    I know it’s not easy to feel ‘comfy’ in a place where someone’s face is looking at you from all the frames on the wall, but Gunther’s back is way too,um, upright. (Compared to Jeremy in Zits, who always looks like he has no spine at all and just fills every space between his parent’s couch and the fridge, anyway.)-Try to relax, Gunther. Who knows? Maybe TIff isn’t thinking about what you’re worried about? Maybe she really does just want to work on the homework?

    Poor Gunther – Hard to say if he worries more about something not happening – or something happening. I can visualize Tiff in a loose robe – sitting down close to Gunther – suddenly her legs start hurting….

    Well, Tiffany has certainly marked her territory- and by “territory”, I mean her dorm suite… – Time must be a very good student- because Time is surely passing…. But is it quickly, or is this one of those awkward “what to do?” moments? – What if…by some random coincidence, Bernice were to drop by- oh, say, for instance, to…borrow something…or to ask some favor…

    I notice in panel 1, Gunther’s face is mostly similar to the third panel, with his “eyebrows of discovery” going up, and no sweat on his forehead, nor any “visible shaking”, which are Gunther’s usual “signs of nervousness” (and similar to Saturday’s “Gunther expression” in the last panel)…he’s probably just one DefCon away from the “big red button” (which, of course, is at DefCon 1, his usual normal level)…

    My favorites are:-B. Pretty funny! (Tiffany never realized an Andy Warhol mural would be a great way to display this art. If only Luann weren’t so prejudiced and grudge-obsessed, she could tell her. Hmmm, prejudiced and grudge-obsessed describes the Tiffany bashers, too. They will have fun mocking this room.)-C. Funny! Gunther watched a llama pee on one of the tourista’s paper cuts and cure it. But this skill would have been handy info, too.-E. Yeah,those sneakers are too white to be true.-F. Funny, and part of the ecchh of Gunther’s story. Personally, I’d welcome Luann and Quill instead of this. Hey, don’t hate the hater, players—-hate the game!

    Since Tiff would have been paid to pose for the paper inside the frame, I would imagine the amount of frames sold to be completely irrelevant. Modelling for the frame would still be a great thing to have on her resume, or whatever it is.

    Yes, her father could have sprung for an apartment but I thought it was canon that she lived in the same dorm as Bernice.

    My dorm room consisted of a large shared desk, two single beds, two chairs, two closets and a dorm mate. Couldn’t fit an extra chair in there if we had wanted to.

    Is that supposed to be Tiffany’s dress lying there in front of tense neo(?)-Gunther? I guess not, since that would mean she undressed in front of him! No wonder the boy would be uptight! Curious, though, that the heart-decorated yellow cloth item so resembles her sundress….Oh, well. Let’s just see what transpires when she gets out of the shower.

    A lot of people want Gunther to get together with Tiffany, but that’s just shallow. Opposites attract initially, but don’t stay togehter without compromise. Tiffany can’t compromise and Gunther just wants a partner. They can’t even have a conversation unless it’s all about her. It’s just a matter of everybody thinking that a kind of homely nerd boy somehow “deserves the hot girl.” That’s just superficial.

    Perhaps, it is. But one would think if it’s the case you describe, he could do that more overtly such that the symbolism is perfectly clear to all. I believe Greg, knowing that he can’t reference something “risqué” like our scenario so overtly, has to do it quite “covertly.” Hence the pillow innuendo. Admittedly, the purple pillow does look a little more like a heart than a derriere, but that could be part of the “obfuscation.”

    Gunther is twiddling his thumbs and looks bored, maybe a bit puzzled by the room décor but certainly not nervous and apprehensive. Old Gunther might be sweating and fearful. New Gunther seems to know his mission (here) and likely it has nothing to do w/ Tiffany other than writing up the assignment.

    Because it’s a logical question for a girl to ask a guy when he seems unable to form a relationship with a girl. An inability to form a relationship isn’t just a result of being uncomfortable around someone; it also grows from not relating to that person, or not feeling what you’ve been told you’re supposed to feel and worrying about it.
