    You, I would imagine, Phil.

    She’s afraid that she will lose you again, Phil… she sort of lost you, once…. she wants the feeling she feels now, to always linger…..

    The wonderful feeling she gets being with Phil, that is…
    She’d probably wish that time would stand still, in every moment she spends by his side…

    And perhaps she also is hurt, losing family along the way….

    And so she’ll drive him away.

    Phil for heaven sake—step up and propose. Guy PLEASE let it happen.

    I am all for taking it easy – and slow. When they get down to Fritzi trying on wedding dresses – she should model wedding dresses for at least a couple of months – and – perhaps – try on some of the wedding dresses which she used to dream about back in the 40s and 50s. I remember one series of strips where Phil was supposed to meet Fritzi at the church because their church group was going to put on a play. When Phil arrived at the church – he spotted Fritzi – dressed in a wedding dress – standing next to a guy who was dressed as a groom. When Phil rushed forward to stop Fritzi from going through with the wedding – Fritzi explained that the wedding dress was just part of the play which their church group had been rehearsing. There were other story lines abut Fritzi and Phil separately dreaming about the possibility of being married to each other – including Fritzi modeling the wedding dresses – but, when push came to shove – they both got cold feet and neither one of them mentioned anything about the wishful thinking which they had been doing. I remember one strip where Fritzi dreamed about Phil being a dashing prince, who knelt down on one knee and promised to “lay the world at her feet.” So, Fritzi woke up just as Phil arrived and, when Phil arrived – he stumbled on a rug and knocked over a nearby world globe. The glob rolled over at Fritzi’s feet and Phil WAS kneeling on the rug as he got up – but Fritzi didn’t say anything about the dream which she had just had. Fritzi and Phil were ALWAYS romantic duo. It is much more fun to savor the romance and let it percolate along until it is just right!

    I sure hope so—but I’d hate to be the one to clean that microwave!

    I think those who dismiss this story arc as a “soap opera” are missing a bigger point. What you are seeing is the assembling of a family using “old-school” values in modern times. Recall the series where Fritzi was discussing with Phil what she as looking for in a guy, and nearly BURNED DOWN that “fourth wall” with her glare as she said, “Someone who doesn’t see an eight-year old as baggage, for starters.” Originally, Fritzi Ritz was a flapper looking for a rich guy; now she gives thanks to God for the blessing of her little niece. Phil’s return, meanwhile, doesn’t present him as the bumbling fellow with the roving eye that he once was; look at his new job and his budding relationship with Sluggo. Mr. Gilchrist is rehabilitating the characters to present an ideal not seen in modern comics anymore. (Greg Evans is doing somewhat the same thing over at Luann with the saga of Brad and Toni and her niece Shannon.) I know some guys will continue to drool over “Fritzi Ritz 2.0” (or, depending on your view, “10.0”), but I am most curious to watch this continue to develop. Its been well-planned, well-drawn, and I say “Well done, Guy Gilchrist!”

    This is becoming a boring strip. Not funny anymore.

    I have to agree way to much drama for funny papers.

    Guy, you are doing just fine! Keep up the Fritzi and Phil dialogue as it is more down to earth!

    I disagree! It’s nice to mix up the stories and see the adults from time to time! I love “Nancy” but I’ve been reading her for 50 years – there’s some space for the other characters. They’re all wonderful!
