And the shouting match commences!
I hear, “lost in his own museum” and I can only think of Marcus Brody. (sp) Underrated companion of the great Doctor Jones.
I suspect its easy to do with the big libraries.
I’ve got lost for a few seconds in my office before and that’s just one room.
(someone moved a cabinet which I unknowingly used as a point of reference and was a bit confuzzled where I was for a few moments)
I am sooo glad I wasn’t the only one who instantly thought of Brody 😆
Dark Kuno- And I was looking over my shoulder for Indie’s dad. He knows where all the best places are.
Oh man. Totally.
Getting lost in your own museum can’t be fun, getting trapped in your museum’s security measures because you forgot the code to deactivate them is likely a laugh a minute.
Been there, almost… Not a museum, and not trapped, but tripped the alarm and couldn’t find the reset code (which I never managed to memorize). So I had to make a choice, either run away and hope for the best, or stay and confront the guard dogs…
Those were big dogs, not the least bit cuddly, and they had me sitting nicely until the guards caught up…
I’m not afraid of dogs, but for these I was prepared to make an exception…
He’s reminded me of Marcus Brody since this strip, but this just seals it.
Lovely analogy. The whole setup and capstone with Brody was one of my favorite parts of that film.
Beat me to it.
Hay, Phix! I’m an electrical engineer who gets lost inside of Radio Shack… 😉
that’s different… unless you work there..
Ooh.. This is gonna be fun..
PS. It seems that the demon collective isn’t very versed in how relationships, flings, and such work. I’d looove to see what happens if some dude ( or gal) fires-up Tina’s lovin’ side.. “demons in love” …. Heh..
We are still waiting for the group to take Tina to there favorite bar, so that she can meet the bartender there. Then they will spend an hour or ten looking into each others eyes while they listen to each other listening to each other listening…
I’m waiting for 2 of Tina’s demons to fall for each other.
Does that qualify as narcissism?
Oh, that was delightful. Wouldn’t have thought of that!
I’ve thought Tina needed to meet her male counterpart. A two “person” orgy.
It’s dangerous to fire up Tina. http://wapsisquare.com/comic/the-smell-of-burning-spider/
Okay, this is humorous, but someone help. I’m afraid I can’t exactly pin down what part of this Monica is angry about.
Is she worried that Phix is going to emotionally hurt her boss? Is just irritated that it’s taken place period, and she’s not stuck with the mental image? XD
I’m sorry, typoed… “NOW stuck with the mental image?”
Or that she was lesf out of the loop by both Phix and her boss?
I dunno, maybe Monica is being snarky because she knows Tina is having some sport with her, and it was all in fun until she made the absurd remark that he could be a smooth ladies man, rendering Monica from snarky to incredulous…
M and Tina are both just having fun with each other. 🙂
Yeah, it shows in her face – this isn’t the angry Monica. Ths one seems more amused, and perhaps dubious of Phix’s taste in men…
Besides, it’s not like this comes as any surprise to her – Phix dropped a pretty clear hint about it quite a while ago…
Besides, the 3½ times repeated “shocked” was a clue. If she has to explain a facial expression like that, it’s because it isn’t really the one she is wearing.
Paul, seems you and I must be the only two here who got the Louis Renault reference . . . .
Actually, it seemed she was being more sarcastic than shocked – She already knew they dated, and had already made the ‘maneater’ joke – I think its more just “I did not need to hear that out loud!”
Maybe Tina thinks if it’s “just us girls” she can dish the dirt freely…..
Oh, I see Paul snuck in with the truth while I was in the throes of composing my speculation. 😉
Yeah, her first face didn’t seem angry, so this makes sense. But I still don’t quite understand the dialogue in the last panel.
Someone off-panel is speaking, apparently.
If it is someone off shot, my money’s on Shelly.
Haha. There may be snow on the roof, but there’s still fire in the furnace!
Hey now, they may simply have played cards all night. I hear old people like to do that.
Yes, clearly when they said they’d “get a room” they simply meant they’d play board games.
Nudge may be gone, but Tina is still the mistress of the chain yank that rattles the cage…
Monica appears to be about to do herself a mischief on the edge of the counter…
“At museum’s he’s allowed to touch the exhibits.” Haha. Maybe Tina’s onto something and the old boy’s an expert on petting the kitties for funds.
BTW. that stupid beer commercial always has me rolling my eyes and looking for the kill button my my TV remote.
My favorite is the one where he pops out of the newly cut hole in the ice with a fish in his hands, while the other guy does a double take.
Two thoughts come to mind:
1) If sphinxes are generally shallow in sexual relationships, what does that mean for Shelly and Justin?
2) Who says the last line? Has a 3rd person joined the conversation?
On re-reading, I’m not sure if point 1 is relevant (considering they’re joking around).
You’ll see tomorrow. 😉
I’ll be amused if it’s Phix joining in. 😀
Am I the only one that expects Monica’s Boss to be the one speaking in the last panel?
Also long time reader, first time posting and still wanting more art from Paul
“I’d like to solve the puzzle, Pat?”
It could be, but it could also be Shelly or even Maya, I think. It would really be about time for Maya to meet Tina.
“Only vowels left, so go ahead…”
# 1 is the one I would expect Monica and Tina would move to, eventually. Now that Shelly’s manifested her sphinxness and may be immortal (and is certainly 80,000 years older, mentally), I’d suspect her friends in the know will be wondering how this is going to work out, if it is. But what appears to be the sudden arrival of a new person may change the conversation…
Shelly has pretty much said that she is not immortal
Hmm, who said the last line?
Yea, I wondered the same thing.
So, Monica’s boss is Marcus Brody?
Would make sense. Phix has been around since ancient man it seems. She’s probably had her fair share of lustful relationships with warriors that would put 300 to shame.
After a while, the ideal physical man would be boring (and harder to find in the modern world). So she’d be looking for quirky, which Monica’s absent-minded boss seems to be (based on the early comics where he actually appeared ^_^ ).
I’ve got no idea what sphinxes look for (hey I’m clueless enough about human women), but he has his points. He’s educated enough to be interesting to talk to, he’s old enough – by human standards – to get some stability in his life, and he seems like a decent fellow. So maybe it just turns out to be a sphinxish one-year-stand; a girl needs to get out of the library once in a while.
The mutual ground of both being ‘lost in their own museum’ could be part of the appeal.
Maybe she’s just looking for some intellectual…well…stimulation?
Surprised Moni didn’t say “Gashpilkis in my ganectagazoink!” like Mike Myers.
Although i did almost hear her talking in a Woody Allen voice at first.
Yeah I could see Monica sporting Indys’ Fedora and whip and Leather jacket and…did it just get HOTTER in here?
Tina does love her black tank tops, doesn’t she?
Henry, Indy follow me; I know the way! HEYAH! (Got lost in his own museum, hm?)
