I have to agree that the line about tragic accidents was out of character, though it certainly was funny.

actually, i'd say it's hard to believe you wouldn't. while your memories and experiences remain the same, your hormone and chemical balance would be changed completely. in the short term your moods and emotions would be unpredictable, as they interact with your established memories you may find you feel very different about some key experiences in your life. and that's assuming you jumped into a statistically normal body, can you imagine suddenly finding yourself in a body with a severe chemical or hormone imbalance?

I think this part of the thread just deconstructed Quantum Leap.

Man, I'm loving new Momo more and more with every comic.
And y'know, I see people saying the way she's been acting is un-momo. Well, has anyone ever thought maybe this is more Momo then she's ever been? I mean now she has nothing to fear, she's big, but before if she said things like this she was at their mercy she was so small.

Aw, Momo...

I don't know. I think she had more power than you give her credit for. Remember when she made Marigold go out for drinks using her scary electric stare? lol.

She was cute. I will miss the small, cute Momo, but I like the  new Momo.

As my wife is working a string of overnights and I drive her to and from my sleep schedule is nearly as shot as hers so I'm late to the strip today.

Is it a sign that I am a bad person that:

a.  I didn't need Carl's subscript to know what he meant;
b.  That I thought Momo could deal with Cossette and get away with it if she'd internalized that thought?

My compliments to the engineers in this world, the robotics are definitely top notch to allow the level of body language Jeph is showing

I'm thinking there's a chance she will go back to her own chassi, for whatever reason. Maybe she realizes Marigold can't afford it, maybe she becomes annoyed with people treating her differently or maybe she just misses being tiny.

There's some stuff from her old behavior that would actually not really work with her current size now that I think of it.

Like Angus saying "Wait, momo has a social protocall database? Then why are you such a-"

And then momo shouts something about how he shouldn't finish that sentence, waives her arms around frantically and her eyes bug out of her head. Putting aside the previously robotic nature of her speech that's all just far too fearful. Cute in little Momo. Big Momo doing that would have me wondering what the hell Marigold does to the poor girl when we're not watching.

On the "out of character" debate, I'm going to say that I agree, it was surprising to hear Momo of all people plotting doom and destruction. But I'm not sure we can entirely credit to Momo changing - it might be our perception of what she says as the reader changing because she does look different. Things that Momo has said in the past, back in the "aww, tiny Momo" days may have looked entirely different coming from her new chassis.

As far as the job goes, we can't forget the coffee shop run entirely by AnthroPCs. I don't think it's very likely for Momo to end up working there - for one, Marten wrote it off quickly and it seemed to be more of a gag than anything else, and for another I think Momo is going to end up working somewhere we've already seen.

I'm thinking she might end up working at the chassis store, if only out of my own hopes to see Charlotte again.

Heck, just teh point of view that she now sees the world from (much taller) will make a difference in how she percieves herself and interacts with others!

there's also the possibility that her software just runs abit differently on the new hardware. different chipset, different drivers, different memory allocation, etc.

Before Momo's new body, I always assumed the rounded/squared voice bubbles were like rounded/squared pupils on Futurama, just an indicator that one is human or a robot, not necessarily how they sounded.  Now I'm not so sure.  Although I think she still has robot font.

Plus, the nervous anime sweatdrop would just look gross now.

In any case, I really hope this sticks. QC has a nice track record of evolving the status quo, and this is an interesting charactler development. Momo's adorability hasn't decreased, either.

Jeph has been steadily introducing new characters, but new places show up less often. Maybe Momo's job will be an excuse to introduce a new venue.

Or she's been around Hannelore too long.

My thought was, she's in Marty and Faye's apartment, so that means she's within WiFi range of Pintsize...

This is Momo's chassis. It's her own as well.
And I don't think Jeph would do that, that's like character regression. Like if Faye all of a sudden was scared of relationships again, or if Marigold went back to never leaving her room. It would just be bad storytelling.

Like when DC had Superboy Prime realize the error of his ways and start a better life and then next time you see him he's evil and wants to kill everyone again.

Devious Momo is kinda cute. The thing is there are actually a lot of options in terms of what she could do, the library is one but maybe another could lead to either 'hey we have a few positions' and Marten steps in. Or maybe Momo ends up trying to set Marigold up on a date with someone that she thinks would make Marigold happy.

On that note, I wonder if AnthroPCs ever feel like going to school. Do they even need to spend an extended period "studying" something to learn it, or can they just download an infodump and become instant experts? And even in the latter case, are there any robot professors or scientists? Since the robot rights bill appears to be fairly recent, it'd be understandable if few of them are in high-level professions yet, but I guess it could be possible in theory.

I think the most interesting aspect of new chassis is the pure size of it and what it implies to have gone from a smaller, less capable one to a bigger one.

I suspect that the other characters are going to start having to pay attention to her whereas in the past she may not have been taken quite so seriously. Now the bigger size gives her more capability and on top of that additional *perceived capability* in others.

I'll enjoy seeing this play out with the other characters. It could go in a huge number of different directions.

What is odd about a machine that looks like an attractive human attracting attention from a human?

Additionally, since it is established that AnthroPCs have libidos and are subject to sexual emotions themselves, it seems logical that they also have the capacity to be creeped out by unwelcome attention.

As opposed to being attracted to walking meatsacks. Consistency of an uncooked steak. Constantly producing unsightly emissions. Covered in an epidermis that's in a constant state of death, imperceptibly shedding biomatter at all times. Bloated with fluids to the point of being approximately ninety percent water. Countless chemical reactions occurring within at any moment always causing the overall form to shift and alter itself. Aging at such a rate as to be measurable, inexorably visibly edging closer to the abyss so as to remind you of its' nonpermanence. Not to mention completely unsanitary to the point of actually being an ideal habitat for many bacterium.

Yeah. You'd have to be a real freak to be into those plastics and metals. It's all about the fluids and meats.

Not likely that Momo will be adding to COD's already over-stocked supply of young women workers (I know, she's a robot, but with her chassis, it totally applies).

Well that was easy. Surprised me, but then when reminded of how Marten got in it occured to me that it shouldn't have.

I think this is gonna be good wholesome fun. Tai has a way of getting under people's skin which will be hilarious to watch with Momo. She's always flustered pretty easily.

Marten's gonna be perfect for Momo during this time, because I don't think he's really gonna care about the new chassis overly much or treat Momo any differently. He's the one who always just viewed Pintsize as a little dude. Don't think he'll view Momo any differently than he ever has, which could be something Momo will need.

Plus between Tai and Momo we'll definitely get to see Marten working as the balancing influence here. They both can be a little more highstrung, energetic, extreme in their personality types. Marten does a good job of stepping in and defusing things before something troublesome happens.

Definitely gonna be a great trio.

...why would you give free reign of the library to a perpetually drunken undergrad with more tattoos than sense?  That will get you a library staffed with hipsters and moebots.

Just a nitpick, but surely that should be "free rein" (letting the horse have it's head), shouldn't it?

Rein, reign, rain - I see them confused so often!  :|

Speaking of Tais Tattos, apparently they are missing sometimes.

And today's strip clearly left out the anchor.

May be Tai has been proven to be worthy of their trust? Hmm. I have always felt that Tai would be in grad school. She was at least TAing at some point, wasn't she?

But yeah, this is gonna be fun. Surely Momo will be a very efficient librarian. She can carry a database containing whatever is in the library easily. Also, she has heuristic internet trawling algorithms built-in. In the near future library searches at SMIF are going to go to the next level. On the downside Marten may be reduced to a lowly shelver.

So... which of CoD's employees should Momo challenge to a duel to the death? (None, I'd say. Those girls are badass, and unless the new chassis has Summer Glau-like combat powers she'd stand no chance. Perhaps find out if the SMIF library can use a second assistant...)

Whee, called it. Of course, it wasn't exactly a long shot.

That was cold, Tai. Definitely cold... Though Marten is a bit wasted there. As a graduate music-nerd, he should be working in a music library, but perhaps Smif doesn't have one. And yes, I don't want to rain on Jeph's parade, but I think it should be rein not reign.

Momo seems to be looking nervously at her rear panelling in panel 4. Don't worry, Momo - as you said in panel 1, "it is nice butt".

And yes, I don't want to rain on Jeph's parade, but I think it should be rein not reign.

Maybe Jeph was making a PUN (or a palindrome!)

As opposed to being attracted to walking meatsacks. Consistency of an uncooked steak. Constantly producing unsightly emissions. Covered in an epidermis that's in a constant state of death, imperceptibly shedding biomatter at all times. Bloated with fluids to the point of being approximately ninety percent water. Countless chemical reactions occurring within at any moment always causing the overall form to shift and alter itself. Aging at such a rate as to be measurable, inexorably visibly edging closer to the abyss so as to remind you of its' nonpermanence. Not to mention completely unsanitary to the point of actually being an ideal habitat for many bacterium.

Yeah. You'd have to be a real freak to be into those plastics and metals. It's all about the fluids and meats.

You say this like its a bad thing....

There's an aspect of Momo's new personality that I find interesting: her naivety. She was just "reborn" as a (almost) human, and thus suddenly went from pet to part of the society. She is only starting to learn how to behave like so, and our strange customs must take some time to get used to, which allows jokes like today's butt.

literal-minded robot mis-interpretation...

A few days ago, someone on the forum had noted that her body language is the same as Hannelore. I believe that's because they both try to fit in, in an awkwardly shy way.
