Okay, so what's the deal here? He CAN'T be calling from the bedroom; not in the FOOBiverse. Has he taken to driving 60 km or whatever the distance is to drop in unannounced, and Liz is used to it? Or is he in Mtig on a weeklong visit, staying chastely at a relative's house? ??????
Panel 2: Oh, so he's running errands for her! And he seems to be slightly more skilled at carrying boxes than she is. And I can just hear the Yahoo! group swooning over how tall and handsome he looks. Shiimsa is cute, looking up at him curiously.
Panel 3: Hmmmmmmmmmm. Wonder WHY she hasn't had time???
Panel 4: What a poorly drawn mouth on Liz. And why don't we see more of Paul's face? Still, Mike could take a lesson from this: Make time for the people you care about. Anyway, diamond ring in 5...4...3...
