All I can interpret from reading and re-reading is that:<P>1) Deeds would like to keep her family completely out of her romantic life because they are a bunch of dysfunctional wackos who would accidentally or on purpose mess everything up.<P>2) Deeds felt naked without her sock puppet.<P>Other than that, I haven't a clue.

Bitch, bitch, bitch. <IMG SRC="http://www.keenspot.com/KeenBoard/biggrin.gif"> I don't know what DeeDee was talking about specifically. But I think she is trying to goad ryan into working at the donut shop. That and this is not a serious argument.<P>------------------

I think this <I>is</I> a serious argument, and possibly the beginning of the end of this couple. <IMG SRC="http://www.keenspot.com/KeenBoard/frown.gif"><P>Deirdre, being the experienced one, recognices this and tries to tell this to Ryan saying "Bitch Bitch Bitch". This, of course, is not a very understandable way of stating what she means, but this is <I>Deirdre</I>, right.<P>As for Ryan working at Tim Hortons, he probably could, but not at the same shift as Deirdre... it is only one person working nights there.<P>------------------

I believe the "Bitch, bitch, bitch!" refers to the possibility that her boss may be coming. That's just my guess.<P>------------------

Um, "bitch" also means "complain."

I believe that "bitch bitch bitch" refers to Ryan complaining about the inconvenience of the surrepetitious late-night rendezvous at Tim Horton's. The hand gesture and rolling of eyes in 2:162:3 adds to my impression that Deirdre is simply commenting on what she perceives to be Ryan's whining. (I'm sure damonk and <I>many</I> others would GLADLY set up a secret late-night rendezvous at a Tim Horton's somewhere between Ottawa and Toronto with Deirdre, inconvenience be damned.)<P>And from other recent forum posts, I suspect that the implied difficulties that would be caused by declassifying the relationship (2:162:2 by "it would just be... easier [to keep it secret]") would be caused by her family. Three years ago was apparently a whole lot of suck all around (Alan/Joe/Hel

The way I read it, Deirdre is feeling a little concerned for Phoebe's well-being right now, and was about to bring it up with Ryan, but she changed her mind midway through the conversation and derailed it herself. I don't really see this as the beginning of the end.<P>Why did she decide to switch gears like that? My own hunch is that Ryan had inadvertently brought up several good points that Deirdre hadn't been thinking of, and made her realise that she needed a bit more time before she knew what she wanted to say.<P>But then again, that's just my opinion... and after being without net access for two and a half weeks, I came back last night, caught up on the strips. When I got to the "she finally said it" strip, I kind of just sat back and tilted my head to the side, while wearing a "what the what?" expression on my face, as any credibility I had to overanalysing Avalon storylines took on the healthy glow of a Bre-X stock certificate. : )

To me, the "Bitch bitch bitch" thing sounded like her teasing Ryan. A year ago he couldn't get a date to save his life, and now that he's got a steady girlfriend, he's complaining about a realtively minor inconvenience.<P>------------------

Deeds is indeed talking about her boss. Just reread the strip again. Deeds asks "why don't you work here too," Ryan makes a comment basically saying "How hard can it be?" Deeds is saying that her job isn't as easy as it seems cuz her boss is bitching at her all the time...<P>------------------

<IMG SRC="http://www.keenspot.com/KeenBoard/confused.gif"> so Deidre is a 'bitch bitch bitch?'<P>/me runs very far away - so far away, in fact, that he runs right back, but at a phenomenally high speed. Very near to the speed of light.

NONE SHALL DOUBT MY LOGIC. /me kicks B.M.'s ass for stating the obvious.
I think it was Josh's idea situational humor, or something like that.<P><P>------------------

Guys, she's warning him about her boss, and Ryan is being slow on the uptake.<P>In the last panel, IMHO, she's getting exasperated that Ryan isn't picking up on the fact that he should probably leave-- she's WAVING GOODBYE to him, and saying "BITCH BITCH BITCH" to him while looking furtively behind her. <P>It's completely obvious, after staring at the !@#$ strip for a half hour or so :/<P>--apg
