Big Nate by Lincoln Peirce for August 20, 2001
"If you're meeting Kelly here at the mall, why do you want me along?" "Just a precaution, Teddy. In case it doesn't go well." "Doesn't go well? The two of you are together every day!" "That's at soccer camp! This is the real world! What if she acts weird? What if she looks weird?" "That's why I want you here! So don't leave until-" "Hi Nate." SHOVE "Beat it."
