WHAM! Right in the kisser!
Yeah! You go girl!!
Woo! That’s righ foo’! Don’t mess with my MAN! Er….
I blame the husband! *runs*
He created him for her… and so she takes the creation instead. Ouch. I think I would have just left a long time ago and saved myself the pain the man is in right now.
Wow shes such a bitch
Mmm… I side with her on this one. He ignores her, resists her, and tells her to go play with dolls (essentially). When she shows a preference for the doll he takes it away. When the doll comes back for her (displaying -genuine- affection for her), he tries to destroy it. If this were the modern era, she’d have divorced him LONG ago, I bet…
INDEED. I’d be like “don’t build me a robot that can and will do what I want when I want, treats me better then you do, and then try to be a douche when I like IT better than I like YOU.”
I agree with Firepuppy wholeheartedly. <3
I think it is kind of sad. Scientist is really fighting for her love and it just won’t help.
Hear, hear. He was ridiculously cruel and selfish through most of the comic, I’m glad he learned his lesson.
JERRY! JERRY! JERRY!
HOW WAS HE RIDICULOUSLY CRUEL OR SELFISH! How long do you think it takes to build a robot. He built that for her so she wouldn’t feel lonely while he worked his ass off for her, I fail to understand you people!
HIT ‘IM AGAIN!!!
Right now, I think of both of them as stupid jerks. You heard right; both.
What the hell, both are resorting to violence without even talking it out!
I still feel bad for him.. he tried to do something nice for his wife, to satisfy her.. But she forgot that.. and him and fell in love with Chester. He wasnt an IDEAL husband…but… Hmm lets see how this keeps going..
I find myself cheering for the scientist. Maybe it’s the fact that he had no way of anticipating this, or maybe it’s the fact that even now, he’s still fighting for her.
Darn it, I wish he could build a time machine, go back so he never created Chester, then drop by in the 21st Century for some viagra.
I love her face in the last panel. It’s like “Great, now I have to clean this mess up”.
He wouldn’t BE jealous if he didn’t, in some way, care for her. Yes he has issues, but he still does care for her or he wouldn’t have gotten jealous in the first place.
If he DIDN’T care for her he wouldn’t have cared one iota if she took up with the machine…
I agree “Just an observer”
On the other hand, the husband always ignored her whenever he came home – I don’t blame her for thinking he wouldn’t understand, even if I think she should’ve said something. They’re both at fault here.
However I must say I cheered when she punched him. Why? Because of his reaction on finding out about her and Chester’s emotional relationship. Yelling and getting angry is understandable. Pulling away the key hard enough to make her short of breath, deactivating Chester and taking his heart in front of her, selling him and locking her inside when she protests, completely ignoring her sadness and expecting everything to be like before he made Chester, and then get mad when she rejects him… is not.
The final straw is when Chester appears again. The husband has no qualms whatsoever in killing and/or taking him apart. That is in NO way excusable.
Dammnnnn kick ass girl )) haha
People keep on mentioning how the husband ignored her and didn’t give her any emotional and physical love, which is somewhat true. However, the same can be said for the wife. Since the invention of Chester, the wife had not once given the scientist any attention. She didn’t even bother to try and make love with him and went straight over to Chester. Everyone seems so quick to blame the scientist, when he’s a victim too.
People need to get off their high horse and see that both characters are in the wrong.
Not true, wat. She came to him after her first time with chester, dressed up and everything, and he still paid her no mind. He wanted her there but was not willing to give her what she needed. She didn’t need a dildo, she needed a partner.
She cares more about a walking dildo than her husband…………….thats messed up
YEAH PRISCILLA!! KICK HIS ASS!!
The scientist is not fighting for her. He’s fighting for himself. He’s so worried about having her that he doesn’t care how she feels about it. He’s objectifying her, like she’s HIS and no one else’s, but he doesn’t have the common courtesy to treat her like she needs to be treated.
She wanted him. He turned her away repeatedly. He decided, “I don’t want to deal with everything in a relationship, so the parts I don’t like, I’ll shirk off to some robot I built so I don’t have to deal with it”. That’s not love. He doesn’t love her, really. He just wanted her and married her and expected her to sacrifice everything for him.
