I’ll say one thing… this strip hops around quite a bit. No moss growing on it, as they say…
We go from Andy eating Rusty’s flipflops to Cherry’s dad- Doc Davis. Who is much more, ummm… well-fed in this version of him… Anyway, what do they have to tell Rusty? Is Doc going to join the French Foreign Legion? Run for Governor? By the look on Cherry’s face, though, it would seem to be life threatening, which is odd since I don’t think we want to kill off characters in the first go-round, do we??
I like the Shaolin aged kung fu master hairstyling & scowl.
Well, there goes my “old man as coffeehouse-cycle shop habitué” theory down the drain. Still, I wonder if this is just a setup for another in-joke. Maybe Dad (the retired zoologist-turned vet) discovered that Andy wants to become Andrea.
I can only think of that scene in Life of Brian…
“MANDY: Yes. Well, there’s a reason it’s… like it is, Brian.
BRIAN: What is it?
MANDY: Well, I suppose I should have told you a long time ago, but…
MANDY: Well, Brian,… your father isn’t Mr. Cohen.
BRIAN: I never thought he was.
MANDY: Now, none of your cheek! He was a Roman, Brian. He was a centurion in the Roman army.”
“Cherry: Yes. Well, there’s a reason it’s… like it is, Rusty.
Rusty: What is it?
Cherry: Well, I suppose I should have told you a long time ago, but…
Cherry: Well, Rusty,… your father isn’t Mark.
Rusty: I never thought he was.
Cherry: Now, none of your cheek! He was a Corporate shill, Rusty. He is a family member of Happy Trail Farms, Inc.”
