Well, at least they're talking again. That's good, right?

...not a lot else to say about this one, at least nothing I can think of at the moment. But then, I kind of really want to go to sleep right now, so I'm not in a "thinking of things to say" mood. I leave it to YOU, the witty, clever reader, to start some interesting conversation about today's comic!

...or maybe the Voting Incentive? I'm sure there's at least a thing or two to say about THAT!

Didn't think Trigger realised anything.
Trigger, doesn't know anything about seduction but so far has been going pretty well.
Layla's still not entirely happy, even though the previous page seemed to make her temporarily forget their fight.

Incentive: See, this is why we use a hardware switch. Software can't always be trusted, and you can't bypass hardware without opening everything up.

D.OH! THAT'S what I was gonna say! I meant to give you props for guessing Trigger's response. Oh well...

If I had to relate Faroutthere in terms of memes, I would say these two are probably like...

Trigger: <Insert generic Yao Ming face>
Layla: <Insert either female rage face or female are-you-serious face>

Well, girls and boys are different; boys mature slower than girls, and also, they tend to need clear-cut, direct statements rather than subtler tactics. Layla should've said, "Hey, you're cute, wanna' go out with me?"
Since her initial attempts at getting his attention didn't work, she should've stopped and just made a direct statement. Sometimes even girls need direct statements if they're not on the same page. In fact, direct statements are awesome. People should use them more often. State your intentions first and no one will misunderstand.

In general, that's excellent advice. In this particular case I see two problems. First, Layla doesn't really want to go out with Kevin, she wants him to like her enough that he will spend money on her. Second, I don't think Kevin has any interest in talking to a girl or hanging out with a girl. For him, 'going out' is equivalent to 'making out'. Kevin seems to be the teenage equivalent of the guy who expects taking a woman to dinner and a movie will automatically lead to sex. So for Layla to get what she wanted (expensive gifts) she would have had to give Kevin what he wanted (make-out sessions). Before the 'sweet funeral' joke, she might have considered this to be a reasonable compromise. On the other hand, that's a bit similar to 'For that much money I'll make out with you for 15 minutes.'

(On the third hand, considering the sort of TV shows he liked to watch, "Turn off the TV and I'll make out with you." could be seen as reasonable.)

Actually, a straight-up invitation to suck face is exactly what Layla was trying to AVOID. Remember, the whole point was to get Kevin to WANT her: unfulfilled desire strong enough to make him pursue her via expensive trinkets. If he ever actually GOT what he wanted, that might cool his jets and ruin the whole plan.

But more than that, I just can't see Layla getting physical with anybody for any amount of money. The girl's got standards, ya know?

"The girl's got standards, ya know?" which demonstrates just how completely her parents failed in raising the "amoral, profit oriented" daughter they had wanted. Of course if they had succeeded, they would be dead. She would have killed them and taken over the company.

Ichabod did say at the start of the comic that the reason she shouldn't be running the evil corporation is because deep down, there was still some good in her.
...Or something. I can't be bothered going back to check.

I can see money being a part of a reason for Layla getting 'physical' with someone, but certainly there would be a lot other things involved (such as actually liking the guy)

Still, it's pretty good that they didn't succeed in making her a completely immoral evil bitch, since if that was the case what would have happened to poor Trigger back when he was in that secret bunker thing and practically dependant on her for his survival?

...You know, it's kind of amusing that Layla effectively did get what she wanted from Kevin - after she got really angry with him and gave up.
