The Script For Today's Comic!
Tanner and Tom are chatting at the coffee shop, as usual. Karla comes along and puts a single-stemmed rose into Tom’s hands and kisses him on the cheek with that sort of quirky little smile that only he gets to see.
KARLA: That’s for being you.
(She walks away. Tanner reacts, finding this a little odd.)
TANNER: What was that about?
TOM (looking after Karla fondly, and perhaps a little goofily with love): Sometimes, when Karla’s filling up the car, she thinks of me and buys me a rose. It’s her way of showing love to me.
TANNER: But you never buy her roses.
TOM: Don’t have to. I let her hang out with Seth, and I watch Buffy with her when she’s down. That’s what love is to her.
TANNER: ..and to you, love is gas station roses.
TOM (Unashamed): Yep.
TANNER (good-natured joshing, with a slight bite): You realize if you were any girlier, you’d be lactating.
TOM (pushing up his boobs as if he was showing them off to a crowd of strip-club attendees, overly excited by the possibility): That’d be great! I could make my own lattes!
