    Man, that was great. I loved Thog's line. I had to read through it just to make sure it made sense, and it does .

    Poor, poor Elan.

    Poor Elan :( How... well, sort of plaintive, almost pathetic. Snif.

    Elan's concern over Haley seemed a little forced but Thog's Nailing Nale spiel was hilarious lol.

    Maybe this is how the gift-horse thing comes out: Elan's thinking back to his adventures makes him understand Haley's feelings for him.

    Or not.

    I have one word for you Rich Burlew:

    BWAHAHAHAHAHAHA*snort*HAHAHAHAHAHA!

    PS: My mother, who I recently got into OotS and who came over to see what had paralyzed me with laughter, wants to know how many cups of coffee it took to write Thog's line about Nale Nailing Not-Nale. (I had to show it to her because that's what made me laugh out loud.)

    Also, I think Elan just figured out how he feels for Haley.

    Maybe this one should have been called "The right to remain silent. Anything you say can and will be used against you in a court of law."

    I liked this one, but because I am otherwise occupied I can't rate it yet.

    Thog exposition makes my head hurt. So would this qualify as "Elan is smart" evidence or "Elan is dumb" evidence? Sort of a toss-up IMO.

    Awww..... Elan finally realizes that he has feelings for Haley. Or at least, he feels differently than he normally feels about the rest of the Order.

    I do believe that this is the single best comic to date. Hilarious, tense, heartbreaking, and heartwarming all at once. And it's a friggin' STICK FIGURE COMIC!

    Does the gotee impart knowledge and/or wisdom? because ever since he lost it it seems like Nale has been acting stupider, and in this comic Elan seems to be acting smarter than normal.


    And also HOLY CRAP! Is Elan starting to realise he loves Haley?

    *sniff, sniff* Poor Elan. That's so poignant, especially the way the last line was delivered - no exclamation marks, all-caps, etc.

    Damn, you could get a migraine from reading that speech of Thog's, if you werent laughing so hard. Poor Elan, it was a nice touch that he didnt seem at all concerned for his welfare, only worried about two things: One, that the imprisonment was based on a wrong premise, and two, his teammates. Interesting how he seemed so focused on Haley, he's always been almost totally oblivious to the fact that she loves him. I say almost because if you remember the new years eve strip, when Haley's inner loathing was screaming at her to just make out with him, he was standing there....focusng on her, almost like he was waiting for something. I think it would be hilarious if Elan used Thog's idiocy to convince him that he IS Nale, and help him escape.

    Oh, and, as an added touch, Thog's inability to use capitalization makes his speech there especially mind-bending.

    Hahaa, nice one. not-nale :D Made my day

    So about Elan and Haley. I remember that strip, where Haley was atempting to pick a prison lock in Azure city and Elan heped her, by saying that he trusts in her. So may be it has some relation for Elan understanding Haley`s feelings.

    Amazing... Thog says all that thing without stuttering, and Elan realizes Haley holds a special place in his heart... Now this is a cliffhanger!

    Giant: Was the double length the 75% chance of an extra cominc, or was this a normal schedule, and we still have that 75%? Just curious...

    Elan's "Can anyone ELSE hear me??" reminded me of Roy's clarification in Strip 342. Of course, Roy had more detail.

    I just had to register after lurking for about a year.
    Once I re-read thog's speech slower it made so much sense that I burst out laughing. It's too bad that guard is as slow as I was when I first read it, as I was completely confused and kind of skimmed it.

    Ya. This was definitely a good strip.

    I can't help, but wonder if Elan has finally realized that Haley likes him, but I don't see why he would realize this now as opposed to any other time. It seems just a bit "off" for the "Elan finally realized" theory to work.
