Way to go, Chuck! There you happen to encounter some of the not-all-that-common girls who would actually appreciate a thorough knowledge of Star Wars quotes, and you manage to mess it up.
And we know that Chuck should know his Star Wars quotes, because he likes to call Jason “his young Padawan”. By the way, I wonder what other five episodes of Top Gun would have looked like. Wouldn’t it be great to have prequels set on aircraft carriers in the Pacific during World War II?
Looks like Julio’s and Alex’s prank has backfired! They probably didn’t think through what would happen if you’d give Chuck’s ego another boost. It might just end up exploding!
I think one thing that makes a good pilot, is the ability to process new and unexpected information quickly.
I would say that Chuck doesn’t always stumble with women. He only seems to do so when there’s the slightest hint of positive feedback!
Chuck sure knows how to make an entrance, doesn’t he! Thanks again Alasdair for the idea for this strip!
Seems Julio has a lot of practice keeping a straight face. No doubt a skill that is important for a mechanic working at Roost Air!
Another proof that honesty is the best policy. Honesty is also my personal policy, not just because I don’t like lying to people, but because I am convinced that the negative long-term effects usually outweigh a short-term gain, and that by avoiding misunderstandings, being honest saves everybody’s time.
The only time when I bend the truth is when I feel I would really hurt somebody’s feelings. And even then, I try to strike a balance and be as honest as possible. Honesty might not always be polite, but it sure shows more respect towards a person.
Another important reason I don’t like is that I am not smart enough to keep my stories straight.
I wonder if Chuck ever heard of the saying “If you find yourself in a hole, stop digging.” It would appear not. And I also wonder if, when Alex is calling him not the sharpest tool, if she wants to imply that he is a tool though.
Maybe the reason Chuck has such a big mouth is that he always puts his foot in it somehow? This slip is almost as bad as unintentionally stealing a poor guys private robe in the sauna, for instance. Don’t ask me why that popped in my mind just now …
Another day, another try! But I’m sure that Julio is spot on. After going on maintenance flights with Chuck more than once, he is probably the most qualified person to judge the excitement level on the seat next to Chuck.
