"Brandy, I did some terrible things, but I told my priest and now I don't have to tell you."

I can think of a lot of places I'd rather be than Tommy's confessional booth... I know a cartoon priest who feels the same way.

Even Mary is so bored that she calls for her Second and suggests Tommy talk with God.

Don't worry, Tommy. Brandy hates drugs, but she hates taking the bus more.

Just leave out the part about selling tainted meth to her dad, and she'll be fine.

"I am aware. And I've been meaning to apologize for the role I played in enabling your most recent opioid addiction."

Tommy is so good at groceries, he can carry them in a bag without a bottom!

This is why I always use petroleum-based plastic grocery bags. They never rip.

I've been reading Tommy's thoughts all week! Being deep inside his mind has indeed been troubling. It's time to end this Vulcan mind meld!

I never took philosophy like Karen Moy or Harlan Jones, but as a layman let me see if I can understand how Nietzsche's comment is relevant here. Clearly, this statement feels cynical. Fear is not a positive emotion, therefore, morality in this sense is the negative result of this negative emotion. When is morality negative? The word 'morality' is only negative when it is merely the appearance of goodness, rather than coming from a sense of love and duty for the welfare of our fellow beings. Can someone be truly moral when they are simply trying to appear as such for the approval of others? So in this context, the quote chosen is in reference to Tommy's desire to appear moral while he is actually keeping secrets about his past from Brandy, which is not moral or ethical.

Now that I have thought about it, I have to give Karen Moy chops for this quote... which is really disappointing because I wanted to make fun of her for it. Because there is simply nothing else in today's entire strip to make fun of!!!

If she can respect that haircut, she can love you no matter what your past may be.

When you break up with someone, Tommy, you have to open your mouth and actually say words. You can't just think it and expect her to read your mind.

I'm glad to see them not going out for dinner. For a stock boy and a cashier, they sure eat out a lot! Besides, their dinner conversation was making me lose my appetite.

I'm just thinking... See! I'm doing it now! I'm thinking again.

For those who are interested, the soundtrack of Eddie and the Cruisers can be found on only one jukebox in America. If you want to listen to it, drop another nickel in the nickelodeon at the Pink Ginger Ale Brewery in Santa Royale.

Tommy is ashamed of much more than just his past.

But he's not so ashamed that he can't ignore his problems. That's his specialty.

This relationship is built on a sturdy foundation of past psychological abuse and secrets. IT. ISN'T. DYSFUNCTIONAL. AT ALL.

Tommy orders a triple chocolate cake for dessert to go with Brandy's milk tears.

Boy, did I guess wrong. I thought for sure it was Tommy mocking Brandy after she disclosed her father's alcoholism. It made sense that he would because he is, well... Tommy. Even if he isn't a pinball wizard.

"But at least he was home, and never did time in jail for being a pusher. Had he led others down that path, I could never forgive him..."

"Oh, Geez."

I've eaten at restaurants a few times, actually... at least twelve times. Maybe even more. But I don't ever remember a server saying, "We have some great beers." That being said, it is important for us to remember that Brandy is named after the song, not an alcoholic beverage, because she would make a fine wife, not because she is intoxicated.

I had a wonderful Fourth of July break, but I'm back. The problem has been that Tommy Beedie is back, too, and I just haven't had much motivation to blog about him. I'll give it my best shot this week, but please forgive me if my posts are sparse.
