Panel 1: Well, I guess "private chats" between an adult and a minor are okay when the adult is no longer the minor's teacher. Lucky for Liz that the natives are too noble to get hung up on white-man concepts like inappropriate contact.

Panel 2: He knew it was her grandpa's harmonica? Did she ever play it for the kids? Or did she just show it to Jesse when he was stalking her over at her house? In any event, I'd like to be sympathetic, really I would, especially since I did the same thing once when I was a little younger than Jesse (not a harmonica; a book). But although I was forgiven, I was also told in no uncertain terms that stealing is wrong, and furthermore, I had betrayed that person's trust. I don't anticipate that Liz will bring up either of those concepts.

Panel 3: Oh please. Does Liz remember that the harmonica was a gift from April? http://www.fborfw.com/strip_fix/archives/000605.php Probably not. Of course, Liz is free to do as she likes with it, but since when does she owe it to Jesse? Was she supposed to anticipate that he would want it? I mean, was it something that she knew he coveted (like my cousin knew I coveted the book)? Or is she just responding out of guilt and her mind-boggling susceptibility to manipulation? At any rate, it doesn't seem to mean much to Liz that April gave it to her out of love. It wasn't Jim's when Liz acquired it; it was APRIL'S. And she doesn't even get mentioned!

Panel 4: I'd like to say I'm touched, but I bet Jesse will soon become more interested in playing with that basketball in the background. And he probably won't remember Liz for long. Oh, who am I kidding. In another six years, he'll be traveling south to declare himself to her.

Panel 5: That's not a gift, you idiot. It's a message that you skipped out on your commitment. And what did you teach him, anyway, when he was even in school?
