"We felt like lost pieces, and they kept us in another puzzle box. Being wrong pieces, we cannot always fit in. It is important to realize that this is not our puzzle. Trying to force the piece to fit is a ridiculous effort, unnecessary, tiring. We should create our own puzzle from what we actually have: just one piece... Make it fit our own puzzle, piece by piece, just as the primitive original cell continued dividing until it created an entirely new organism... Invest in the process. Why try to fit in a place which is not ours? We'll only succeed provided we comply with who we are." --Max Steiner

    I can think of a few others; Kara has made some of the most priceless facial expressions throughout the strip.

    Hah! I didn’t think of ABBA. But now that you’ve mentioned it, Mrs. Foris and Wiggins-Ross could almost be Agnetha and Anni-Frid.

    I’ve long referred to it as the Hubrisphere.

    Kirbee has amply demonstrated the truth of that principle. Certainly she possesses a quality that ‘smart’ people sometimes lack: resourcefulness.

    Yes, eyes becoming small and blank is rarely, if ever, a good sign. And if the pupils vanish altogether — CLEAR OUT! If you can.

    If the topsiders eventually descended upon Endtown, they might find that there was little if anything left to destroy, if the current proceedings continue unchecked:

    I think most would be happy to see Doc proven wrong, including Doc.
