#176 Please Don’t Expline

Tuesday, April 29th, 2008


In an earlier draft Pickering, truer to the song “Show Me,” was spouting a lovey-dovey monologue about twained souls, etc. I had already inked before it hit me: duh, she’s a scientist! When she rambles nervously in place of kissing, it’s got to be a biological explanation of her attraction. (See the script for the full text.)

This is taken pretty directly from a scene in the original sketchbook comic, which is in turn pretty similar to a scene in My Fair Lady. Jeremy Brett is soooo cute as Freddy, you guys. Once my mom and I made my dad sit through fifteen minutes of Audrey Hepburn walking around the Covent Garden set just to hear him say “It’s getting awfully cold in that taxi, Eliza.”


Lance and Eskimo, written & drawn by Laura Hughes. Webcomic 2007-present; stories & characters developed 1998-present. Come for the surreal parody, lovable scamps, and persistent homoeroticism, stay for the passing flashes of quality!
