Also, there’s the familiar Jaimes deployment of Nancy undercutting her own good ideas.
In panel four, she distinguishes between thoughtful advice versus demand for change. Here, Nancy is giving “thoughtful advice” as she has described.
In panel five, Agnes paraphrases Nancy’s comment and seems ready to embrace it as the good thinking it is. She hears that she should respond to others’ “demand for change” by offering back to them “thoughtful advice.”
In panel six, Nancy has forgotten the distinction she herself has just identified and suggests instead that Agnes should just demand of the others that they change. Also, Nancy is just a hair’s breadth away from demanding of Agnes that she do just that.
Feel free to tell me I’m overthinking.
Or that if you have to explain it you suck all the funny out of it.
Either of which I could regard as thoughtful advice or a demand for change.
