My prediction: Emily brings Hanners and Marigold home; Em turns out to be a Yaoi fan so they stay up late watching some Magical Love Gentleman. Hanners and Marigold share some pictures of Marten with Emily, who develops a big crush on him.

That didn't quite fit into the poll options, so I chose "How Hannelore got home".

Anyone else have mixed feelings about Pintsize getting some character development? Stagnation is bad, but if there's nothing to replace the weirdness created by the old Pintsize, the strip will be lamentably more vanilla.

I don't entirely agree, I know I've always felt like there was something more behind the relationship between Marten and Pintsize and its nice to see it verbalized.  I'm sure Pintsize will come up with plenty more ways to create weirdness.

I feel that the weirdness created by Pintsize has already been replaced by the weirdness created by Hannelore, Marigold, Emily, Clinton, and when she was around, Padma. Not to mention the weirdness which was essentially created by Hannerdad (sentient space stations, spaceships and all that).

Jeph mentioned that the real Smith doesn't allow trans women to be students, but I should point out that Claire is a grad student.  Their graduate programs are co-ed, or so I've heard, which I guess makes it moot.  Whether or not Smif's undergrad allows trans women is yet to be determined, hopefully Jeph makes it one of the ways the QC-verse is better than our own.

Admittedly non-discrimination policies don't necessarily reflect practice, so it's possible that they don't accept trans women.

Possibly, but I don't think they would be able to outright say that they were denied for being trans women...not like that really helps.

Reading the dialogue before really looking at the panels, I thought for a moment Pintsize was the only discount he could get due to his poor credit, which he expressed in a self-deprecating way.

...this is probably not the right way to read a comic.

Now... speculation.   Martin's rage is over... what exactly?     Pintsize telling such a crude story.... or is he outraged that Pintize is telling the truth?     :-o

I believe I recall one strip that mentions AnthroPC's as "sexaroids" to some folks. But I could be wrong.

Also, Momo is one to retch considering what she's thought of in the past.

I'm starting to wonder how Marigold afforded Momo in the first place. Her original chasis still looked like a step up from Pintsize and Winslow, and Marigold doesn't exactly look like she's swimming in money. Was this ever explained or should I just assume her parents bought it for her like my friends parents always buy them stuff, like a friggen apartment...

So my first assumptions are that Marten is telling this story, and the glare is because the nice lady-bot behind the desk turns out to be Pintsize in a borrowed chassis.

But seemingly others are taking it differently.

Mari said she'd get a loan for a particular model for Momo. She can pay for the new chassis for some "sacrifices."

Momo promises to pay it back. She attempts to find work. Manages to find a job. Gets paid. And fails repaying it back.
