jesus fucking christ i’m getting heart palpitations from this comic
OKAY SOME SHIT-FOR-BRAINS left out the last page of this BEAUTIFUL FUCKING COMIC
I SWEAR I’m going to BUST A TIT
SO HERE. LET ME FIX IT.
Also I want to point out, because a lot of people probably don’t know these quotes by heart or haven’t seen them in context, because it kind of looks like Alan has forgotten the next line and Jim says it for him, but that’s not the case. The part where Alan pauses and stares blankly at Jim is actually part of the quote. Homer is going back and forth with this shop-keeper, and he pauses and stares blankly because he doesn’t know what potassium benzoate is. And the man answers for him, “that’s bad”. They share an awkward moment and then Homer asks “can I go now?”, not sure if the conversation has appropriately ended.
Alan remembers the scene right down to the timing and everything. The scene in the show is frikkin’ hilarious, but then R-SUG’ came along and re-purposed it into something where it has a completely different meaning and it’s HEARTBREAKING and I love it.
