Snarky Candiru2

Canadian Civic Holiday 2018

When Phil makes talky-talk about heading home to decide on buying the house, Nigel lights a fire under his ass by pointing out that he and Georgia ain't the only ones interested in the place.

(Strip Number 5171, Original Publication Date, 7 August 1989)

Panel 1: We see an exterior shot of the house as Georgia asks Phil what he thinks of the place. He says that he likes it.

Panel 2: Phil says that it needs a bit of work but is solid and in a nice neighbourhood before saying that they should go home and think about it.

Panel 3: Nigel says to take their time because it's a big decision. He's about to undercut himself on purpose so as to say "but not too much time."

Panel 4: When Nigel cheerfully informs the crowd that they've got another pair gonna make an offer but they won't be they until 9:00, we see a rare group gobsmack.

Summary: The next few days show us that Phil and Georgia react differently when faced with big decisions. Our boy Phil is overwhelmed by having to decide anything much and wants to put deadlines off while his blushing bride wants things done yesterday.
