    Troy Shondell had a hit single in 1961:

    ♫ This time we’re really breaking up ♫

    ♫ This time we said way too much ♫

    ♫ This times for all the time ♫

    ♫ How about this time. ♫

    ♫ This time there’ll be no goodnight kiss ♫

    ♫ This time is for ever ♫

    ♫ This time I find that I’m ♫

    ♫ Really losing you. ♫

    You can hear it on line.

    It takes a while to find and play.

    If my husband and I were having this fight, he would get three steps away from the door and suddenly run back and hug me, and I’d hug him back, tears might flow, and then the saner conversation would start as we separated off all the things we didn’t actually mean from the real stuff, and worked it out.

    Real love isn’t afraid to fight, because it doesn’t end there. It breaks through.

    Luann I don’t see a ring on your hand nor on Pru’s hand. Maybe Quinn hasn’t gotten to the commitment stage in his dating life. If you love someone set them free… etc.

    Luann, look around you; you are in a college environment with all kinds of other males that could be suitable dating material… take a chance. It is a New Year, time for a makeover on the ‘old’ Luann, try someone else on for size.

    Meanwhile back at the Ranch – Pru is living in Luann’s house! Pru will ply her considerable skills to convince Luann that nothing is wrong. It’s gonna be so painful if Luann looks confused and goes with it. Luann shoulda put her foot down early on. Nancy seemed aware – but for some reason, neither Nancy nor Luann wanted to give Dad a clue…

    Wait, she is jealous of Pru, but yesterday she said the issue with Quill isn’t really Pru, but “everything”. He can’t be there when she is like this, what’s new, he can barely be there at all. Luann should just be mad enough to dump him. Go get jock guy for the night, have fun and then move on. She does need to work on her communication skills. Tell Quill exactly where it’s at. You absolutely need to make educatiom/career a priority. Sure, friends are fantastic. However, when the person you date is an afterthought EVERY time, forget it. What’s that saying? Don’t make someone a priority in your life when you’re only an option in theirs. There was a time when she was a priority in his life. Now he takes her for granted.

    The reason Luann is attracted to Quinn in the first place is that he is a confident young guy who is fun to be around and likes himself without being arrogant. He is not one to take a bunch of hormone induced paranoia from someone who is supposed to be his romantic interest. He will do fine and Luann has made an error for which there may be no turning back.

    I think some people are being a little too premature here. Just because Luann and Quill are having a spat doesn’t mean their relationship is over. If every relationship that had a fight then broke up I would say at least half of the commentators on here wouldn’t even have been born.

    Going into the argument, I was fully on Luann’s side. Now afterwards I see points on both sides. That’s really good writing given the space limitations the script has to deal with. I’m anxious to see how this turns out but I don’t think it’s the end of Luann and Quill. Perhaps through some plot maneuvers, Pru could be the person who helps bring them back together and explains who she is and how she fits into this universe.

    Just no more Col. Zebo!

    For those bad mouthing Quill! ; he tried to engage Luann in a discussion of what was bothering her, but she shut him right down.I wouldn’t stand there and knock my head against that, and neither would any of you. “It’s not (this), it’s not (that). It’s EVERYTHING!”Just what the eff is THAT supposed to mean?He sang her praises to Pru and she doesn’t appreciate that.He tried to encourage her intuitive stage design, did she pursue it further? No.She hasn’t exactly been there in regards his theater passions, which he’s made no secret of.Yet she wants him to interrupt/drop his pursuit of that to be the boy-toy that “completes” her.

    This really doesn’t have much to do about Pru. It has much more to do with Lu and Q. It’s basically Round 3 of the same fight they’ve had twice before – “I want a full-time boyfriend! How dare you spend a large part of your time on activities that don’t include me!!!” Maybe Pru is in fact one of those “activities”, maybe not, but either way this so-called “relationship” is one that’s more nearly a force of habit than a true commitment. It’s time to move on, you two, and that means moving apart. The new semester is about to start, so concentrate on your classes and college friends, and see what all life has to offer outside of prolonging a high-school romance.

    Pru is not a threat. Luann’s insecurity is. And, she’s so terribly unattractive: a little girl’s face on a boyish body. No chemistry being generated there. Bernice has more potential heat. Bring back Rosa, bring back Crystal, put Tiffany back in the shower. Issue an all points bulletin for hormones. Do something.

    1.5 cents. I don’t think this is really any more than one of those fights which sometimes are necessary for couples who care for each other to have to clarify things for them in their relationship. Quill needs to pay more attention to the relationship, and maybe he can grow to do that. Luann needs to control her insecurity and need for affirmation, and focus on moving forward. The presence of Pru is complicating, but i really do think its more likely that is just a friendship, and Pru is kind of prepossessing and perhaps needs a family structure, and I think that is problematic, but l am waiting to see what develops before passing judgement as to what Evans & Co., has in mind.. I think if they can both do what they need the relationship can go forward, and bore some people, or satisfy or dissatisfy other’s notions of relationship development.

    We will see I wager.

    Wow, blatant double standard at work here. If Quill gets criticized for “frowning at her” why should Luann get a free pass for HER attitude? (Also he was not “calling her names”; check his wording again.)And let’s face it: the last thing Luann needs is for Quill to coddle her or placate her. She needs to pull up her Big Girl Pants and take responsibility for her own emotions, instead of expecting people to tiptoe around them. If she has a problem, she can say so like an adult. Expecting Quill to bend over backwards to unravel her feelings is the kind of emotional immaturity that got her in this mess in the first place. Not to mention you’re putting the onus entirely on Quill to make this work. Sorry, but relationships are a two-way street. Luann’s supposed to be a partner in this, not an object.

    Amen, sallymargaret. Men are always complaining about how we women don’t tell them what’s on our minds, but when we actually try to, they either just refuse to listen or brush off our concerns. What they don’t realize is that everything they purport to hate about us—being emotionally insecure, being anxious about our looks, or whatever else they don’t like—are the very things that they’re exacerbating. Of course, they refuse to recognize it. :(

    Quill is also only about 18 or 19 and definitely not very advanced in his ability to deal with relationships, i.e. ones that he is in. Interestingly, he showed a lot of human sensitivity when telling Gunther to treat his mom more kindly (this was months ago when Gunther had just returned from Peru). But when it is a relationship that he is in, Quill is just as lost.

    There are typically three Ls in dating relationships.1. The most superfiscial one is Lust. Granted, it really is a fun addition, but it is not the foundation for a lasting relationship. That is not only in relation to physicality. Some base it upon wealth, position, power, connections, age, etc.2. Love is what most think of and it is absolutely wonderful. Having love in a relationship makes the world sing, BUT…3. Liking is essential. There are people who have very up and down relationships specifically because they love each other but do not like each other. Having spent just shy of 37 years with my marvelous hubby, with over 35 and and a half of those married i can safely say that our deep friendship and true liking for each other have helped us weathenu mber of major hardships life has thrown our way.Luann and Quill no longer like each other much. They have grown in different directions with Quill no longer able to place his relationship with Luann before his career dreams. A relationship, like a conversation or a fight, needs more than one participant. Quill is not participating in any of the three, and the friendship part of their relationship is gone.

    “So you’re just gonna be pissy” is most definitely NOT calling someone a name. Now it’s certainly not the phrasing I’d have used, but there’s a difference between being unnecessarily antagonistic versus name-calling.

    Luann gave up the New York trip for her own reasons, not to cater to another. She was offered a summer teaching job and took it. That’s not on Quill.

    The texting and calling Pru, and the unknown giggling conversation behind closed doors? Yeah, that one IS on Quill. I for one wish she had actually asked him what the hell that was. Though as for the “come and gone as he pleases”, she’s not his truancy officer. Except for the missed appointment, he doesn’t owe her an explanation for where he goes or what he does. Hell, as an exchange student with no friends, she should be encouraging him to broaden his social circle beyond sharing hers. He needs friends of his own rather than just latching onto hers. After all, what happens if or when they break up?**

    Though keep in mind, we are limited as to what we see. Just because we didn’t SEE the two together for the past few months doesn’t mean they weren’t together, much less that he was ignoring her There were other storylines being covered.

    I’m not saying Quill is 100% in the right here. He isn’t. But he’s not in the wrong either. I also think they need to break up, simply because they both suck for each other at this point. Quill isn’t a catch due to his focus on his idiotic career combined with his overall emotional cluelessness/apathy. And Luann isn’t a catch because, well, she’s Luann. To list her Relationship Dealbreakers would make this post even more unwieldy. Anyway, this high school fling needs to be put to sleep already.

    The problem is that since Luann still has the emotional maturity of a 14-year-old, the second she’s single she’ll just find some other guy to completely obsess over so the Luann vs Tiffany love triangle can go on for the 4th or 5th time in a row.Now if Luann could find a way to stop defining herself by whatever guy she’s currently obsessing over, that’d be a story worth reading. And as you said, if she got the hell out of her parents’ house it’d be fantastic. Preferably an apartment with a new supporting cast as roommates (new since Bernice is the worst friend ever, and Tiff would just mean going back to the overdone rivalry. Need new blood.)

    **Yes, we all know what will actually happen when they break up: Quill will disappear, never to be seen or spoken of again. But let’s pretend for a second that this is like real life, where people don’t just vanish the second they stop being useful to us.

    Totally agree!! There was a brief moment when Luann was displaying some artistic talent (drawing and painting), and at that time it WAS a story worth reading. Sadly the regularly featured programming… ha ha.. has returned… i.e. ‘Luann and Quill’ 24/7.

    SPOILER ALERT

    Two other ships in the night, as Luann sails for a familiar port (despite the lack of comfort it provides), but he port is otherwise occupied…

    @Night-Gaunt49“In the sentence , “Luann is being pissy” or “Luann is pissy”, “pissy” is a predicate adjective, or an adjective that is used to predicate the subject of the sentence. It is also called a “subject complement.””.“Quill is modifying the subject, Luann, by describing her in a derogatory manner.”.NightG is closer to right because he isn’t having Quill say what he didn’t say.“So you’re just gonna be pissy?”.By sentence structure, he made it clear it was a choice rather than her essential being.She was choosing to act badly, not that she was bad.

    “Women have mood swings. Men just invade other countries.”.For the women.Seeking one not swinging grouchy.And seeking.And seeking...So you see, all those invasions are YOUR fault.(He said for the humor, not out of hurt feelings at being accused of invading countries and killing innocents.)

    “but at 58 years old also, I’m too young to die…”.You’re never too young to die.That aside, that looks like a fun ride.

    @Meh~tdology“For those bad mouthing Quill! ; he tried to engage Luann in a discussion of what was bothering her, but she shut him right down.I wouldn’t stand there and knock my head against that, and neither would any of you. “It’s not (this), it’s not (that). It’s EVERYTHING!”Just what the eff is THAT supposed to mean?”.I agree with thee.Even though I love Luann with all of my heart that isn’t given to Candorville’s Susan, Arlo’s Janis, or my own beloved dear wife, Patsy, she’s being unreasonable.

    @DavidHuieGreen“The sentence structure is a technicality. It gives him the excuse of the comeback, “I didn’t mean it the way you took it.” ".The words we say shouldn’t be considered mere technicalities.They are our attempts to reach the minds of others.Likewise, we shouldn’t criticize others for what their words could be twisted to say but don’t..“Asking a person whether or not they are going to be “pissy” is dismissive, very much like asking them whether or not they are going to act crazy.”.He waited until she was already doing it.In fact, it caught him by surprise..I on the other hand, often ask certain people who they’re mad at today. Rather than bother to be offended, they always launch into their latest peeve. They are always mad at somebody..

    “He is treating her as being unworthy of having an opinion that matters.”

    .That might be true had he not asked for her problem and had she chosen not to tell him.She acted as if he were too stupid to understand if she gave him an answer...Rather than fight, he left.This was reasonable especially since she had made it clear she didn’t intend to explain what “everything” means..If it really IS everything, there is no hope.If she were exaggerating, there is still hope.When she cools off, she can decide.

    (But, I will point out that you used sentence structure to condemn Quill ~ just the wrong sentence. Use it when advantageous, dismiss it when disadvantageous. Just like a . . .)
