Apropos of nothing...

I'm sentimental & voted for "I...I love you too!"

Bourbon as a coping mechanism is understandable. Bourbon as a coping mechanism for *being in love* is more problematic.

The artwork in the last frame of 2040 is excellent. Completely captures Marten's not wanting to deal with drunk Faye just now, and Faye's thinking she's silly, but she's actually just annoyingly drunk.

If by "happy" you mean "occasionally threatens and/or chucks patrons across the bar", then yes.

In one case, it landed her a job offer for a bouncer.

Hm, Faye sometimes seemed menacing or rather silly when drunk. This time around I think she´s kinda cute  :-)

I think that's why Marten does't want to deal with her - despite the (albeit silly) cuteness, Faye can  get violent, and they were to go dancing, not necessarily drinking and dancing (though the two often go hand in hand).  Dragging a person who'd drunk enough to flop about and can't even hold a straight face, and who's known for having a temper and can be moody around on what's supposed  to be a fun evening is just not a good idea, especially if you want to have fun. 

Marten's reaction is fine and natural.  Faye's is disturbing, but only if you know the reasons. 

Go, Marten.  Have fun.  Let Faye sleep it off.  You're still a good friend.

I agree wholeheartedly with Carl's post. Marten staying with Faye and sacrificing his own evening would just be him allowing himself to be slave to her moods and whims, AND quite likely get knocked out again when Faye has a drunken mood swing and gets mad at him, probably in response to him getting snarky with her.

Yeah, it's healthier for Marten to go out than stay home with someone who's drunk AND has a temper. Again, healthier FOR Marten. If that makes him a "bad friend" cause he's looking out for his own interests for once, then so be it. I was a little worried that Faye would puke in Marten's lap and headbutt him in the nuts again, but it looks like Jeph's not gonna repeat that joke, thankfully.

I am catching up this week after having some coping mechanisms of my own and I missed some of my favorite things!  Relationship progressions!  And irrational dislike of Faye! (I don't know if it's healthy or not but disliking a fictional character might help me find real people less annoying in comparison!)

Only the Roomba family could have made this better.

I know that Faye is just a fictional character, but I wish she learned not to be so dependent on alcohol to deal with her emotional problems. Is it weird to feel compassion for cartoon characters?

Not really.  I mean, I think one of the reasons we get so passionate about our arguments on these forums is because of how attached we are to these characters.  And the main reason we can do that is because of how realistic Jeph depicts them.  Now, occasionally someone will go slightly out of character in order to set up or deliver a punch line, but only slightly.  Now the setting definitely has its share of glaring inconsistencies, but the people behave like we expect them to.  It's definitely a tribute to Jeph how he's able to deliver a consistently funny comic 5 days a week without turning the cast into the emotional equivalent of cardboard cutouts.  So yes, it's perfectly fine to feel compassion for them.  At least, it better be for my sake. :-o

Yeah, popcorn, but the good, buttery(or buttery substitute) kind.  Not  the light stuff, which is lacking in buttery goodness.
I prefer kettle corn, myself.

Yeah.
Due to this I know that Africa and South America used to be close lovers, but continental drift forced them apart. SA hooked up with North America and Africa was until recently in a threeway with Europe and Asia before Europe broke up over Gibraltar 5 million years ago.

The real Amherst Amtrak for anyone interested.

Jeff was technically correct though, Amherst did once have two tracks, but the second one has been torn up except for a few ties and scrap rail.

According to Jeph's Tumbler, it was Springfield Amtrak. I guess Angus needed a wider range of departures.

Completely ridiculous/insignificant question; did you base the background of the most recent strip on the Springfield Amtrak station?
Yup! It is wonderfully desolate.
