It's difficult to convey exactly how I intended Elliot to say "no" in that first panel, but if you're imagining something unconvincing, we're close enough to the same page.
This marks the page where I decided I wanted Liz's eyelashes to sort of match the back of her hair in pointyness.
I don't know why I thought the last panel should be in silhouette, but it felt right for some reason. That's happened before with such panels, and it makes me suspect there's some dude in my brain who likes silhouettes and will just occasionally insist upon them to my subconscious.
That's a normal thing to suspect, right?
