Hobbes just wants to know if he’s going to be the navigator on this trip.
Spiff can always find another planet – but he better be careful where he lands.
Try going to Neptune.
“It’s not the destination, it’s the journey.”
Stop the world, I want to get off.
Remember what happened when they left for the Yukon?
We all must try to become better and to protect our planet, we have no other one!!
To become better, is our only chance!!
And thus begins the “Weirdos from Another Planet” arc!
Sometimes I could swear Hobbes is Jewish.
He ‘aint heavy, he’s my brother
Move to trump world where coal is the clean energy choice.
You can always be off to see the Wizard, the wonderful Wizard of Oz! That’s be somewhere over the rainbow, Hobbes.
Overlooked just that one “small” detail, Calvin!
I am afraid that you don’t have a choice about inheriting the Earth, Calvin, unless Ford Prefect says otherwise.
Rich people have giant air filters installed wherever they reside.
What – Spaceman Spiff’s vehicle is in the shop?
Sheesh, it’s all about the details with Hobbes.
The Roar of the Greasepaint the Smell of the Crowd
A rather painful parallel to leaving a city or state. When “anywhere but here” is the goal, where does one go?
Where else is there to go? Under the blanket and hold your breath.
Just say don’t ask.
Do I foresee a trip to Mars in the very near future?
Hobbes asks a simple question, Calvin is embarrassed to realize he doesn’t have an answer, and then he angrily insults Hobbes for it? Who’s the “load” here?
A sign I saw in Germany 28 years ago: “Wir müssen die Erde geschützen. Es ist unser einziges Heim.” (“We have to protect the Earth. It’s our only home.”)
OK. That is the perfect face on Calvin in panel 3. Made me laugh.
“Space,” it says, “is big. Really big. You just won’t believe how vastly, hugely, mindbogglingly big it is. I mean, you may think it’s a long way down the road to the chemist’s, but that’s just peanuts to space.”
It’s kinda hard to get to where you want to go until you figure out where that is.
