"One heaping order of Sunshine coming right."

And I wonder what's been happening to Georgette to cause he to be so wound up? Aside from the Tina Special.

At first i thought Tina was depending on Monica's Jaguar-hearing...

She's still wearing a socially acceptable amount of clothing, and in the right places. Yep, it's a good landing.

Heh... yup... "Dial M for Monica!" is playing in the Mucho Mocha Cinema.

She really does do an impressive riff on the old Johnny Storm number, too... "[Astral] Flame On!"

I believe we need to establish some Jag-Con code levels for these summons.
You know, level One or Yellow for poit to the basement and walk up the stairs like normal, level Two or Orange for poit to the washroom enter alertly, level Three or RED for poit to center of the room with the fangs out, and level Four or Spotted for poit in flaming.

...and she's on her feet!

If her landing from the portal-cloth pickup hadn't been a tad less than perfect, i'd figure that the more she thinks about getting it right, the less likely she is to do so.

This looks like it could get kinda squirrely... I said the other day that it appeared that Georgette might be attracted to Monica... Think about it... Tina is pulling EVERYTHING but the kitchen sink out of Georgie-girl including the need for Monica... Now this... There is a lingering niggling doubt in my mind that somehow Mon and Georgie are related... touched off by Tina's remarks about the plane crash and Georgette's sister covered in blood but not all of it being hers... Then Tina mentions Georgette was looking for her ( I assumed Tina was referring to the sister) and that she needed... Sunshine, she needed Monica... I kind of thought this was hinting that Monica was Georgette's sister, but I don't think that's the case. Georgette's sister is running the pub if I remember correctly and we've never heard of such a traumatic plane crash in Monica's past. Unless Georgette has more than one sister, but still... Georgette would know that Monica was her sister and would have said something.

The reaction to Monica showing up can be taken a few different ways... a. Shock and Awe for Monica showing up the way she did. b. The last time Georgette saw Monica was at the Mucho Mocha. It seems plausible it would be he first place she would consciously or sub-consciously start looking for Monica. in this case, it refers back to a. c. Georgette sub-consciously is attracted to Monica and is beginning to realize it. Seeing Monica appear as she did immediately after having her need for Monica so astutely ripped from her sub-conscious by Tina has to have given Georgette a serious case of... hero-worship seems too small for what we're seeing here I think... but it seems like a good start...

Oh, and d. IT's FRICKIN' FRIDAY!!!! AAAAAAAGH!!!!! We won't get to see hoe this plays out till Monday!!!

Probably the last person Mon was expecting to see; she looks as stunned as 'Jet.

Now is it love or need for Monica? It's hard to tell from Georgettes response. Need because Monica may be the only one who ever accepted her as herself and didn't try and get something out of her. They were also alike in eating habits and somewhat in personality. It could be love for a relative, or it could be she really is in love with Monica, or her image on Monica. Now we have to wait to find out.
Ambush questions are fun. Watching the mental impact of them as they distort, or crumble, opinions based on faulty logic.

Monica poits in ready for a battle, covered with astral fire, glowing eyes, etc. Georgette response is opposite of rational expectations (i.e. full freakout). Hold on to your hats folks, we are heading down the rabbit hole again, and this one looks to be weird!

All these rabbit holes are weird, why should this one be any different?

Odd..

I don't understand what's going on here. The blushing of Georgette looks more like someone that is suddenly confronted with his/her crush, than someone just relieved, or something.

Or is Georgette just flustered, because she réally admires M as one of the people she knóws that isn't interested in her status as Model/celebrity? Or as someone she looks up to?

I can't make head or tails from this.
but, why 42?
