He wants it out in the open so the pressure is off. Dierdre needs Ryan in cases like this because, for all the bravado, she can't actually cope with complex situations except by running away. Josh has drawn her character very consistently.<P>Love that guy.<P>PJH

I took it as;
Ryan - "Aw, crap. As expected, they're going to make a big deal about it. Hands up who didn't see this one coming a mile off?"<P>Joe - "...The hell?"<P>Ceilidh, Helene and Dierdre - "Eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeep!"

Actually, I've gotten that same sort of defensiveness myself more than a couple of times. A lot of times, people dissapoint you by not actually ticking you off, and it just fades away. Heh, wouldn't be as interesting, to be sure. However, life does not always throw us the curves we expect.<P>------------------

Okay, my speculation on the next strip...<P>Joe: You two have been...
Ryan: Yes.<P>Joe: Have you two actually... Umm...
Ryan: None of your business, but yes...<P>A pause...<P>Joe: Woohoo! Way to go, Ryan! <IMG SRC="http://www.keenspot.com/KeenBoard/biggrin.gif"><P>All the while, a confused Ceilidh and Helene look on.<P>Time will tell if I'm even close.

Don't think that just because Ryan anticipated this, he would have a lighter attitude... You can't apply logic to emotional matters. It's more like, "I know they're not going to just let this pass, so I'm going to have to make them see that this is ok."

Joe's look in the third panel will stick in my mind for a long time. It's as if his left eyebrow decided to join his hairline. Maybe he's practicing to be the People's Champion... <P>------------------

ABSOLUTELY PRICELESS. This is the BEST! Deidre with the "Move along! Nothing to see here!" look and Ryan with the "WTF are you looking at?!?!?" look! I was hoping for a strip just like this! The "inquisition" in the Saturday trip was also righteous! However, we need more inquision!

I see her as giving "moral" support to Ryan, and certainly understanding his frustration, but at the same time seeing this as something <I>he</I> has to do.<P>But it could be anything, really. It just seems like it has to be <I>something</I>. One of those understated yet significant things.<P>Either that, or she's imagining what he'd look like with contacts instead of glasses. <IMG SRC="http://www.keenspot.com/KeenBoard/wink.gif">

I am kind of wondering if Alison will be showing up. I'd like to know how she takes things.<P>Where is she, anyway? Or is she working at Hildegarde's while Mrs. Page is helping with the party?<P>Wapiko-chan<P>------------------

You just have to love the look on joe`s face.
His whole arm is just wandering about, unsure of where to go, The mouth is halfway through "Whaaa..." and the eyebrow expresses more puzzlement than the average pink giraffe (Yes, *That`s* how to do it)<P>------------------
Q. Why do anarchists drink herbal tea?<P>A. Because proper tea is theft.

I went on vacation before seeing Friday's strip. Everything from then til Teusday was all waiting for me when I got back.<P>It's rather embarassing to be reduced to snickering gigglefits in the middle of one's office.
