I’m pretty sure he wouldn’t even kill a spider for you, Tilly, what makes you think he’ll go out to check if a burglar is there?

Burglar: "Stop bickering, I'm trying to work here!"

This reminds me of a Jeff Foxworthy joke. He said "what's up with a guy taking a baseball bat to go investigate a sound in the dark? Are we expecting to find a burglar with a ball or what?!"

Honestly I was raised to let a burglar take what they want, and not put yourself in danger, that's what contents insurance is for
But that's less funny lol

Well, living in the American South, usually Dad would go and check things...with a rifle. Just remember, they can't prosecute them if they're dead! :P

I could have thrown everyone off by having Jon grab a rifle from under his bed without a word

A cute moment for sure about two seconds before the first panel. Jon must be on cloud nine when he's not on the hot seat.

Just let the poor boy sleep and not be responsible for anything

Whose flat is it, to begin with?

It's Jon's flat - I don't show his bedroom often enough for that to be obvious right away, admittedly

It’s just a squirrel.

...I think that would scare Jon more than if it were a burglar lol

This, right here is the moment the wheels start to come off: Tilly finally realizes Jon's "bad boy" tendencies are mostly limited to inciting and receiving physical assaults, with the odd spot of mostly-ineffectual struggle when Seth kicks his arse.

Also, it's probably Anna stealing their booze again. It would be fair to say she's dangerous to anyone who expects her to be sane and reasonable, but does she really count as a burglar when Seth's given her a key? A looter perhaps, but without the breaking it's not break and enter. Also, Tilly's in a lot more danger from her stupid mouth around her than from anything Anna plans to do, so she should just chill.

Well, before this she didn't know Jon well enough to know he's as harmless as a swarm of shit flies: He'll get his insides on you when * he incites you to sufficient violence to break his skin.

*Since he's managed to motivate Ty to violence this is definitely a matter of, "when," more than, "if," for anyone who spends enough time around him.

Jon's a bad boy only in that he's bad... just generally bad at stuff.

Arguably one big thing Jon and Tilly both have in common is their huge mouths being the thing that's most likely to land them in trouble.

Hmmm... so you're saying that they're a closer match than I originally thought? After the Guy Fawkes arc that's unexpectedly believable. On the other hand, two people whose mouths get them in trouble sounds like a recipe for a legendary breakup fight that makes both of them look bad.

Yeah as I was typing that I was thinking that normally if you've got one person with a huge stupid mouth, their partner should probably balance that out, not double it
