Jeff: Yes, folks, Elle never drinks caffeine. It’s taken the past 4 or 5 strips, but I finally got that joke in. Funny, huh? 🙂

Also, bonus points to the first person who correctly identifies the movie quote in today’s strip…

Jeremy: Jeff surprised even me with Elle’s caffeine avoidance.  It makes it so much more fun when Jeff sneaks elements into the strip that I don’t expect.  Yes, we discuss and brainstorm a lot about general character elements, story arcs, etc., in the strip together, but each new script is a surprise to me.  Some bigger than others.  And Jeff really got me with Elle not partaking of caffeine.

Dave Moulton wanted one of those cookies in the last strip (as evidenced by his comments), and now I want one too.  Yes, I want a cartoon cookie.
