He Wants to Do a “Stop and Chat”

“Oh, $#!†.”
“This guy, Marty Moon. He’s spotted me. Now he’s gonna want to do a ‘stop-and-chat.’ Don’t – don’t, don’t go, don’t go!”
“Oh my God, I got to, uh…”
“Oh, what a §∩¢ӂ.”
“I got a trophy to polish. Have a blast.”

All those shiny floors all over Milford High. Steve Luhm’s on top of his game.

Marty got Maxwell’s (I guess no one’s gonna call him “Max,” are they? To avoid confusion with Max Ortiz?) stats down cold. You reckon Bobby Howry slipped them to him? A lot of faithful TWIM readers think that’s an eventuality. Maxwell blithely ignores Gil’s advice and gives Marty something to exploit. Tune in tomorrow to see how far Maxwell can stick his foot in his mouth.



  1. I’m not thinking Steve’s shiny floors; in P3, Maxwell and Moon are perched over an endless abyss. Maxwell buddy, do us all a favor and give the Mooneroo a gentle nudge over the edge.

    Either that, or the yawning void is a visual device for Maxwell’s naiveté. Why Gil would let him alone with Moon is beyond me…

  2. Maxwell seems to think that an interview with Marty Moon is a properly-annunciate-BTO-song-title session. Tomorrow he tells Moon about how he’s “Taking Care Of Business” and implores him to “Give Me Your Money Please”.

  3. Maxwell is number one. All others are number two or lower.

  4. Oh, no…

    Humans have a way of seeing patterns where there are none, but tell me, is there a pattern here of high school boys making asses of themselves? Doyle Dane, Knox Foley, Jarrod Hale– at least early on– and now this poor idiot?

  5. I know, right, vaganova? Throw Bobby Howry (and, to some extent, Conrad Luckey Haskins) into the mix and it just seems to repeat. I guess it beats boys thinking peacocks are the reincarnation of their little brothers or placekickers on the autism spectrum emulating Nate Kaeding. True Standish is coming off as the most grounded, level-headed high school athlete in Milford in some time, his attraction to old architecture notwithstanding.

  6. I fear Marty Moon is going to bring the Silver Hammer down on Maxwell. Whatever he does, Maxwell won’t look Smart.

  7. If Milford High had a low-power radio station, would the English teacher be the faculty advisor, and would s/he make the station play bowdlerized versions of classic rock songs?

  8. John S, I am usually at least average on the uptake, but this one I am going to have to think about. And teenchy, your litany of annoying characters from the recent past may explain why we all sided with True Standish so immediately, the lack of self-promotion. Now we’re facing a potential instant blowhard in Maxwell Bacon, who is triggering a Marty-Moon-is-Satan plot right before our eyes, on top of the pathological towel boy who thinks he’s John Wooden.

  9. Maxwell might be working for a spot on the Pantheon of douchebags.

  10. […] number 32 on his dark jersey.  Next panel Maxwell Bacon (who’s already been established as wearing number 1) is wearing a white uniform and is being guarded by a player in dark with seven little blobs over […]
