You Want Gil’s Attention? Hit Him In His Wallet.

It’s great how things rapidly drew to a head the second time Gil had to cover another $3.50 slice of banana cream pie. You can practically see him wince as the order goes in. Never mind all of that hypothetical checking in with counselors or social workers, Gil is just going to cut to the chase and straight up talk Tina out of her opioid addiction.

Bonus point:

Hey, it’s Steve Boone! Nice to see him picking up a paycheck during the football off-season.




  1. I see Gil is drivin’ the sporty new Tonka Crossover.

  2. Is that you, timbuys? For the past two days I have been following GT only through TWIM, since I am at ground zero of the northeastern storm you may have read about. The single day maximum of 42″ of snow was recorded half a mile from my house, in fact. Naturally, my snowblower’s transmission seized in the middle of things. One loud CLANCH! accompanied by a dramatically flaming fart of a backfire. But enough about my problems. How do YOU feel about my snowstorm experience?

    I am waiting for the young woman behind Gil to douse them both with iced tea, just as an echo of an earlier plot. The next couple of days should be interesting. Gil will be talking to a self-sedated Tina, who may not remember the encounter no matter what she agrees or refuses to do. I’m still working out the contrast between Aa’s resentment of his teammates going to the coach and his acceptance of Gil’s attempts to help. Maybe he is just grateful not to be on the verge of fainting day in and day out.

  3. I wonder if Gil would be buying meals for the 10th man off the bench. Or talking to his mom. I think we know the answer to that. What a turd!

  4. I’ll admit that the perspective in Panel 2 is pretty well done, but I still can’t help but see this as AaAa jabbing Gil in the brain with a fork.

    Pie and milkshakes are empty calories, Gil. Isn’t there a decent buffet in town?

  5. P2: Gee, Igor, I think it’s wonderful that you are fulfilling your Christian charity and feeding The Phantom of the Opera when he’s fallen on hard times. Just remind him to keep the mask on so he doesn’t shock the whole patronage at the diner the way he stunned Christine Daae when she unraveled the truth. And it looks like Igor is taking The Phantom in the family van back to his cellar in P3.
    I never knew The Phantom to have a hunkering for DQ Peanut Butter Blizzards and Whoppers but I guess there must have been a sequel.
