Peggy must be pretty buff :D And Maura overcompetes again. And Gary is still knocked out. Peggy also seems to have butt dimples.

Ok, didnt see it going that direction.

Well, glad to see that the strip continues to treat concussion with the seriousness that it deserves. And that buttocks can get past the refined moral senses of the advertisers (especially given the quality of the view therefore accorded). And that Maura's competitive instincts remain undimmed. And that the Ma3-Montreal ambulance service respects the city's prevalence of lesbianism or female bisexuality.

Also - is that Peggy's ex Jim there? The tags don't say so, but it could be, I think.

Reminds me of the time when a woman in my building opened the door to her apartment to say something to her hubby who was heading to the elevator, not realising she was completely naked and I was in the hallway!

I briefly saw the full frontal of a Goddess before she said "oops!" and closed the door! :p

Spidrift, I think you're right! It does look like Jim!

Man, I really don't see it. Hair's shaded different, face looks different, and while some time has passed, it's hard for me to imagine Jim reacting so quietly to encountering his naked ex-fiancee in the exact same place he last saw his ex-fiancee naked, when she was getting eaten out by a woman. This is just a guy who knows her from work.

Well, the hair shading could be down to lighting conditions, the face doesn't look that different to me (though my brain seems to be wired badly for facial recognition), the heavy eyebrows look kind of similar, and the reaction could be a first-split-second "whuh?"

But I'm not here to argue with the comic's editor. So it isn't Jim. Kind of a shame; I do sometimes wonder what happened to the poor sod.

Forgetting clean clothes I understand, but why would there be no towels in there to wear?

I know a number of nurses personally (both male and female), and all of them are actually pretty buff. They tell me it comes with the job because it often involves trying to re-position people in beds who aren't capable of moving themselves, and people are heavy.

While I am glad to see the comic being realistic and appropriate about head trauma, I would like to point out that real EMTs tend to be a bit more jaded and have seen it all.

That is a difficult argument to find fault with. I can only surmise that Peggy was a little off put by Maura's competitiveness and was trying to give Gary & her some space, and then she just proceeded with her shower. Plus she sounded like she really wanted to take that shower, enough to punctuate it with having to say she was going to be getting naked. Lastly, she's never been painted as a brilliant or meticulous woman; she's human, albeit a nurse who understands proper procedures. She's a human who has had sexual relations with her two roommates and obviously feels quite comfortable in her current living arrangement. So, a quick nude jaunt isn't out of the question. Voila.

I'm just curious how she did not hear the paramedics enter the premises. They are traditionally noisy on entry and loud investigating the condition of the person they are caring for. And since it is well established that the walls in the apartment are paper thin, did Peggy completely zone out? While she was actually under the shower head nozzle? Sure, the water could have muted their entry. But while she was drying off? Meh; I have to suspend my belief there for the power of the story (and Peggy's butt, of course).

As to the one paramedic being her ex, maybe. Time has gone by so his hair style might have changed up a bit. The strip you referenced had his hair a little mussed up; could have been due to stress of breaking up with Peggy... could have be Loreal... but there is a similarity. I'm inclined to think it is not her ex, just a coworker. Hopefully the two paramedics will show some good taste and not give Peggy a rash over this (although I am really hoping we can get EMT Nosebleed to appear in the strip more).

Maura: stop it. Just. Stop it. You're wearing a shirt covering your abs. No one knows you're flexing. And with Gary unconscious, no one cares. It's seriously bordering on unhealthy levels of insecurity, and very much out of place considering the seriousness of the situation. Yes, I know it drives home the comedic punchline. But, it makes Maura out to be uncaring about the predicament she's put Gary into. Truce, Maura. Truce.
