In today's strip, Candace points out that she and Rudy just click. This reminds our boy of something else that clicks: the Transformers!! He explains to Liz what that is, Candace gets mildly amused at being likened to a robot the size of a small building and repeats his "goofy monster" phrase back at him. Making a show of mistaking her good-natured ribbing for actually being offened, he tries to shove his other foot in his mouth. Liz looks on and gets a chuckle out of the display as she's never seen what people who actually do take things slow look like. I reiterate and rephrase: she thinks this is a show put on for her benefit instead of how normal people behave.

What flips me is that 'Cathy' did a joke about the Transformers back in the eighties when they first came out. I don't think Lynn heard of them till last year.

ETA: I begin to wonder if I'm off-base in my premise here. If you read this right, it almost looks as if Lynn is trying to show us that Randace's non-traditional relationship is about to lose its spark, so to speak. As howtheduck mentioned on his blog, they've gone from 'carefree' to 'bickering old married couple' since we've seen them last. This tells me that Lynn is showing us that cohabitation doesn't work, that Liz will be set for life once she ties the knot his August.
