    Safe to say assume if they split up, Dad won’t ask for custody; he may not even ask for visitation rights.

    A dog is more well behaved than Calvin.

    A dog doesn’t have Calvin’s sense of humour.

    If you had a dog, you would not need to dine out to take a break

    Well, since Dad is an SOB, a dog companion might have been appropriate.

    When the parents come and get an earful from Roslyn, all the little monster will get is a talking to by Dad, and sent to bed. The kid wins!!

    Going out to a nice restaurant on a date night is what led to Calvin. Just think, doing it more often could lead to Calvin having a brother, yikes.

    Pffft! If Dad had REALLY wanted a dog that much, he’d have named Calvin ‘Bowser’, instead.

    Mom should order another bottle of the vino and tell Pops to stifle the whining and to enjoy this reprieve from their “prodigy” and go “bottoms up”. Of course she should tell the hostess to arrange for a taxi to take them home as they intent to make a “night” of it.

    Don’t know why Calvin hates Roz as a sitter so much. He seems to have a blast while she’s there.

    Calvin will be hoping space aliens will kidnap him and take him to planet Zork when his folks get home.

    Some obviously think he’s being serious here. I choose to read it as dry humor. There are plenty of times we see his love for his son.

    Calvin’s parents should be happy that mobile phones had not been in widespread use when this was drawn.

    I sympathize with the babysitter and the parents. There’s was a kid like Calvin on a flight sitting right behind me. For the entire 2 hour flight, the kid was in his own world and didn’t shut up once. Obviously off his meds (or needed some) and it drove everyone on the flight NUTS. His mother didn’t say one word to keep him quiet. I think she even had earphones in.

    Look at how the first panel shows how Calvin imagines Stupendous Man, indicating he’s just imagining flying out the front door, when in reality he likely just ran out the door pretty fast.

    Presumably Rosalyn was wise enough to grab the key to the house before chasing after Stupendous Man. Live and learn.
