Come on, what did he do? Did he get caught eyeballing the mannequins one too many times? Or maybe he was carefully going through the lingerie section looking for that perfect item? In his defense I think it's likely he was just shopping for clothes for his female form at the time, and didn't go as a girl because either he didn't have the right clothing at the time of his banning or he was too embarrassed at the thought of being a girl in public.

On another note, does Grace have an addictive personality? She certainly got hooked on Black & White quickly enough, and Grace is pretty much Dan's author insert and he's used that reason for why he won't drink. If she does get addicted easily then I think Mr. Verres may have made a mistake in giving her coffee. A bubbly, hyperactive squirrel-girl is bad enough without a caffeine addiction thrown into the mix.

If his reaction when Matt came to deliver the pizzas is any indication (or how long Elliot and Sarah knew him without knowing about his recreational gender bending, or his reaction when his dad "outed" him), he definitely doesn't want to be seen as a girl.

I assume he was just shopping for girl clothes, but there's one thing that makes me wonder a bit:
woundn't everyone there just assume that he is a girl?
MARTIN: What?
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.

My guess is his dad didn't want him to go out transformed in public so he went shoping with the TFG in a backpack. He ended up going shopping for women's clothing and ended up creeping out the normal clientèle so much he got banned.

Grace is Dan's insert character?!?!?! :o

I had no idea! I'm not being sarcastic, I'm actually really serious.

I always assumed it was Tedd(small being a trade in for girly looking) or even Elliot, or a combination of the two. That's if one even existed.

Well, Grace is a magical girlfriend, which usually points to the lucky guy as the insert, but Grace is a bit on the Mary Sue side for a magical girlfriend...

I suspect there's no planned insert character, and Grace's excesses are a combination of Dan's early ineptitude and her effectively puppy-dog-eyesing him.

Chronos: Gee, what the heck was Tedd doing?!

Also, how does a cow eat villagers? Either that's a big cow, or those are very small villagers.

As have I. But simply because something was said in jest does not mean that there cannot be some small portion of truth within. After all, in the comic Dan uses a squirrel-person for his avatar, and it started out female. Many times a writer may project some of their characteristics, personality traits, ideals, and desires into their characters, especially when starting out. There wouldn't be nearly as many Mary Sues otherwise. But that is not to say that any one character contains all of an author's traits, or that Grace is all that similar to Dan. If Dan were pretty much Grace then that would imply he would want to have sweet man-on-squirrel-girl love with somebody like Tedd. Sorry, I realize I'm not very good at explaining things sometimes, especially so when I'm just making it all up. I guess...

...basically what I'm trying to say here is "I ship Tedd/fDan".

Dan's personality is pretty much spread out over the cast - which is only natural for a writer, especially when once is working so long on 1 cast of characters. I tend to think that the linked filler was more of a (past) wishful thinking. Again, very understandable, who wouldn't want to be a bubbly, fluffy squirrel-girl with a bushy tail ;)
And as for shipping: Ellen/Dan. She'd have the guts to give him a swift kick in the rear against all his fears, whenever necessary. Tedd would have a rather hard time dealing with his OCD...
now that reminds me, there was a fun sketch on deviantArt of those two (Ellen&Dan) on a dinner date once... :-}
