    Damn, Rat! For once, I admire your blunt honesty.

    Rat may have exhausted his “honesty” quota until the next election cycle.

    Hmm. I can usually fake it through two or three meetings, myself.

    Rat, an hour? I’m surprised he can manage it that long.

    Why would that concern Rat? We’ve never seen him crying!

    He feels his obnoxious coming on; he’s afraid she will (justifiably) punch him in the nose causing him to cry like a baby rat.

    I wouldn’t have expected this level of self-awareness in Rat. To be honest: Of most people known to me to whom that insight would apply only very few might have that level.

    I’m that way after an hour at block parties or “social” cocktail hour, except I just get bored.

    Pig sits on pillows when he watches TV because he & Rat sold all their furniture to buy the largest TV possible!

    I have to admire Rat for this one. He MIGHT have just shown empathy – rare for a sociopath.

    I note that he said somebody leaves in tears without being specific. Maybe it’s him.

    ‘How come’ is not a word. The word is ‘Why’. Get it right, Pastis. Thanks. Grammar police Comic Division.

    Despite being somewhat of an introvert, I usually manage to find someone to talk to when I get dragged out of the house. And though they may eventually sneak away, it’s usually because I bored them to a frazzle rather than hurting their feelings. Usually.

    Oh, no!

    Is Rat mellowing? Developing a conscience?

    Harden up again, Rat. We don’t need another “softie” character!
