LOL @Meg and Samantha off to the side at Karens' party ("BCD" #4, panel one), with their eeeevil expressions, up to something. I suppose this was a brief period when they actually got along. By the first chapter of "The Popsicle War" they were already taking potshots at each other.

PP: See Ag get a new cause. (Fred & Daphne in the background of 5?)

BCD: Ah, yes, the official start of the "MARSHALL'S GAY!" stuff. And the launch of the USS Standi. I miss that ship.

And with Behind Closed Doors the strip departs from the newspaper friendly format and begins to fully evolve into a strip that's so much better than what's available in the funnie page these days.

Interesting thing I noticed in Behind Closed Doors page 2 first panel is Charlotte and from the partial profile she looks like she's smiling. It would seem that a drunk guy making an ass of himself is amusing to everyone including bible thumping fundamentalists.

Also, is this the official start of the "Karen doesn't respect Marshall's boundaries" stuff?

They should be combined into "Karen doesn't respect the fact that Marshall's gay". For simplicity's sake!

Whose rooms do we see in BCD 1?

1 - Rich?
2 - Marshall?
3 - Aggie. Unless Charisma has a photo of Nick on her wall, but it seems to be a photo of Nick and a younger Aggie.
4 - Stan... or Lisa?

Room #2 could, alternatively, be Brandi's. (Although IIRC we aren't introduced to Brandi's athletic side until "Drama Queens" when her brother Carlos asks her to fill out his basketball team.) In any case, likely someone or another with an interest in athletics.

Stisa wasn't a thing until late in the comic.

So this could be entirely informed by hindsight, knowing what Karen in particular will become, but for some reason they're both kinda facepunchy in that last panel. (Not because Marshall is turning her down (entirely within his rights!), of course, but he's a touch patronizing about it?)

Meg is all but rubbing her hands together. Bwaha.

Well of course. It is godly to snicker at the drunken sinner facing the consequences of his sin.

I'd assumed Charlotte was gazing longingly at Marshall. Note the blush lines, and the similarity of the panel layout and her facial expression to panel two, with Brandi eyeing Stan.

Go ask Alice; I think she'll know.

Everyone is always gazing at Marshal and blushing. because of reasons. Secret girl reasons.

5.Lisa, you got a cousin named Tim Mitts?
6. Do we still have a music thread? I just discovered spotify.
1. I imagine Gisele saying this. In my head, she sounds like a French-Canadien Starfire.
2. SEX! SEX! SEXY-SEX! BONER-BONER UTERUS! (I stole that from an online comedy skit... cracked, or college humor.)
3. Rather... blatant.
4. Does anybody else remember Madonna's cringeworthy double entendres from Dick Tracy?

Cringeworthy? I loved that flick. She could've done better than Warren Beatty, then again Madonna had eh taste in guys. (She DID marry Sean Penn, after all.)
