Well played, Nil!
So what is next?? Doing naughty things at IKEA and hoping nobody sees you? LOL
Waaaaaait . . . wasn’t this the plot of an old SIMPSONS episode?
The gulf between what she says and does
End of arc.
Like turning a switch on and off.
whatever turns your crank Bern!
She’s a whole bunch of looney. Run, Nils….you have you own issues.
You could do a lot worse, bro.
For one thing, You got a gal that eventually gets around to romance.
And she’s not:
1) Calling all the shots.
2) Pushing you around.
3) Accusing you of cheating.
4) Uploading every single second on social media.
5) And abandoning you in some parking lot.
At least, Not Yet. ;-)
Not enough here for another whole week unless the ice breaks.
Nil is confirming Pavlov’s results.
Maybe in panel 4 Bernice is just playing along with Nil’s game and pretending to be excited on account of him pretending to hear someone at the front door.
And maybe in panel 3 Nil isn’t pretending.
I called it yesterday!
1. The Big Reveal! Berni is turned on by elusive kissing.
2. Nil speaks in regular sentences.
Well—Nil now knows what pushes HER buttons!!
Betcha he uses it to his advantage!!
Yup! That’s it!
It’s usually guys who want to do it where they might get caught. That’s been my experience a few times.
Boom. Nailed it, Nil. Now what is the medical term for this sort of thing. I know there’s gotta be at least one…..
Time to move back home Bernice.
Is that the first time I ever saw him smile? Really smile?
Yep, just like I thought….
How many people, besides myself, have told you so, Bern is freaky, about getting caught.
SQUIRREL!!! No, wait, that’s for Puddles.
Ludicrous, nonsensical, preposterous, ridiculous, absurd and farcical storyline twist?
Nil is homing in on it. He just has to envision the right scenario! 8^ )
Nil is… SMILING!!! This situation amuses him and he seems to love Bernice even more than before ♡! Bernice can’t deny it, even if she doesn’t like her kink, it’s a part of her and Nil will surely use this knowledge for the good of both. I love this couple!
Well, good for Nil for finally figuring it out, because I never saw that coming. Now, things a finally beginning to make sense. Why all the sneaking around when they were both adults and neither one was cheating on someone? No we know. And I have to give Nil a lot of credit for putting up with Benice this long.
Just waiting for the reaction when the Degroots encounter bare buns on their couch! Perhaps they’ll see a side of Bernice they never really noticed.
Nil, you rogue.
But Bernice keeps cancelling the make out sessions whenever someone “catches” them making out. I don’t know how this would be sustainable. If they don’t actually go to her room and lock the door and the windows, they’re going nowhere! Even then it would stop her because the walls are so thin. Fascinating. Always a way to keep the characters chaste.
Bernice loves a man who can really set the mood and build suspense.
Well. this throws the ‘Nil is grooming her’ theory out the window. If he was, it is unlikely he would reveal his M.O.
He was proving a point. She has a trigger.
Good grief. Remember actually having a conversation at his art show? Developing a relationship through conversation and shared experiences. Museum, art show, a movie or play, study for classes together, go bowling …. Is this all there is?
This is the first time Nil has ever smiled!
Panel 1: A rare smile (or at least half-smile) from Nil.
Meanwhile, Puddles has escaped from the house and run off again…
Back to the park, then.
He JUST figured that out.
I have a co-worker who named his daughters Lisa & Maggie.
Looks like I guessed wrong about today’s installment; I thought they’d get caught. A couple other folks got it right, though … :-)
How far will Bernice go if Nil says he hears somebody coming? Did she put on her best bra and panty set? (Does she even own one? Of, course, she could borrow Luann’s, and, ask forgiveness later.)
Quick! Put your head down! I think someone’s coming! All right, It was me…
If I was Nil and had the hots for a girl, I’d invite her to my home territory. No distractions!
She’s like Louise Lasser in that one segment of “Everything You Always Wanted To Know About Sex But Were Afraid To Ask”.
If Bernice needs danger just tell her that you forgot to pick up protection.
I hope this story is over. This weirdo Nil operating Bernice like a robot is really disgusting. The implication is, she would be this way with anyone who provided a “risk” factor. There’s no real human connection anymore.
he has found the button and he is pushing it.
Oh, an adrenaline junkie!
Hope this is the end of this story. Now how about a boyfriend for Luann, Tiffany or even Puddles? Get off Bernice and her idiosyncrasies.
Once a weakness is known
It can be exploited
For benefits your own
Take a Walk on the Wild Side where the women of color go…
Aha! It might be for real this time! Wonder who will catch them or will it be a new arc next week?Bernice needs counseling. Might be her upbringing, but she doesn’t seem to know what love is.
I haven’t watched the Simpsons in years, except for the short clips on YouTube, but since they got woke and got rid of APU, and the like, IS it really worth watching.I also like the realistic portrayal of law enforcement as shown by Chief Wiggim.
“Hello officer, sorry about the steamed up car windows”
FINALLY! A character with an interesting quirk – she’s got a kink. Kinky! Kinkity! Kink, kink! “Back Door!”
I can’t wait until the strip shows them shopping at a fetish shop.
Nil just now figured this out? We saw it when they were together 2 dates ago. Which was several months ago in comic time.
Having a quirk like this does NOT make Bernice any more interesting or likable. She just seems more pathetic to me. She can’t even admit this about herself.
At least Nil finally figured out what turns Bernice on. Took him long enough.
As I said before, gonna make for an interesting wedding night if Brainless Bernice ever gets married.
And this is the woman who had the nerve to get upset with Gunth and Bets for getting all cuddly at her study hall.
Then again, that’s typical Bernice. She sanctimoniously condemns other people for their actions, but when SHE does the same thing, it’s fine.
Having reached that likely conclusion, Nel, I think all you have to do is whisper “Is there someone behind this sofa?” and you’ll be making the beast with two backs in an instant.
Good morning, Walmart shoppers. leather clothing, whips and handcuffs are 40% off at pillar 4 for the next 10 minutes.
Interesting experiment in genetics here…when they have kids….which will be soon if they keep this up and ain’t careful….it would be a hoot if they turned out having jet black brunette hair or a redhead or natural blond….since both of them have brown hair.
Nancy walking in.
“My middle name is Danger. Bernice ‘Danger’ Halper.”
Now that Nil knows what makes Berns nips hard, he all so knows she has an easy out, oh some ones here.
And she was supposed to be the smart one.
Keep the danger coming, says Nil.
Bernice’s “I require the risk of getting caught” kink wouldn’t be so bad except that she immediately shuts down if she even thinks someone might actually be watching, as we’ve already seen. So Nil only has the tiniest sliver of area to work within, and even that’s assuming Bernice doesn’t have a bunch of hang-ups about the sexual act itself, which is pretty damn unlikely.
Get out now, Nil; this juice ain’t worth the squeeze.
Like I said, Nil understands this a lot better than I did at his age
I had a girlfriend like that once. We had a lot of fun.
If Bernice likes the danger, then why didn’t she like making out in public in the park? I guess it’s so she will be found out by the family, which seems contrived.
She’s secretly an adrenaline junkie. Here’s the problem: Bernice FREAKED when her and Nill got caught just kissing. How would Bernice react if they got caught exchanging “v-cards?”
Didn’t see if anyone mentioned this was the plot of the Italian segment of Everything You Ever Wanted to Know About Sex But Were Afraid To Ask.
Ugh. Are the marrieds the only ones with a normal relationship?
Bernice has a wild side!
Nil has correctly assessed crazed Bernie. Danger heats her engine!
If I was Pyro I would say I hear 15 cars full of church ladies. She’d probably rip her clothes off!
Now everybody’s taking credit for figuring out the obvious story theme of this arc. Oh well.
Pushin the buttons…lol (｡•̀ᴗ-)
Psych major, analyze thyself.
Wonder how she’ll react when he says “back door”.
This made me laugh :-)
um, you do realize that when someone who has glasses start kissing, they normally remove their glasses in order to keep them from getting damage or smeared…just a suggestion.
