Yes stop asking questions because it could lead to one involving said man at the urinal and an ex he met in there.

She looks almost Cerise-like there

Ruby doth protest too much. Being Rudy got her into a situation where she could spy on men in the restroom. She knows she shouldn't be doing that and doesn't hence the reason she wants to abandon the disguise completely and while that is the mature decision it doesn't resolve her sexual needs which she has, but refuses to acknowledge.

Oh dear, looks like Ruby is stuck in an autoconfession loop! She is delivering successive output despite lack of input! Reset! Reset! =))

Well... that could have been worse, for Ruby I mean.

Dillon is trying to be practical here and I agree with him.

You ARE being judged, Ruby, and most HARSHLY indeed!

Mainly by yourself.

Yes. Yes she is. :x

I wouldn't have expected for Dillon to be the straight man, even less having him doing it without saying a word. :))
And he's totally right. Ruby will need Rudy in the future, the iron laws of comedy say so.

Honestly, the restroom incident was the least of the benefits for Ruby. The confidence boost she got from that disguise is why Dillon is, for once, right. She can see images of naked men, or even the real thing, any number of ways, if she wants.

I'm not sure that "practical" is quite the word I'd use, but yes, he is right. I assume he noticed the confidence boost, and he gets points for that.(I hope that he's not just looking to use Rudy as a companion on more of his own idiot schemes.)

Of course. Someone like Ruby will always be her own harshest critic. It's kind of tough, but it's also why Ruby will usually succeed at anything she really wants to get right.

It's not terribly unusual in real life, but I think that it makes Ruby unique in the Ma3 universe.

Incidentally, nobody has commented on Ruby's unwillingness to let Amber see or know about Rudy. She still doesn't understand it herself... That's a messed-up sibling relationship; Amber doesn't know how to communicate with Ruby, and Ruby is terrified of losing her dignity in front of Amber - probably because she feels it's all she's got to give her any advantage over her beautiful, popular, parentally-favoured big sister.

Oh, and here's a thought; if Gary and Amber start - gasp - talking (once their current alternate form of communication is done for now), what are the odds on Amber mentioning her worries about the skeevy-looking guy in a baseball cap who's hanging around with their mutual friend Dillon, and Gary saying "What, the woman in disguise?"

The Beard of Evil. It allows her to give free play to her dark side. Of which she has just enough to be interesting.

By the way, this is strip #145, and the Kickstarter plans confirmed that the comic will run in volumes of 150 strips, much like Ma3. So we can probably expect some kind of scene break soon - perhaps just when these two hit the sack (independently - I can't see Ruby providing the Zii/Amber service of comforting Dillon, no matter how much he whinges, and she's damn well earned a bed to herself for the night). Pulling the other Ma3 trick and making the last strip echo #1 somehow would be a bonus accomplishment.
