Truely a difficult art.

Typical Alan, totally oblivious to Angry-Ceilidh. Of course, that is her default setting...

Who else can imagine Alan coming out of this incident duct taped?

And it would seem that Ceilidh has learned some new expressions during Josh's hiatus.

Until next time, keep your stick on the ice.

Anyone notice that is not, in fact, 3:162? Not me, until I actually started colouring it.

Double-sided so the feathers stick better :)

new?

What Alan needs to make right now, is either a confession or a swift exit - stage right.

The punctuation in frame 4 speaks volumes.

She's not asking a question; she knows exactly what he did.

When a woman says that to me, with that tone, I get scared.

VERY scared.

Run, Alan, run...

Except Alan is going to say "Joe did it!"

Similar to the plans Ceilidh's obviously contemplating?

A duct tape wallet, huh? Very artistic.

Though to a different end.

Both literally and figuratively :)

Y'know, I wonder sometimes whether Alan is really as dumb as he seems, or if he just plays dumb to try to forestall the wrath of the three Furies who inhabit his social circle (Ceilidh, Phoebe and Alison). It seems hard to believe that he could be as completely clueless as he acts, particularly given the amount of desperate scheming that goes on between him and Joe.

And I agree with ParkRNDL -- that punctuation perfectly and precisely conveys the tone of Ceilidh's words, even if it isn't strictly "correct" grammatically.

I look forward with a mix of anticipation and dread to the next episode. I would say "poor Alan", but he's had this coming for a while now...

I seem to recall duct tape getting Alan into trouble once before. Of course, it's totally within his personality to forget or simply not learn from that experience.

I think it was Homer Simpson who said something like:
"What's the follow-up to a zany plan? An even zanier plan!"
