Snarky Candiru2

Saturday, 6 October 2018

We end the arc (as well as Phil and Georgia's term as second-tier characters) with his not realizing that Georgia doesn't share his vision of "home as fucking rat's nest with useless crap all over the place."

Panel 1: Now that the argument has blown over and the Pattersons have gone home, we find ourselves watching Phil tell Georgia that they're in their very own home.

Panel 2: We get a reminder that people have had to drag Phil kicking and screaming to maturity all his damned life when he starts to the same sort of speech he did about the wedding about how he wasn't sure they were doing the right thing for a while but feels differently now that they have their things moved in.

Panel 3: As we zoom out to see belongings haphazardly strewn about as if Michael were their decorator, he gushes about how it feels like home. The realization that he thinks so because it looks the way his bachelor pad did before she de-crapped it astonishes Georgia when it really shouldn't.

Summary: The next time these two actually seem to matter is when they're involved in a pitched battle with some old fossil who has a series of yapping mongrels that he ties up all night to scare off the underclass who want to kill and rob him because the alarmist media says so and after that, Phil only matters when parents get sick or die. Monday, we start the "Elly gets in an accident saga" with a reminder that John would like being a dentist better if he didn't have to deal with the public.
