Which is mightier, Elliot's Coat of Solitude, or Tedd's Winter Coat? On one hand, Elliot seems fairly certain that nothing can penetrate the coat of solitude. On the other, while Tedd's coat seems to do little to protect him from the cold it was able to protect even a pervert like him from a hammering. Clearly that is no ordinary coat.

I wonder if it's another gift from the DGB, like his glasses are?

I always assumed that Sarah was talking to Elliot, and was going to give him a hammering for bringing Tedd along in the first place.

Of course, it's possible I've been wrong all these years.

Obviously it is referring to Tedd's coat. As can plainly be seen here, the Coat of Solitude's otherwise formidable and impenetrable protection is overcome by Sarah. I am not certain how she is able to do this; it may be through knowledge of some unknown and barely conceivable weakness of the Coat itself, or alternately Sarah possesses latent or unsuspected magical abilities of great potency that Dan has yet to explain to us.

I find the latter possibility by far more likely. A weakness in the Coat itself just strikes me as too improbable to deserve true consideration.

So I get the impression that Chaos Priest is insane.

I'm new here, so I'm just trying to get my bearings. Yes, I am aware this is completely off subject.

It just seems like you can come up with some amazingly random things...

It's not a bad thing really.

Welcome, Fellow rodent, to the EGS forums. It's true; we are all clinically insane here, but you'll find it lends a very amiable atmosphere to the discussions here. Well, mostly. Sometimes we foam at the mouth.

*scratches head* Well, if somebody ever discovers a sane corner of the Internet, I'd like to hear about it, purely out of intellectual curiosity. I'd better not go there in person, though, sorta be contrary to the whole point of it.

I always thought Sarah referred to Elliot, here.

Sarah may have been slightly annoyed at Elliot being a bit oblivious, but Tedd was the one calling her a lesbian and he was the one wearing a thick winter coat. The Coat of Solitude looks more like a jacket really, but I guess Jacket of Solitude just doesn't have the same ring to it.

I bet Sarah's just averse to getting blood on a nice coat, even if it's someone else's.

DANIEL: Okay. One, that's Star Trek; and two, it's ridiculous.
MARTIN: What's wrong with it?
CARTER: "The singularity is about to explode?"
MARTIN: Yes.
CARTER: Everything about that statement is wrong.
DANIEL: How exactly is having weapons at maximum going to help the situation?
MARTIN: The audience isn't going to know the difference. They love: "weapons at maximum."
MITCHELL: Never underestimate your audience. They're generally sensitive, intelligent people who respond positively to quality entertainment.
TEAL’C: I do not understand why everything in this script must inevitably explode.
MARTIN: Look, you guys may all know how things really work out there in the galaxy, but I know the film business. Explosions make great trailers. Simple fact. More explosions, better trailer. Better trailer, more viewers.

You know, though in "story time" very little time has passed (a matter of weeks, I believe). Nevertheless, there have been changes in the characters, both in their mannerisms and in their visual portrayal, that makes them look like they've advanced from freshman to junior year over the course of those weeks. They've gotten bigger and more mature looking, and their heads are no longer too big for their bodies. Things like the "coat of solitude" have the feeling of junior-high holdovers that gradually disappear as freshmen turn into sophomores, and beyond. Elliot and Sarah currently appear to have been together significantly longer than the comic time line would suggest.

It's like the Simpsons, except the microcosm isn't spatial, but temporal. (By that, I refer to the fact that the Simpsons are within a few hours drive of any feature that might be found somewhere in America.)

== Spring, 2006 ==

Chronos: Coat of Solitude?! Oo-kaay... Obviously based on Supes' Fortress of Solitude, but far more strange.

Also, I agree with Sarah - anything but chick flicks. *shiver*

== September, 2008 ==

Crystal: Sarah's dislike of chick-flicks and defense of defying stereotypes is nice, but is a little surprising considering how "unremarkable" she's normally portrayed as. (Considering that it's remarkable to not follow stereotype, I mean.)
