Every day with Ethan must be endless enjoyment for Lucas.

It’s like an adventure he never knew he wanted.
Partially because he never really wanted it at all.
Like an all expenses paid trip to go swimming through a sea of glass shards

Sorry if this is a stupid question, but what’s the painting behind the two? Anything we ought to recognize?

Also, “I can’t with this…”? Is there a word missing?

Thank you deep, it’s rare that I get to actually laugh out loud at things like this these days, but that one got me.

Jupp, thank you very much. Oddly enough, I think if it had been a phrase like the example in your link, I’d not have any trouble to understand it.

But it goes very well with Lucas’ first words: “Oh my….” : I love how you’ve managed to display Lucas’ amused exasperation with his friend by letting him express his many thoughts unfinished 😀

😀 Made my day! I hope Ethan realizes what a great friend he has in Lucas. Very cool. Looking forward to the next comic.

I suppose going to Nevada does count as pretty much gone.

Hey! I resemble that comment! Actually Nevada is pretty cool. Decent COL, sunny days almost all year. And depending where you are, you’re only a few hours from really awesome theme parks!

Depends where in Nevada. Las Vegas is awesome. Its cheap, its a short drive to LA short drive to the Sierra Nevadas, and you dont have to live in California! Also there’s no state income tax. And there are about 8 national parks within a couple hours drive. Plus job security is a plus (I’m a hydrologist.) Now I would hate life if I lived in Ely, Winnemucca, or Elko.

Being from Nevada, I can tell you that, no, it’s far better than death.

I just learned something!

I was about to correct you in your spelling AND understanding of quid pro quo, but figured I should fact check myself first.

Thank you for teaching me about a new concept! (to me)

I do believe this is why most publications italicize foreign language terms. 😀

Ethan has the affability of a Pikachu and the social tact of Relm. Or maybe Gau.

As soon as Ethan said “At the EXACT same time”, I knew where this was going XD

Did Ethan ever mention having a sister in CAD 1.0? Thought he was an only child for some reason

He had his brother who was the parents favorite.

Something among the lines of “You haven’t got a sister ***** you’re the classic example of an only child”

He had brother. In this alternative universe, he may got sister instead of Rory

Lucas be like:”Should I just let him continue confusing everybody, or should I—-nope, stepping in here before it gets weird.”

Looks like Ethan 2.0 has a better relationship with his parents than 1.0 ever did.

Perhaps not. “I don’t THINK it’s still up there” could imply that he’s not visited them, been visited by them, or even Heard from them since they left…

He probably has talked to them a few times, but you have a point- he probably hasn’t visited them in a…long time. Yeah. Leave it at that.

Significance of events:
Barry is irrelevant or was a former manager at Gamehaven/whatever it was before. Rory is inexplicably a girl now. Ethan’s parents are still alive…for now….
Rob works at Megagame because Ethan would rather gargle nails than hire him. I wonder if Abby (from the Gamehaven MMO arc) was an intern there at one point…
Christian had nothing to do with Gamehaven, though he would be appropriate to turn out to be the CEO of Megagame.
Tim’s really doing the full reBOOT… except for the character’s PRESENCE, everything else is different.
