He’s gonna be disappointed when he learns they don’t have flying cars or jetpacks in the 2020s.
Well, that WOULD be him on a normal day.
1. Panel 4: Of course depending on how accurate stereotypes were, if this was say the 50s Ethan might say There’s girls who aren’t strange?.
I don’t know. Speaking as one born in 82 I never really thought differently about girls.
2. Half expecting Ethan to realize in the Present that Phoebe is that girl who made comments about a not born daughter or being from the Future.
Just that given how the family has lived for “a year”* he’ll just be mildly surprised.
*Year or decades, however, you choose to interpret the meta time:-D.
shocking, isn’t it, young Ethan?
Phoebe! Don’t say stuff like that. You’ll give yourself away!
Gameboy was released i April 1989.
Just tell him what stocks to buy and get it over with.
At this rate she’s going to end up being named Gwendolyn.
you are defiantly not still incredibly suss. Im waiting for her to mess up and name drop some future knowledge on him. Like accidently quote a 2000s movie or talk about games in 2020 or use some kind of 2010s lingo or ramble on about 2010s cartoons.
He must have done something right to have a fine daughter like you Phoebe!
I’m not a time traveler so in my next sentence I’m going to say that I’m definitely not a time traveler. That won’t be suspicious at all
It’s like one of those games, where you’re explicitly told not to think or say about a particular subject, and find you suddenly can’t do anything but think and say about that particular subject.
She’s going to mess up somehow.
It’s common courtesy to let people know if you are a time traveler.
My morning actually resembled this, except i was playing 3DS
I’m not much of a sophocles fan, tho…
and also, i never talk to actual Phoebes. only those birds that say “talk to Phoebe”
Isn’t it about time for Emily to make her appearance? I mean what better place for them to meet for the first time then at summer camp.
At least now we know where she gets it from.
“Okay, I’m NOT from the future, so *”DON’T"* buy stock in Google or Netflix, Disney or Marvel or anything like that. Wink-Wink, Say no more."
I must have missed something because I thought she was only going 4 hours into the past.
