Panel 1: Christ almighty. I was hoping he was kidding, or that Mike would tell him that that ship had sailed, and what he really should do, if anything in the way of celebrating, was take a weekend away with his WIFE. But he's serious. And gee, I wonder what "everybody" is going to be there?
To be fair, it's not as if I don't know anyone who has big parties nowadays. I do, of course. But generally, they're in the nature of "We've planned for this, and hired a caterer, and a bartender, and we figured out where everyone's gonna park, and all the little details that make it go smoothly and keep it from getting out of hand." This sounds like it's going to be a thrown-together, last-minute rave. I hope Weed at least takes measures to keep his equipment from getting trashed.
Panel 2: NO. Not B.Y.O.B. That's supremely tacky at Weed and Mike's age. Especially when you're supposedly celebrating coming into money. And I forgot to say, hire a D.J. Not "crank up some tunes." These people have not matured.
Panel 3: I'm not sure what Weed's been through, but I'll say again, WHAT ABOUT DEANNA?! Does she get to unwind?
Panel 4: Yes, it has been tense, Mike, suppressing your desire. And I can't wait to hear what the "best part" is.
Panel 5: Whatever. I'm more interested in Deanna's future. With miles of road between her and Mike.
