    I wonder if Kitten is finding all this stuff out now. She might want to do some tattoo removal.
    It was easy to tell Rupert was a fake. New Zealanders put “wee” in every second sentence.

    “We” did some checking? What did Gil do, hire Jim Rockford? I can’t imagine how or when he would have had time to turn private detective. First it was Hobart’s stalking of his ex-wife, then Wildcat Maris’ backstabbing, now Ransom Hale’s real identity. Maybe Gil’s in the wrong profession.

    Gil should have spent more time coaching and less time doing the job that parents should have been doing. Too bad he isn’t that interested in his own children as much.

    Rupert Hall…..sounds like a pop star from the 1970’s….

    It’s easy to be tough when you have Arthue Fonzarelli waiting nearby. AAAAAYYEE! Thor p, Gil Thor p. Shaken not stirred. Even malcontents like Ransom, Rupert, Random Task cannot escape the local exploding eye epidemic.

    Kitten’s giving Gil that “Oh, My” look.

    The way this is reading it sound like someone is a descendant of the detective on the old Perry Mason show. Perry wouldn’t have been nearly as good in court without him.

    I think Gil is going to confiscate the bootleg DVDs and use them for a fundraiser for new baseball uniforms. And when exactly did Gil go to Dayton? Anyone remember that in the strips in the last thirty years?

    Gil’s been to Brockway, Ogdenville, and North Haverbrook, and by gum… he knows accents from all of those communties.

    I think the object in Panel 3 is either Rupert’s chair, or one of the alien robots.

    Could be a nail gun, just to let Ransom… er, Rupe, that he means business.
    It is disappointing that we learn all of a sudden that Gil has done some “checking” and turned up unsavory details about Rupe — all off-screen, as it were. As a reader I feel cheated if I’m being kept in the dark like that.

    How in the world did Gil do a background check on this guy? And what difference does his real name make anyway, if the whole point is the bootleg DVDs. If it was so horrible why did he sit on the info for weeks?

    Gil did some checking? Or was that Paul Drake? He should send the same cat to look for his kids who have to be on a missing milk carton somewhere.

    This is just Gil’s way of getting a “Dirty Girl” DVD for free.

    Kitten’s waiting for Gil to push his index finger through Rupert’s throat, then she’ll stab him with the ink gun she’s clenching in her right hand.
