Dark shadows equal drama!
What? They do. THAT WAS A SERIOUS STATEMENT. LOOK AT THESE BOLD LETTERS.
I guess Elliot's being a little presumptious that Ellen has effectively lost Sarah as a girlfriend. I mean, she did, but they didn't exactly talk about it. What if Sarah thought they could work something out? I dunno. Probably should've asked about it.
He probably knows she wouldn't want to, but it's sorta like when someone generally doesn't like pizza and you're about to order some. You still ASK. It's polite! And maybe they'll get bread or something. I'm not sure how exactly ordering side dishes would fit into this analogy, and it's probably better not to think too much about it.
I would yell at Elliot for saying "hell no" in regard to Susan giving someone helpful, sage advice in a time of need, but at this point in the comic... Yeah, I wouldn't trust Susan with this, either. Sorry, Susan! That's what you get for calling Nanase the s-word!
