Okay, so she thinks he understands her but he’s really just relying on Cliff Notes, so she leaves him? Is that it?

  1. Given the interrupted word balloon and the fact that the Cliffs Notes are falling out of his pants, I think there’s an implication that he was attempting to make himself look bigger in a certain area. One traditionally enhanced with a sock.


  2. “She has a cover?”

    Not much of one in the second panel….. Hey! They should have worked in dust jacket/covers into the joke!


  3. I thought Cliff’s Notes and comparable quickie study aids were also sometimes known as “trots,” and was going to make a joke about him being “hot to trot,” but in checking I find the “trot” usage I remember (which seems pretty uncommon anyway) seems to be applied only to literal translations of foreign-language texts. I . . . suppose . . . that could work as an explanation of “translation” of worldviews between female and male, but I was too far down the rabbithole for a weak pun, so I gave up.

    On the other hand, I just said “quickie.” Hyuk hyuk hyuk.
