    Ist das nicht ein cumberbund?Ja das ist ein cumberbund! – When they get there, Quill better make sure that thing is safe… he’d be best to put it in the hat, coat and cumberbund check room….

    I “think” that Quill has rented a tux, I’m just not sure about his shirt… And, since Gunther is going to wear the tux that he made, I am sure Quill would not choose to be different…Especially since Luann Specifically asked him to wear one (it seems to me his manners will require him to follow through…). ;)

    I only know the answer to this because my mom and sisters all sewed:

    4. You pin the hem to the correct length, then sew it. The pins make sure the hem stays straight and even while you’re sewing.

    1. Quill and Gunther have been living together for awhile, so how is it possible that Gunther has been working on a tuxedo for 2 months and Quill has not noticed?^As much time as Gunther probably spends in his “haberdasher’s cave”, and as much as he “tinkers with tailoring”, I’m sure that Quill probably passed off anything he was doing as one of those other kinds of projects… – Plus, maybe he just got to get off of the truck… who knows how long TJ left him running the van?….

    1. The sewing machine is NOT in the bedroom!!!! Men are not the observant!! (e.g. women’s hair cuts)

    2. You ALWAYS pin a pair up trousers up with straight pins first THEN hem then….sometimes by hand to hide the thread!

    3. GOOGLE

    4. see answer #2

    5. it’s a freakin comic strip

    6. he’s not dressed yet, he’s still hemming his trousers

    7. she loves Gunther and will think Quill is awesome for supporting his friend

    8. Quill is wearing a tux….just doesn’t have the jacket on yet!

    You just need more understanding of Gunther Originals.Once they become fashionable, everyone will want one.Consider all the styles folks once proudly wore and which their children now mock.They always looked silly, just fashionable.“The emperor has no clothes! Well, he HAS them but . . . "

    " Let him get the girl ( Rosa in this case) and go off into the sunset."^That would make “plan C” become one of those significant moments that you don’t know which way it’s gonna fall, as it has a “double false lead”… if his scholarship to Moony was a “red herring”, that would prove to be a really good way to rope everyone in and have him do what many would think he wouldn’t have done… that would put a “neat bow” on the character and have it become that suddenly his “glands kicked in”. One thing with that, though, people will still “question” that route (with bringing up plausibility/disbelief issues), but if that’s the case, nothing anyone can do, if he and Rosa bust the ol’ Roy and Dale song….
