Yes, thank you for explaining to us how fiction works.
Today’s sudden transition seems to confirm that the last few weeks were another throwaway arc where nothing really changed and no characters actually experienced development. Or does someone here think Bernice is gonna change her major to pre-law?
Oh wait no, we got to see Margo Phelps again! Except we already got to see her as Tiffany’s therapist, and it already covered the story beat of “no matter what form of counseling she’s doing, she’s kinda bad at it.” Feels like the only thing the arc accomplished was to tell us what Mr Fogarty has been doing since retirement. But other than his creator gREg, did anyone actually care in the first place? He was never a particularly well-rounded character, after all.
Still, at least we get to see Tiffany again today. Hopefully she doesn’t get dumped all over. And now we have Epic Mustache Dude.
This comment makes me wish there was a downvote button.
Not people her age, that’s for sure.
Yeah, it just shows how our-of-touch the Evanses have become. Luann is to modern teens/young adults what Beetle Bailey is to the US Army.
We know who’s responsible because their name keeps popping up: someone called “gREg.”
They warned them while they started walking on the floor, not before. That’s why those little “wet floor” signs were invented, to prevent situations like this. And they also ran away when someone got hurt, which is the exact wrong thing to do and is a pretty big indicator that they screwed up. After all, as the saying goes: innocent men don’t run.
So Luann puts on her makeup like it’s her first time, and is talking about going to the mall. Is this strip a repeat from 2002 or something?
Not sure her predilection for snide insults will go over too well with a judge though. Part of lawyering is knowing the right thing to say at the right time, and only saying those things that help you. Bernice hasn’t learned that skill.
Haha, that’s adorable that you think Bernice will learn anything from this. She’ll just forget today’s events and continue on the same way she always has. 37 years with zero lasting character development, and you think that’s suddenly gonna change today just because Luann landed a zinger on her?
