Cash wasn’t a problem when Gunther and Rosa flew to Lima before, and they stayed for weeks in a first-rate hotel. (Cash is never a problem in the Evansverse, if financial realism would get in the way of the story, such as Franks’ financing of the Fuse purchase and renovation.) Since Mr. Gray is going to have to shell out a bundle to build the guest house for two people, it would be to his advantage instead just to pay Les’ rent in a small apartment and to buy Gunther a ticket to Peru. Everyone at the clinic in Lima loved having him doing whatever he did there, and they would be overjoyed to hire him back. Again, visa requirements do not apply in the Evansverse, if Greg doesn’t want them to.
Lottie is demanding some R-E-S-P-E-C-T!
Is Gunther’s stubble starting to fade away? Is the idea to make him clean-shaven in time for Mom’s wedding?
Les and Gunther don’t want to live with each other, so Les needs to find other arrangements. So does Quill, who currently is Gunther’s roommate in the Berger home. Piro lives in his car. I was thinking that the 3 of them should share a space and let Gunther live in the Gray/Berger guest house alone.
Gunther can live in the guest house to be close to Mom. Les, Quill, and Piro will all need a place to live, so maybe they can share an apartment. OK, none of them can afford to pay rent, so they can all share a cardboard box behind the Fuse.
How did they get Cobra out of jail?
The hurricane comment is of course beyond stupid, but I’m inclined to give Marty a break on the “Georgie Padilla” reference. In the USA even foreign-language names are usually given American-dialect pronunciations (e.g., newscasters refer to “Vladimir Putin” rather than “vlahd-EE-meer POO-tine”), and if Jorge does in fact speak with a Southern accent, as we have been told, then he may actually introduce himself as George Padilla (rhyming it with vanilla). In any case, he’s certainly accustomed to being called that when he was growing up in Georgia, and I seriously doubt he is offended by it. The “Georgie” rather than “George” is a bit bothersome, but high school sportscasters commonly take the liberty of using familiar forms of all the athletes’ names. (What’s Marty Moon’s real name? I forget.)
Sarah brings little sister Lottie (10-year-old version) along with her when they visit Esther de Groot and her two roommates at university in this month’s issue (#35) of the “Giant Days” comic book, which hit the stores on Wednesday. Lottie certainly makes her presence felt by the roommates, as is her wont.
