- What Elliot first says in response to seeing Tedd as a girl (that's not a joke about comedic eye-popping). Will also be repeated next comic.

- Grace wavy hair intensifies

"My mistake. It was was actually his 'Grace and Elliot need to have a moment alone' meow."

I considered many ways to contrive Elliot and Grace having a moment alone to talk about this, and like many of life's questions, the answer was a demanding cat. Granted, there are plenty of reasons Tedd might have to leave the basement for a moment, but a one panel mention of a meowing cat was CLEARLY the best option.

As for the topic of this conversation, I've considered this to be something of the elephant in the room, but I haven't actually seen anyone mention it, so I'm not sure. On the other hand, I'm pretty sure the entire point of that expression is that nobody wants to address the elephant, so maybe it is the elephant?

There may or may not be an elephant in this comic.
