    That’ll do it.

    What was her name, Gene?

    I guess we’ll see. This could be the big finale or another threadbare plot gimmick—the last-minute fight before the big makeup/wedding scene.

    Still, is it worth noting that Mary Lou didn’t seem to be wearing a ring (specifically, Gene’s great-grandmother’s) in last Thursday’s strip?

    Why does his mom assume that he did something? Hmm…

    Maybe because he said, “Maybe it’s my fault”. The ‘it’ in that phrase usually refers to an action.

    Okay, Gene, then what did you NOT do?

    Welcome to the world of trying to decipher exactly what goes on in the feminine brain my good boy. Where else would “if you don’t know, I’m certainly not going to tell you” be logical.

    Am I silly? The last panel can be read as if the fight was because he said, “I’m not perfect!”

    Get a troll life, you mean?

    I love your reflexive username, by the way.

    @Tony 

    Maybe, in the third panel?

    Because he’s a guy and we’re wired that way. We can’t help but love who we love.

    Gene better get used to it. If they do get married, he’s going to be ‘not perfect’ a lot. That ’s just part of the job description.

    I’m perfect………………ly capable of being imperfect…

    She’s been married for years so how often does Arlo say something wrong? Let me count the times.

    could be ML has too high expectations of Gene. she seems the driving force in the relationship with him in the supporting role. maybe she made one too many demands on him and he is having second and third thoughts about things. that’s why the question of how did Arlo know about Janis? Arlo’s answer is it’s a calculated risk.
