Bets is JEALOUS!!
Stop the analysis and Apologize to Bets for not averting your eyes.
Gun saw it ALL! And apparent in minute detail. But Gun, you are in a hole right now. So stop digging yourself in deeper!
Look at that last panel, the fangs have come out !
Misunderstanding! Jealousy! Funny! Woo!
Give it a rest Bets, let him have a thrill, it’s not his fault!
Gunther likes to reads the thesaurus?
Leaping and bounding! Like a reindeer? Gosh! I’d of like to seen that! Whew.
Gunther is not painting a minimalist picture here. I’m glad it wasn’t Nil that Dez brought back. 8^ )
Oh, poor Gunther! Still reeling with the shock of seeing a naked woman and not having any words to explain, so he’s using every word he can to try to divert his embarrassment!
She’s trying to make it his fault somehow
Gunther, do you really want to waste any more time with someone who has so little trust in you?
Unwarranted jealousy is very unattractive.
Hilarity totally ensues
Whoa. Gunther, you could have told it better. Simplify, such as “It looked like Tiff forgot her towel so she had to walk back to her room naked. Bad timing that Dez opened the door while she was walking back to her room.” Just let her that it was not a deliberate act. Now you’ve gotten her suspicious and jealous.
She can’t blame him for that. It was a literal accident
Will Tiffany Farrell go back to the Mansion?
No sé, pero esto se está tornando divertido. Gunther muy serio detallando el momento en que vió desnuda a Tiffany, sin importarle lo celosa que se está poniendo Bets.
A bit off the topic of the Bets – Gunther war:
Today is the day to honor and remember the 2,403 service members and civilians who were killed during the attack on Pearl Harbor on December 7, 1941. A further 1,178 people were injured in the attack, which permanently sank two U.S. Navy battleships (the USS Arizona and the USS Utah) and destroyed 188 aircraft. They and their families will always be remembered…
Had a jealous ex-wife who, after dreaming of me and someone else, woke up and hit me! True story!
Gunther probably should have started by saying Dez met him in the hallway and opened the door. And there was Tiffany. Blame Dez for opening the door; don’t try to characterized how Tiff was moving.
I still think Gunther is moderately autistic. He obviously should have replied that Tiffany didn’t prance across the room for Gunther – Tiffany didn’t know anybody was coming in. Instead, Gunther searches for the right word to describe Tiffany’s stride. I know it’s a comic and this is supposed to be funny – but that sounded like autism to me.
Going with Bets here Gunther, Tiffany got caught in an embarrassing moment. Your reaction is depressingly oh I saw a naked women and that means something. Grow up already Gunther, people do not have clothes when born, and at many points after. Is Bets your love or not, decide. If Tiffany running across a room naked is your last thought other than Bets, neither of you deserve the other.
I actually think Gunther’s lines are funny.
Bets, on the other hand, is showing this is not a good match. Is she going banshee on Tiff next?
Gunther should just tell Bets that he was being a nice guy and offered to towel Tiff off, then she accepted, and he meticulously dried off every square inch of her voluptuous body. Once Bets cools off and comes down off the ceiling, a new baseline will be established, and anything Gunther does after that point will pale in comparison.
Oh, yeah – and everyone lives happily ever after.
I was holding out hopes for Gunny & Betts but after this outburst I no longer care. Spare me the drama. Break up already.
Well, obviously, Bets the thing to do is to let Gunther see YOU naked!
He saw her, but is still here waiting and caring for you.
“No, I wasn’t naked when I saw her.”
Hey Bets, instead of getting angry and jealous, why not just shut gunther up by lifting your shirt or your skirt and asking him: “so since you saw EVERYTHING, who’s is better…hers or mine?”
Just a thought.
I think the boom is about to be lowered on poor Gunth!!!
Gotta love a man who values finding the right word!
The green monster isn’t a good look anyone. Does Bets really believe that Tiffany would flaunt naked in front of Gunther after all the trouble she went through to get them back together? Grow up, Bets.
Bets, if you don’t know Gunther by now you’ll never know for him. Gunther is a kind and considerate person. Sorry for lyrical reference.
Wait until he gets to the part about there was bouncing, other than her steps.
I know Bets has her insecurities, but let’s be honest: Gunther is NOT helping the situation here.
Gunther has been reading too much 9 Chickweed Lane. The Thesaurus is not his friend.
Gunther-don’t walk away. Run. Run as fast and as far as you can. You’ve heard of abusive relationships? You’re in one. Leave now before you get so invested in things that you have to hit rock bottom before you decide to go.
Wait til Gunth blurts out “well it wasn’t like it was my first time. She’s put on weight since then…”
You know, wouldn’t be strange if Tiffany and Gunther got together? Whoever thought Brad and Toni would be an item…
We might finally get our break up arc. But also, Gunther didn’t present the situation well. The more nervous he gets and the more Bets thinks he was into seeing Tiffany naked, not so much as any naked woman. Bets and Tiffany have been at odds before recently. Bets is going to have to accept the living situation she accepted: Tiffany, the hot, old friend; The Nudist; Stephanie, the hot cheerleader breeding like a rabbit. Naked was bound to happen sooner than later. All this in a dorm. Bets might want to get her own place.
What a precise analysis of the movements, Gunther sure has fixed the image in his mind forever! Bets begin her jealously attack and seems it will be a big one. How long before she will start yelling at Tiffany? This could be both the end of their friendship or the big explanation that will made everyone laugh and make their friendship stronger. Unfortunately, the first possibility is more probable.
You’re at a stoplight and an attractive young woman crosses in front of the car. – Bets is going to get jealous.
You’re at the beach, and an attractive young woman walks by wearing a bikini. – Bets is going to get jealous.
You’re at a Comics-Con, and you stop by Budd Root’s table and look at the cover of “Cavewoman: The Hunt #1. – Bets is going to get jealous.
You get a phone call from ANY of your “lady friends” and Bets is going to get jealous.
Are you beginning to get the picture? And the longer you hang with Bets, the WORSE it’s going to get.
What you don’t know, is that Bets stood with Tiffany and Dez and WATCHED a guy get dressed, for God’s Sake. That’s apparently okay. But she has the unmitigated gall to accuse You of accidentally seeing Tiffany naked??
Run away, Gunther.
And if you can’t run, FLY.
PS: You’ve been to enough Cosplay events to know that there are other gals out there besides Bets with a love of cosplay.
And MOST of them aren’t NUTS.
Hopefully, they will not get their overbites accidentally locked together during this Tiff, I mean, argument….
Legend has it that a guy left the showers and was walking down the halls carrying a towel when the RA’s wife stepped out of their apartment. The kid freaked, then covered his head with the towel as he fled.
I don’t get this. Dez was right there a second ago. She’s the one who opened the door, then both Dez and Gunther saw Tiffany naked, running across the room. Where is Dez?? Did she just disappear??
Things you should never tell your girlfriend…….
We’ve seen the obsessive, attention-hungry side of Bets’ personality, now here’s another fun side: Jealousy and paranoia.
It was an accident but it’s clear that Bets is somehow going to make it out to be Gunther’s fault and that he did it on purpose.
Gunther! Shut up!
Told ya. Now someone throw a punch.
SHE DIDN’T HAVE A TOWEL DUMMY!!
I still think Gunth and Tiff are destined to be together
Gunthers’ stupidity is showing. Why mention the incident at all?
Gunther, you dodged a bullet when you and Bets spilt, don’t tempt fate and don’t jump back into the line of fire again.
Take the win.
Well, like I said yesterday, she’s going to blow this accident all out of proportion. By Saturday, she’ll be telling him what to think and what to say, again.
Boy, I do need a thesaurus here…
Perhaps she’s not familiar with what’s available on the internet?
Bets: Be thee chill!
Can we just get Tiffany out of the apartment and back to her house please? This story line is getting real old, real fast!
Poor Gunther is gobsmacked. That’s an image that will forever be etched in his hippocampus.
We warned you awhile back Gunther…
The gauntlet’s been thrown… your turn now, Bets!
If you have Filmon.tv stop by Naked Attraction.
You perv! Stop talking about Tiffany like that! Keep it up and you’ll get cancelled!
I don’t like Bets.
If you simply explain that you came back to the room with Dez, you could forgo this torture.
Bets get a grip. This whole crowd needs to spend some time at the nude beach.
“You saw Tiff naked?”“Yeah, I walked in and she was running for a towel. Totally an accident.”“Oh, okay”-normal conversation in a dorm, right?
Gunther’s such a jerk. He stood there and stared while Dez stormed in on Tiffany at an embarrassing moment, and rather than admit that he was rude, he turns this into a fight between Bets and Tiffany (the real victim here).
When is he going to realize that she’s a toxic girlfriend?
Thought Betts would ask if the collars and cuff matched. LOL
Gunther, SHUT UP !!
The engineer in Gunth is coming out as he’s over thinking this. Time for the KISS application.
I’m on Team Bets, but I can’t defend this.
Having once found myself startlingly and briefly, but fully and frontally, nude before someone who is not my spouse but is my preferred gender, I can attest that the moment is memorable but survivable. just looking at it for a moment from Tiffany’s point of view.
Bye bye Bets!
nebihours dogs got out while she in the shower she grabbed a towel and cashed after them . I was wondering what all the ruckus was and dog yapping, NO tan lines . Nice
Here we go again…… Gunther’s explanation is kind of fun; Bets’ reaction, not so much.
Oh for crying out loud!!! Why is Bets immediately assuming that Tiff did this on purpose???? Get therapy Bets!
Said it before…Bets is an unlikeable character.
Gunner tell her to get lost
Bets is jealous. Well, what an astonishing surprise—-not!
And yesterday’s “You were alone with her?” What is she, Pence’s mother?
She’s a hot mess. Run, ole Gunner! Run!
Gunther The Player. Between him and Bern The Hussy, there are two who think outside of the box (albeit reluctantly).
This kind of thing happens in a dorm or any situation where a lot of people cohabitate. If you can’t handle the possibility of someone seeing you without clothes by accident, you shouldn’t live in the dorm. If you can’t handle seeing someone naked by accident, you shouldn’t live at or go into a dorm.
If Gunther wasn’t being such a nebbish about it and explained what happened with Dez and Tiff without being so flustered, there wouldn’t even be an issue. I thought dating Bets had upped his self confidence a bit.
Really can’t stand Bets
I was so hoping that Gunther had finally dumped Bets in their last fight so we could move on from her. She is an annoying character that just needs to go away.
Both are emotionally immature and in a “No knock up zone”, so do what you must, but don’t produce a third party to mess up the rest of your lives.
a) How long have these two been dating? If he hasn’t seen her naked yet, she’s got no cause to be upset.
b) This strip could use with some nudity.
I want to like Bets, but just I don’t.
And this is where you say, “And all I could think about was you”
Bets is such a beeotch!
He saw enough!
“Bets! BTFO!” (‘back off’)
So where does this arc go from here. GnK must have had some idea for a series of episodes and/or an overarching arc when they threw these four female characters into such close proximity. First Kip came into the mix, reconciled with Stefi and became a thorn in Tiff’s side. Now they’ve thrown Gunther into the milieu. Like Kip, he is currently in a relationship with one of the quad denizens, Bets. What now?
If they go with Gunther and Bets reconciling, then Bets will probably retain some jealous feelings toward Tiff. This will make Tiff’s dorm life even more upsetting. If Gunther and Bets pull a Stefi and Kip in Dez’ room, what a mess (no pun) that will be. Gunther and Bets may suffer another split over this obvious jealous outburst. There doesn’t seem to be many good outcomes in this direction. Tiff may hook up with Gunther, leave the dorm and move into the Gulag? Where does that leave Dez, Bets and Stefi Bird an story material. Tiff may reprise her matchmaker role and reconcile Gunther and Bets again? Where does that leave Tiff’s story?
Hard to see where this is going.
Betts must DISROBE IMMEDIATELY! Problem solved! Gunther will explode in a mass of hysterical protoplasm, and the problem will be resolved! NEXT!
He’s been replaying it in his mind.
It was more of a scuttle!
GUNTHER! GET A CLUE! STOP TALKING!You didn’t do anything wrong by walking in, but you are by talking about it.As for Bets, let’s see if she has grown. Initial reaction might be anger and jealousy, but she knows Tiffany and should know Gun well enough to trust him.
With her freshman 20 I’d have called it a voluptuous dash Gunther! :D
Okay, Bets’ comment here was out of line. But I don’t think anybody can say they wouldn’t be upset to hear their ‘significant other’ saw a person’s roommate ‘au naturel’. Even if it was by accident.
That said, Bets’ seems more upset with Gunther’s explanation skills (or lack thereof) than anything else. Although his clumsy way of telling her should reassure her that nothing happened.
Bets SO needs to go. I…don’t…like…her!
He needs another look to verify.
Oh lord. Now she has to make a whole thing out of this.
Very late in the day (by Luann standards, any way)…
I am very, very, very disappointed that G&K have decided to go in this direction.
There are days when I think G&K must intensely dislike their characters, if not downright hate them.
Many have said that about Luann. Some here (myself included) will tune away the weeks that Luann appears. Her story lines are Just. That. Bad.
Historically, Tiffany was the strip’s villain, though she was reformed, at least during the Ann Eiffel run. Now, she’s been pretty much relegated to her former role of dipstick blonde cheerleader with an overdose of poor-little-rich girl.
Gunther appears to be the guy that most readers just love to hate – even though, other than Brad and Toni, Gunther is the only one in this strip to be in an actual relationship with anybody – let alone his relationships with most of the legacy female characters of this strip.
And then there’s this week.
After Bets’ realization that Gunther is „the one“ and has envisioned having children with him.
And now, this.
Maybe Schrodinger’s Dog is right.
Time for us to move on.
He better sachay away
Bets is about as tiresome as they come.
Had enough of Bets. Send her the way of Quill!
Bets is probably right to be alarmed. She knows there’s something going on between Gunther and Tiffany that might ignite if they are alone together…especially now that he’s seen her (current) naked body. He could prove his devotion to Bets and end her jealousies, or….the image he witnessed will keep popping into his head and he will realize he is attracted to Tiffany. If they add Luann to the mix, It is quite possible Gunther will become the most eligible bachelor in town. Amazing.
“Ohhhh! We’ll draw you a comic that’s long and immense… Wayyyy-heyyyy! Slow the plot down. Just give us an arc that makes no friggin’ sense. We’ll try so hard, to slow the plot doooown!”
I just keep wondering what happens to Dez? She creeps in, does stuff that causes a bunch of drama and then disappears. It’s really annoying, but then, maybe all of this is counting as her payback for the door slam in the face.
If she really is going to make a big deal out of this, tell her to take a hike. It does not bode well for your future happiness
Definitely not intentional but if a guy doesn’t look at a pretty naked girl walking, sauntering or whatever walking by him, you don’t really want him as e boyfriend…..
How hard is it to say “she was sprinting or running across the room” LOL
I’m with Bets on this. Now is not the time for one of Gunther’s patented verbal word searches.
Gunther and Bernice should date each other. She would appreciate his search for just the right term to describe Tiffany’s movement while she was naked.
Hey girl, it’s not like you plan these moments.
Oh no! Gunther, how will you tee hee yourself out of this real life adult situation with your crazed girlfriend?
Wow, poor Gunther, reacting like a nerd. This is like watching “I love Lucy” or perhaps even more likely “Threes Company”. I know, this is the episode where there is some sort of mis understanding, right ??? ;-)
Bets cool it. No one could take your over-reactions.
I think you know what you have to do Bets…
Knute is crossing the Mooney Campus when he sees Gunther riding a bike. Knute asked where he got the bike. Gunther says this beautiful woman rode up to him, threw her bike to the ground, tore off all her clothes and said “Take what you like”. Knute says, good choice, the clothes never would have fit you.
Just in case you didn’t know…you are in trouble.
“What’s weird is that she isn’t really blonde, and you do that strange bleach job for that cosplay character.”
Soon coming to a theater near you. Tiffany and Gunther starring in An Accidental Shower Session . Rated R for Ridiculous.
get over it Bets!
These jealousy story-lines get old…
Have Bets and Gunther – you know????
Could it be that Gunther has an actual libido?
This is an issue (Bets’s jealousy) that I would have thought would have been confronted and dealt with much earlier in the storyline. I don’t know why it’s coming up (perhaps with a possible breakup) after going through all the trouble of having them get back together after Bets initially left.
Here we go again…..
Gunther! You talk too much
Please forget what I said yesterday… He should’ve kept this bottled up.
She was bare to me and revealed it all.
Aside from being cute, Bets, as a person, has very little going for her.
No, Gunther, don’t stop now!!
Your description is just beginning to get interesting!!
Doesn’t Bets know that Gunther is going to describe Tiffany’s running in as many ways as possible? Doesn’t she know by now, that’s how Gunther is?
Yep. I called it yesterday.
Definitely NOT a Sashay: “walk in an ostentatious yet casual manner, typically with exaggerated movements of the hips and shoulders.” If Tif had done that Gunther might have followed her.
bets is ……. oh wait , i don’t care. move on
If she doesn’t trust gunther by now, she’s hopeless.
I like Gunther’s word obsession. Tomorrow it will be dart, scoot, sprint, skedaddle. The only way Bets could distract Gunther now (from his mental image of a naked Tiff) would be to take her own clothes off now.
LOL, Bets is jealous today.
I wonder if Gun told Bets he’s already seen Tiff in nothing but a bathrobe before…
Gun is focused on definitions, not on her body. What are you worried about?
Ghunter, shut up, you’re not putting one, you’re putting both feet in your mouth.
Volcano alert! Mt. Bets is about to undergo a major eruption!
Gunther is figuratively doomed. Can his “romance” with Bets survive this Naked Tiffany Incident?
Perfect situation for him. Either she accepts it, as she should, or she goes on her tantrum and he is rid of this self centered imbecile.
I’m there will be a happy ending later.
This is the end, my only friend the end . . .
Bets is a lot dumb.
Jealousy is toxic, dump her Gunther.
Gunther did not seek out the nudity, the nudity was thrust upon him. So it isn’t his fault that he will never be able to unsee this. And this the part where instead of being made to feel like he did something wrong he should just say “They were real, and they were spectacular!” and leave it at that.
She should be glad he’s being so honest about it, really.
“…It was hard to concentrate to typify due to all the bouncing and jiggling.”
