…or even empathy? As Doc shows off using his big words, he anticipates the questions coming from (at least) Rusty and points out that the 5-dollar word coming out of Doc’s mouth , Chiropterologist, means that he studies bats…
Classic scene in Panel one… In fact I am sure I have seen this exact configuration before– with Cherry in slight repose on the arm of the log chair, Mark hunched over, in his naturalist khaki ensemble, fire blazing and Rusty looking on from a relatively distant corner of the shot… Andy asleep and farting in front of the hearth. Warm days (recall the shirtless scenes from earlier) must give way to chilly nights in the Georgia Mountains.
Looks like Ol’ Doc has gone in for Just for Men- Touch of Gray on the Ol’ eyebrows… a rather striking look, I must say.
Still confused, unless there are multiple Cuevas de Los Muertos… seems the one we are interested in is in Texas… Good to know that Mark will be able to stay in the lower 48 and avoid international waters… at least for now.
