Unless otherwise stated, my headcanon is that Juicy either the landlord or the landlord's partner. She's the plot device that will force the main cast out of the apartment and into a mansion on the outskirts of town wherein Hannelore will need to decide if she really wants to be the eccentric lady of the house who communicates with everyone else by notes the way that Emily Dickinson (poet and historical neighbour) did.

QC wrapping up? Well, Yelling Bird revealed Jeph’s retirement plan a few years ago....
YB said that's "the next five years worth of QC strips"; how old is that strip? JJ doesn't datestamp them.

...NVM there's the copyright date at the bottom which gives us the year at least - 2010.

The death of the bed. It's true, it is a good framing device. It actually makes me think those who have predicted Q.C. is wrapping up may be onto something.

If he is, I hope it'll be because he is starting another frequently updated webcomic, because I would terribly miss JJ's style and humor, but especially his knack of making you really empathize with all his characters....

Anyway, I'm not expecting it to happen any time soon, not least because AFAIK the QC Patreon is a major source of revenue that allows him to be a FT free webcomic writer(?), so at the very least he'd likely need some kind of alternative rev. stream (unless of course he already does plenty on the side of QC that can easily be expanded into QC-revenue equivalent).

Apologies if this is somewhat inappropriate to discuss on this forum.

Questionable Content has evolved. It started out as a 20-something sitcom, turned into a romantic comedy of sorts and then into social commentary. Right now, it's turning into a hard sci-fi story about how AIs would integrate with and change contemporary human civilisation. Because of that, I don't think it is likely to end any time soon. It is more likely to move onto another theme in time.

"Impetuous. Homeric!"

Love that line too. And of course during the film’s first run that line was censored in Massachusetts. (We’ve lightened up considerably since the 1950s.)

While they are dealing with the bed, they should also evaluate the structural integrity of the floor.  Otherwise the tenants below them might get a surprise visit from their upstairs neighbours.

Now you have me hoping they forget to evaluate the floor and that the downstairs neighbours are horrible homophobic anti-robot folk.

Cause honestly if I could fall through a ceiling of the people who treat me like garbage scantily clad with my arms wrapped around an SO it would make my year.

Just having this thought has made my whole day better.

Truck suspension is an excellent cheap and simple solution to the problem AND provides a very convenient setup for "truck bed" puns.

I hereby submit the term "off-roading" as a new euphamism for sexy shennanigans requiring use of the aforementioned truck bed.

Cue Faye singing "♪ ♫ She ain't heavy, she's my lover ♬"

Mind you, in a way the whole song could be representative of their relationship, even without the joke.

Questionable Content has evolved. It started out as a 20-something sitcom, turned into a romantic comedy of sorts and then into social commentary.

Its started as a comic about indie music fans, but that went nowhere in about 10 seconds.
The social commentary was there from quite an early stage, I'd have thought.
The biggest evolution has been in the quality of drawing, and also over time there's been less of the really off-the-wall dialogue. Bubbles' recent lecture at Pintsize was somewhat remiscent of that, but generally I think Jeph's less wordy than he used to be. No, I'm not going to prepare a graph of average word count per strip vs. time, I'll let someone else do that .

Oh, hell, as long as people are picking random couples out of the cast and talking about them getting married, why not Tilly and Tortura?  I think there's an entire comedy series - with moments of both heart-touching adorable and hair-raising terror - in that one.

There is at least one problem with it though. Has Tilly ever expressed a gender preference?  Or for that matter a gender?

Tilly prefers they/them, which suggests that they're non-binary.

They also chose a presentation that was not gender-specific.

Tilly doesn't have an article in the wiki!

Also, there's no particular issue with gender identity and marriage. I get to attend the wedding of one of my children-of-choice this fall: they and their spouse certainly won't have any trouble with their vows.
