I actually thought the energy drink was supposed to be for Marigold.  :psyduck: Buuuuut I guess we'll find out tomorrow. Or Jeph will do a Yelling Bird comic.

Yelling Bird after consuming an energy drink? I'm not sure all the resulting profanity would fit in the comic, even with the new larger format.

Poor Marigold is just the type to exaggerate the importance of a setback and to blame herself. I hope there's some way she can get past "I'm such an idiot", maybe with Momo's help.

Yelling Bird can never meet the main QC cast.  He MUST not.  For that would mean meeting Pintsize, and the two meeting would result in a reaction not unlike putting mountain sized chunks of matter and antimatter together.  Utter destruction of the Earth.

I get the feeling that Yelling Bird hasn't been brought into the comic yet for that very purpose.

If Jeph ever needs to suddenly end the comic, it'd either be yelling bird/pintsize end of the world, OR Hanners flips and kills everyone.

He lay, often, looking at her sleeping face in the new light that fell in through the open walls of the strange house, and he stared at her skin and hair with his mouth open, transfixed by the quick stillness of her, struck dumb with the physical fact of her existence as though she was some careless star-thing that slept on quite unaware of its incandescent power; the casualness and ease with which she slept there amazed him; he couldn’t believe that such beauty could survive without some superhumanly intense conscious effort.

If he had just followed high-Marigold in and watched her sleep, that would be creepy (unless maybe he was watching to make sure she didn't stop breathing, since he wouldn't know what was wrong with her). But right now, he's in the main room of her house, she's fully clad, they're chaperoned (I don't think he'd do anything otherwise, but it removes potential threat), etc, and he's just happy to be around her, not getting off on watching her sleep it off.

Does Marigold have a chastity belt? :psyduck:

I see the transition in panels as going from "DID ANYTHING CRAZY HAPPEN LAST NIGHT?!" after seeing Dale, to "Does... does that mean 'no'?" after seeing Momo.

Alt-comic made me laugh too hard. Had to get a drink to stop coughing up a lung...

That was my thought too. Momo does indeed think Dale watching Marigold sleep is creepy and wants Dale to wake her up with energy drinks so he can't ogle her sleeping booty. But the other theory makes a lot of sense as well (and fits Jeph's comment better).

I dunno, the pancakes seemed to have defused the building panic attack over missing the date pretty well, leaving a somewhat confused "What happened last night" look. In that situation, waking up alone, tucked in bed, still dressed in the same clothes she put on yesterday and then finding that Dale hadn't just abandoned her, and Momo was with him and okay with the situation (meaning Dale didn't try anything bad)... That's pretty much optimal end result of how that date turned out. :)

Yeah no. If I am passing out grade fucked up and my roommate is home, and it's theoretically our first date... you should probably just go.

I'm pretty sure Marbear would find it worse if Dale had left and just feel abandoned and idiotic again. Now they can at least have a nice breakfast together. I mean, it's not like they're total strangers and also Momo probably invited him to stay over. Dale wanted to leave at first, so it's not like he pushed anyone into this. I don't think it's creepy.

I agree, this was the best way for Dale to handle it - Momo was there, so Marigold knows nothing bad happened, and Dale is still around so she knows that he wasn't put off by her being totally spaced out. This could turn out to be a surprisingly successful relationship!

I would be so creeped out by this in Marbear's shoes.

Having a trusted third party (Momo) basically give a wink/thumbs up goes a long way twords diffusing the creep/awkward/not-kosher-ness.   Not something I would do however -- I would have left and given prior situations I would have made considerable effort to leave her a message "Sorry you weren't feeling well - lets try again tomorrow?"

Unless Marigold goes full-on ridiculous and accuses Momo of making a pass at Dale.  Or vice versa.  :psyduck:

I imagine this would be the case for many people.

For Marigold in particular, however, given how she responded to Dale leaving long enough to use the bathroom when they were at the diner, leaving probably would have done more harm than good in this specific case. Dale might not know that, but Momo certainly would - thus the offer of energy drinks to encourage him to stick around, most likely.
