    Another good one…

    Hmm, I think he’s implying he’d like to introduce some kind of “fluid” to Drew’s “eggs” but I’m not quite sure…

    A little crude though, gimmick.

    Alex is looking softer, prettier, less stressed. What makes us think that he’s not “hitting” on her?

    ^Because in the first panel it shows him looking at Drew, and Alex isn’t in the picture at all.

    I’ve never caught up with the premise that the lighter-haired blonde (Drew?) is considered hot and the slightly-darker-haired blonde (Alex?) less so. They both have equally attractive faces and body forms. (Subject to the limitations of the drawing, I guess.)

    If there’s anyplace that someone would try to hit on somebody by using the boiled egg into a bottle trick, it would be MIT. After all IHTFP does stand for “I have tricky flirtation projects”.

    someone is FINALLY taking the p.o.v. of a young woman who is both bright and “hot”….the dilemma of the person others routinely hit on because of her looks. As used as Alex had been to rejection and the feeling (compared to Drew) of being less-than, beauty-wise - so is Drew used to being hit upon by everybody and his brother. She has reason to envy Alex her love affair with Leo. How will Drew, handicapped by good looks, know the heat & arm-candy seeking dudes from Mr. Real Deal? I like this egg-man she has just dismissed.

    ok, anybody out there know the trick for getting the egg back out of the bottle?

    Whoa! Another way to get egg on your face without actually having it happen.

    maybe it’s the nose, jojoba2yaleperson, that seems to be the major difference…..or maybe the girl that doesn’t get hit on has this offensive body odor that is undetectable through cyberspace but all-too-apparent amongst the tantalizing aromas of boiled hot dogs in the MIT cafeteria

    How to get the egg out of the bottle: turn the bottle upside down and step into a decompression chamber.

    A bit (or is it a LOT) of water, swirl around, invert to get the egg in position, and (gently) heat the bottle; either the egg ejects, or the bottle shatters, don’t remember which…
