comic kvetchers are a hard group to please, but if Carol and Jack fell into each other's arms in one panel, and Tommie drove into the distance as Lily hopped the fence in another panel, and we were back in New York on Tuesday, I think we'd all be happy, right guys?

Loose Ends

"Get out your washboard and stand back.  I'm finally going to take off this turtleneck, which I have worn for months as the armor of my grief.  Also, I'm going to need you to, you know, take care of that orphaned deer that is around here somewhere.  And can you just like, get with Carol so that she doesn't spend another two weeks telling someone about how you're the love of her life?  Then I'll just load up the Packard and be on my way."

Compassion, really? I thought Tommie was pretty compassionate when she was spinning babies out of Nina What's-her-face. Maybe it was the hard knocks of the music industry that drained her compassion. Working with "Stone Cold" Dan Diller and Rick-E from Boys on the Block (obviously a street thug)... the nonstop Ruben sandwiches... sure, that could hollow the soul out of anyone.

Everyone's Great

And the work of like, running my supposed vet clinic while I was mysteriously gone for some unspecified amount of time. But mostly, the work of the heart. (Is that like, cardio?)

Ugh, excuse me while I go vomit.

Not Now

It's okay, Jack. In retribution, Carol has painted all your little things mint.

The Best Thing That Could Have Happened

Wait, isn't Jack some sort of veterinarian?  Presumably one who could treat a horse with an injured foot and not force that horse to hobble home for forty miles.  

Maybe the long journey is where he first encountered the shadow creature that he has now lured here to feed on Carol's soul.

Oh no. She's going to make him breakfast. It's starting all over again. IT'S STARTING ALL OVER AGAIN!
