I never thought that I'd feel sorry for Hilary but this arc is achieving that. I'm beginning to get the impression that 'Gabby' was a youthful indiscretion and that she's spent most of her adult life trying to escape it. That doesn't excuse her for being a bitch but it does make running into one of Gabby's biggest fans that much more unpleasant for her.
This strip is sold on that last panel. As a 'Net geek, Pip probably doesn't really understand even the basic theory of face-to-face social and business interactions anymore. Either Hilary is going to have to teach him how (assuming that she knows - her last job was marketing, after all) or the two of them need to set up a web store pronto!
Heeeyyy! That might be their big chance! Create a thift web store! Donate or buy on-line rather than in person! New idea that changes the paradigm! The IPO might make them both millionaires!
