Wow awkward…but yeah nice bathroom
Jayden December 11, 2013, 1:01 PM EST.
“This is a nice bathroom.” isn’t fooling anyone man.
Aviator Bear December 11, 2013, 1:01 PM EST.
Oh lord. Paulo is now the one who wants to go cry in the bathroom. He will soooo run into mike by friday.
Silveryogurt December 11, 2013, 1:01 PM EST.
that’s a nice bathroom indeed. I like your taste in bathrooms.

I love this guy now.

Why was Paulo looking off in the distance in panel two, he couldn’t have been looking that far lol.

Seems like Paulo is looking for Mike

I guess It’s time for some more Mike x Paulo moments again or something in the future I suppose. -___-….
Twiggy December 11, 2013, 1:04 PM EST.
@Sty I hope he is. At this moment I think that Paulo and Mike can really help each other. They can simulate them selves (I hope I wrote it right) to each other since they both feel alone. Also Paulo would be proving that he’s a good friend (good to male friends).
Jonas97face December 11, 2013, 1:04 PM EST.
You’re not the one to judge Paulo But you gotta hand it to that guy, at least the line is original, if not effective…

Oh, the irony! First, Lucy walks in on Paulo and Tess, and now Paulo walks in on these guys.
The lighting in the bathroom is similar to the lights on this page from Curtain Call: http://www.bittersweetcandybowl.com/c74/p6.html
Just in a different direction. Nostalgia!
Wait… the door was open? NO MODESTY
Hawz December 11, 2013, 1:39 PM EST.
Oh. He wasn’t upset because they glared at him. He was upset because #Mike ran off. This is him looking for #Mike.
Gate-senpai December 11, 2013, 1:47 PM EST.
Ok this is wired Paulo has to pee and two people are kissing
tabby December 11, 2013, 1:49 PM EST.
At least he didn’t say: “This isn’t what it looks like.” I kind of wish that boy would have said something about the girl instead of the bathroom like: “Hey, she’s cute and I wanted to let her know that I like her…” Although that’s just me trying to be a romantic and there is nothing romantic about this.
I think I’ll agree with everyone that is saying that Paulo’s looking for Mike. He probably noticed when everyone went to go help Abbey and Mike was nowhere in sight… kind of cute actually.
Also, congrats Paulo on going from one awkward situation straight into another.
I do hope Abbey feels better. But at least Daisy can now say she nailed Abbey… not in the way she wanted.
Geez, it’s like Daisy becomes an abusive person when she’s drunk… obviously not intentionally, but the way she acted around Mike in front of Abbey, that nut shot she gave Abbey a few pages ago, and slamming a pin into Abbey’s arm… that’s without even mentioning that she got drunk in the first place against Abbey’s wishes. Wow, this will be rough waters for the Abbey X Daisy ship alright.

I laughed so hard at your nailing Abbey joke
Somewhat December 11, 2013, 1:59 PM EST.
@supertails19: It was her choice to drink whether Abbey likes it or not though. He said he didn’t want her too, but ultimately, Daisy still had the right to choose.
Moogle December 11, 2013, 2:00 PM EST.
What is Paulo looking for? Clarity? You won’t find it upstairs.
Shiloh December 11, 2013, 2:03 PM EST.
It makes me wonder why they didn’t close the door if they’d be ashamed of someone catching them, lol.
Yelikarts December 11, 2013, 2:06 PM EST.
Yay! We get a joke when i thought we were going to get more self-pity time.
PrincessKarina December 11, 2013, 2:07 PM EST.
Paulo is just ENCASED in the love of other people; to the point of near suffocation.
Really, it serves to remind him of the despairings in his own love life, and it certainly isn’t helping with his longstanding sentiments towards Lucy.
Add the complication of getting involved with Rachel, and right there you have a character you just GOTTA sympathize with.
Bluecaptain December 11, 2013, 2:13 PM EST.
Man, poor Paulo really can’t get away from couples being abound in this comic. Ain’t that how life always is …. Don’t think he was looking for mike just yet. I guess no one’s noticed that Mike probably left the party.
Subaru December 11, 2013, 2:17 PM EST.
Ahh Paulo, when something’s gone wrong all you seem to be able to do is stoke the fire. In other news, random person A, and random person B shippers have smooth sailing ahead.
Misanthrope December 11, 2013, 2:19 PM EST.
Paulo had a similar experience in a bathroom before. I wander if it’s bringing back memories.
Blue fox December 11, 2013, 2:27 PM EST.
coming off a 10 hour civ 4 bender to say this:
Bow chicka wow wow. Also where the **** is David, this is a moment custom made for him.
Now that that’s out of my system. @Lickit&Stickit, You think she’s a bad girlfriend for what she said to Mike. I hardly see anything she said as being remotely connected to a mentality of “I wanna jump your bone Mike”. All i saw was a friend confronting Mike about why he was so quick to defend Lucy and be super friendly with her when (by Daisy’s perception) Lucy was a bad friend. It’s understandable because from what Daisy said herself is that she’s tried everything she could to be a good friend to Mike, but Mike was insistent on being friends with someone who was a bad friend (again by Daisy’s perception). She wasn’t saying why did you love her more than me. SHE SAID LIKE, like can refer to friendship.
That’s why i said you have “fifty-o-vision”. Because you see her comments, which were of friendship as her coming onto Mike, but because it’s a she saying it you think she was being a “bad girlfriend”. That’s how people in the fifties thought, that a woman can’t be friendly with a guy or say anything like what Daisy said to Mike without it being a come on.
buchanen_neket December 11, 2013, 2:30 PM EST.
I want to know if this guy has a name. He is my new favorite character in the story.
…also, does anyone else find it funny that while he’s complimenting the visual appeal of the bathroom, his lady friend is shooting him the death glare?
Pax December 11, 2013, 3:02 PM EST.
Well we can’t really see the bathroom,so nope.I have no idea is it nice or not

Who are you looking for?
Shika December 11, 2013, 3:46 PM EST.
This is why you LOCK the bathroom door when it’s in use.

I love how that girl and Paulo have the exact same expressions to his comment in the last panel.

Speed of sound December 11, 2013, 4:48 PM EST.
Interesting how Paulo is still drunk, but he’s staying almost solemn with his emotions and isn’t yelling them out like he was with Mike earlier. I’m not sure if the alcohol is wearing off, or if his subconscious is growing less rowdy (by the way, people tend to freely live in a subconscious state when drunk, or at least that’s what I’ve witnessed/heard).
Fangs December 11, 2013, 4:51 PM EST.
or you put a sock on the door, lol.
buchanen_neket December 11, 2013, 5:03 PM EST.
Fahaha, I love how Paulo’s blush is leaking over his bangs in panel 2. In fact, it seems a lot of colors are bleeding into spots they shouldn’t on this page.. I gotta say, Taeshi didn’t give it her all on this one; the coloring is pretty sloppy. She’s done much better on other pages, especially around the beginning of this chapter. I wonder if anything significant is going to happen by the end of of this ever-expanding chapter.
lucyloo December 11, 2013, 5:33 PM EST.
From his “wait a minute” expression before he scanned the crowd with his hand over his eyes, I’d say he’s looking for Mike. He checked the bathroom first, and it seems someone WAS there but not Mike. Moving on!
Hm, making out at your friend’s birthday party in her bathroom. Not much better than the angst, if you ask me. Hope they were planning on sanitizing it after cleaning it up, yeesh.

But in all seriousness, LAWL
Kat Smith December 11, 2013, 7:22 PM EST.
Is it bad that I thought the guy cat looks a bit like Suitcase? Maybe it’s the green shirt. In fact actually there’s the girl with Taeshi’s blue shirt too. Taeshi x Suitcase smut.

Knight-A December 11, 2013, 8:00 PM EST.
@Anialator - Lulz, you mean it’s a self-insert cameo?
Zone December 11, 2013, 8:01 PM EST.
You really think she meant like as in friends? Sure that explains her frustrated jealous look, and her calling him by her old pet name for him: “Mikie”.
Honestly, I only have one friend of the opposite gender that is really close to me, and it works because we have a brother/sister relationship. But he’s a pretty rare case. I’m not going to go into that, but I don’t believe that the general population of guys and girls can be “Just friends,” that rule applies to both genders. Unless someone isn’t into their opposite gender, feelings happen. On both accounts.
Plus, we know Daisy still dreams about Mike instead of Abbey, not to mention her pissy attitude after Mike saw her with condoms. She wasn’t upset a friend saw her (notice she didn’t react much to the guy that liked her) but she got all surly and cranky when Mike saw. No matter how you try to avoid it, it’s obvious she’s not over him.
And I don’t have to have 50s mentality to read those billboard clues.
Lickit&stickit December 11, 2013, 8:02 PM EST.
@Lickit&stickit - Oh my GOD, will you stop it with the “Daisy is a bad girlfriend” rants! We’re not even FOCUSING on her right now!
One, she is DRUNK. Drunk people do dumb things like accidentally punch their boyfriend in the balls. As for the tail, she was BLINDFOLDED! She didn’t AIM to hit him, obviously!
Two, is it a CRIME to be upset about being pushed away in the past while someone that was oftentimes abusive is kept as a “dear friend”?
Three, I dream about my friends all the time! What if she was dreaming about Paulo, huh? Or Sue? It was a back-rub, not sex or kissing!
Four, she DID react to Augustus, and her issue when Mike did was not “Oh nooo, my crush saw me” but rather “CRAP, TWO of my friends saw me carrying these!”. I expect it would’ve been the same if it was Amaya followed by Sue. Or vice-versa.
Five, I’m sure if she had pet-names for anyone else, she would be using them. Just because she’s calling him “Mikie” doesn’t mean anything. I have a friend that calls me by a pet-name all the time, and he’s not the least bit interested in me!
And lastly, I’M GETTING TIRED OF SEEING YOUR BILLBOARD-SIZED RANTS! Knock it off and talk about the page, not about how much of a **** you seem to think Daisy is! The focus of this page is Paulo, his walking around, and the two people in the bathroom. Give your comments on that, because your rants are, frankly, off-topic.
Excuse me for the long counter-rant. Sorry for the big ranting post, Taeshi and Suitcase.
Zone December 11, 2013, 8:37 PM EST.
The fact that when I looked, there were 69 comments, greatly amuses me.
But whoa poor Paulo, and poor couple. On the other hand, everybody knows that the bathroom is te most visited room during a party, so it’s a terrible place to get er…… “playful”….. they could have at least locked the door
FlyingPotato December 11, 2013, 8:46 PM EST.
When I look at this, I suddenly come back to that bathroom scene in Mean Girls….
eatedurtaco December 11, 2013, 9:20 PM EST.
I actually wasn’t ranting, just responding. And you know Zone, you rant and rave with billboard posts as much as the rest of us.
I brought up Daisy because I think it’s important. Here we are stoning Paulo, at one drunken chuckle, when Daisy’s brewing a a menagerie of drama and pain. Double standards is all. I actually was also only on that topic today because someone carried it over.
Finally, I never said she was a ****. I just said her sad obsession with Mike while she is supposed to be taken by another makes her a manipulative bitch to poor Abbey’s feelings. Get it right sweetheart.
But to add to today’s page, ain’t nothing to discuss. Just two rando teens making out in a bathroom, nothing wrong or embarrassing. Honestly the people saying how scandalous that is have not ever been teenagers.
Lickit&stickit December 11, 2013, 9:25 PM EST.
@Lickit&stickit - I never said I didn’t do big posts or rants. I said I was tired of, the past few pages, you slamming on Daisy and not really talking about anything but that. Sure, she’s making a few mistakes, but it’s nothing to deserve this. Her questions weren’t worth this abuse, and she’s really drunk so she’s not really thinking straight. Frankly, I think she shouldn’t have gotten drunk at all, but that’s a whole other can of worms.
People seem to have different theories about why he’s walking off from the group and looking around the house. What’s your theory?
Zone December 11, 2013, 9:37 PM EST.
I do think he must be looking for Mike. Mike is the only member of the main group we didn’t see on the last page. We know he was having a conversation with Mike just before he was interrupted. He probably wants to continue. He goes to the bathroom because there’s a lot of traffic there, and it’s enclosed from the rest of the party. If you can’t find him in the open, he must be in a room, and the bathroom is a good guess. Logical.
If he wants to talk about Daisy to other readers of the comic, this is the best place to do it. The comments section is not just for talking about the current strip, but also general opinions. Every opinion is valid here. If you want to refute his points, then you are absolutely free to do so. Restricting his right to talk about whatever he wants: not so much. If he wants to talk about it, let him talk.
Lordofrye December 11, 2013, 9:57 PM EST.
Given the fact that mike misses Lucy, a bathroom seems like senceible place to look. In more ways than one.

+bird+ December 12, 2013, 2:54 AM EST.
Maybe there is another bathroom in the house. Maybe Mike is there. Or maybe Mike has left the party. If Paulo is searching for Mike then Mike won’t have left the party. Just some theories coming up .
Also @Lordofrye I agree with your comment about restricting others from talking and that kind of things. @Lickit can post what he feels about Daisy if he wants .
@Zone calm the frick down . Nobody is getting hurt (I hope) by Lickit’s comments, unless your a big Daisy supporter .
I agree with Lickit that Daisy is still obsessed with Mike, but not as much as she used to be. I don’t think she is a bad girlfriend. Although I must agree with @buchanen_neket about when she was asking Mike why he liked Lucy more then her. I believe she wanted to know why Lucy was a better friend then herself (herself=Daisy). So I don’t think that Daisy was really asking why Mike didn’t lover her (her=Daisy).
All in all. I still think Daisy has feelings for Mike and still has a crush on him. I don’t think she has gotten over him. But I don’t think that she is trying to cheat on Abbey. She is a good girlfriend (if you don’t count the nut cracking and pin tacking since that was an accident ) and she doesn’t idolize Mike as much as she used to .
Well I have said what I was gonna say and now I go silent .
Jonas97face December 12, 2013, 4:07 AM EST.
There’s a difference between making casual convo about Daisy and what Lickit&Stickit is doing. What Lickit&Stickit has been doing is akin to what Thanatos does when it comes to Paulo (just constantly ranting even when the character they hate isn’t the focus of the page). That’s why i picked on L&S (saying his vision is stuck in the 50’s) and why Zone got on his case.
buchanen_neket December 12, 2013, 4:17 AM EST.
Now, focusing on @Lickit&Stickit since i love a good argument even if it is asinine.
1) Was it a pet name or was it possibly just a NICKNAME? Hell I got called “Okie” by a lot of girls on the ship, i didn’t take it as them crushing on me (in most cases, there were a few that were). It was just a nickname between brothers in arms. Similar thing here, Mikie isn’t Daisy’s pet name it’s her nickname for a close friend.
2)as for your second paragraph, i got dumped on deployment because of that same mentality. I had a female subordinate that i was really close friends with, similar situation to yours (i was basically like an older brother to her). But because someone thought the same way you did they ended up breaking into my locker taking an envelope and writing to my girlfriend that i was cheating on her.
3) The biggest thing i’ve been trying to point out is that issue i just pointed out. You’re misinterpreting Daisy’s actions because of your mindset that really close op gender friends can’t exist without there being some ulterior motive. Sometimes you can be close friends, close enough it looks like the pair is in love. But the fact still remains that the two aren’t going to actually go after each other. In the case of Mike and Daisy, they are both in commited relationships AND both know that about the other AND wouldn’t betray that regardless of how much one wants the other.
In this case Daisy knows she can’t get Mike even in this case. Now if she brought up Sandy (someone we do know she’s jealous of) then i’d agree. But she knows Mike is in a relationship with Sandy, not Lucy, and that she couldn’t get him even if he dropped the relationship with Lucy. That’s why your argument that her expressions and words are of jealousy falls flat as Sandy is her romantic rival, not Lucy.

HongKat December 12, 2013, 5:14 AM EST.
also want to note i did notice the souppy kitty (pretty sure the brown one is supposed to be a cat). Not sure if it was intentional, but still a funny cameo if it is.
buchanen_neket December 12, 2013, 6:23 AM EST.
Well, it seems to me like Paulo misses Lucy a lot still and that when he saw the two kissing he thought of her even more. Deep inside he really hates Mike and wants Lucy back. I think that everyone is hurt by this but aren’t showing it either because they’ve become so drunk that they’re in a subconscious mindset or that they’re just trying to forget things by partying. I gotta say, Daisy, dear, you had a very nice aim when you pinned the tail on Abbey.
