    I take it he broke the window when he threw the frisbee in the third panel?

    “Do you have a replacement window?”

    I would say the best literal meaning is “Do you have any replacement windows ready to be installed?” Apparently he will sell him some if he doesn’t.

    My apologies. I didn’t see your answer before I posted.

    Bruno – you should have completed the comment: “Poncho is starting to be a real pane in the glass…”

    Not so funny? Maybe it’s more cerebral than lol-funny today, but think about the twist given to “A hole you created.” Very clever!

    “Are you all set for _____?” means “Do you have all the ______ you want/need?”

    So, for example, at a bar, after the customers have been served the waiter, upon returning to the table later, might ask, “Are you all set for drinks?” or “Are you folks all set?”

    Thus, here “How [are] you set for windows” means “Do you have all the windows you need?” (and obviously the answer is ‘no’!)

    Macus got it – capitalism – he breaks the guy’s window & profits off selling a replacement :)
