Rose: Look, I’m sorry I didn’t just come to you directly. I’ve never had to do this before. But you’re bad for me, and I’m not the person you need right now either.
Rose: There’s nothing here for us anymore.

Trevor: Huh?
Rose: I’m breaking up with you.

Trevor: …We can still fuck, right?
Rose (walking away): No!

Trevor: That’s okay. I’m more REAL than most people can handle.

  2. Ryman says:

    The sad part is, he’s right. He is more real then people can handle.

    Even more real then this first.

  3. And that was the last time he ever felt a woman’s touch.

  4. Ryman says:

    Ninja’d for the win! Unless, of course, first goes to the person that called it.

  5. Frey says:

    Oh the denial is strong with this one

  6. RotSman says:

    The last panel is a clear indicator of why he’s “bad for her.” It’s not The Shocker without “and one in the stink.”

  7. Dr. wonderful says:

    Bah, Five dollar bet he going to be crying behind the picnic table.

  8. Minty says:

    Odd, on that last line he sounded like Fry in my head.

  9. Austin Powers (Im serious thats my name) says:

    Hey Nick just wondering…would you mind too much if I broke the fourth wall and hit him in the face with a chair?

  10. RowdyZergmanno2 says:

    I very much enjoy Futurama, and Bender…….. but mostly Bender

  11. Ghost says:

    I would say he does not understand the concept of “breaking up”, but I know several people who continued in that kind of relationship. They never spoke to each other except to arrange their next booty call.

  12. not this time says:

    Lack of boobies… make me sad.


  13. Ixaplix says:

    I dunno, I kinda imagine Trevor acting like this is no big deal, then getting wasted from all the alcohol around, then whilst drunk, Arne tries getting him together with Alex. But that is just something I would find humorous for a drunken Trevor, at the urging of Arne, try to hit on Alex, and then Alex turning him down (I wouldn’t wish a Trevor on anybody) only to have Trevor so shattered he starts sobbing in the jello pool. Just my two bits.

    • Jim says:

      Who wants to bet, “Momma” gets some???

      SHE’D be “happy” – Trev “keeps it in the “family” and Rose gets to talk NATE into getting together again, moving in with HIM!

  14. Chaos says:

    Alrighty, glad that’s said and done! Now all we need to worry about is Tracy!

    ……Crap! We still need to worry about Tracy!

  15. iggzy says:

    He could have a great future in reality TV with that attitude

  16. Brendan T says:

    It’s weird. Now that we’re headed toward the big conclusion, I find myself almost hoping for a Chasing Amy situation, wherein everyone comes out of it wiser if not together.

    And honestly, it’s starting to feel like Rose and Nate aren’t really good for each other either.

    I’m really kinda anxious to see how this story’s going to wrap up.

  17. Timtombimbomb says:

    Man, he keeps achieving greater and greater levels of toolishness.

  18. The Caucasian Guy says:

    am I the only one who thought he sounded like something off the jersey shore in the last panel. interesting side note I haven’t watched the jersey shore but I imagine that’s what it’s like.

  19. The Negro Guy says:

    The Negro guy says some people will never get it.

  20. Kramegame says:

    despite the Jersey Shore attitude, he seems to be handling it pretty well. hmm, I expected more rage, but I guess he got kinda “shocked into submission” as they say…

    • Jim says:

      Trevor strike me as the kind of guy who has had a LOT of experiance with “rejection” … I just have that “feeling”, know what I mean?

      • Kessog says:

        But is he dealing with rejection if he is so full of himself that if someone doesn’t like him there is something wrong with THEM?

    • Gillsing says:

      I don’t get why anyone would expect Trevor to become violent. The only ‘violent’ thing I remember him doing was telling Nate that he knew martial arts. And that doesn’t seem very violent. That just seems childish.

      In the same vein I don’t get why people want to beat him up, or see him beaten up. Sure, he’s a stupid douche who’s taken advantage of Rose’s behaviour, but she can take responsibility for her own choices. Beating people up just because they’re stupid douches seems like fascism to me.

      • Pink freud says:

        Think of it less as fascism and more as volunteering to be the agent of social darwinism.

        Trevor is quite accurate – he is more real them most people can handle. We all really know at least one dickweed of Trevor’s demeanor, and they are universally detested. So, we are only too eager to see Trevor get his comeuppance.

  21. Gavin says:

    In Australia, we’d call this guy a TOSSER

  22. drealm2459 says:

    the im more real comment was never said by fry but i do think it was said by some guy amy dumped. or maybe it was someone the one eye chick ditched.. i kinda remeber this…

  23. Assassine says:

    lil’ dickweed is gonna be begging for a fuck soon

    • Pashakitty says:

      LOL. He aught to hook up with Tracy, their personalities would match rather well and it’s obvious that she could work him round to doing anything she wanted.

  24. Ginger says:

    As breakups go, I actually thought that went pretty well.

  25. Kona says:

    I have the sense that Trevor is the kind of romantic sociopath who goes for quantity over quality, beds as many women as he can and has neither emotional involvement or regrets. Or at least wants to be.

  26. DiDi says:

    And… that little bit of respect for him sorta manning up just went right out the window.

    Still… with how many exes and shit do the casual romps now and again, can you blame him for wondering?

  27. Kobra says:

    Actually if you have to say youre “too real,” that’s a indicator that you arn’t, so no, no you arn’t.

  28. Passerby says:

    But… but… where is our glorious havoc? Our uninhibited carnage and mayhem?!

  29. Plasmo says:

    I hate that guy with a passion.

  30. pigza says:

    I love the way his mouth looks in the last panel, that is a priceless piece of drawing.

  31. PantherScott says:

    Oh you poor imbecile. Claiming you keep things real doesn’t make everyone connected to Jersey Shore look like jackasses, it doesn’t save you either.

  32. Lycandis says:

    Step 1: Close off poor idiot who thought they had a chance
    Step 2: Re-initialize the target
    Step 3: watch the hilarity of the target whomping the idiot who thought he was “Real”

  33. LadyMaul says:

    I kind of took Trevor’s “I’m more real” comment as irony — he thinks he’s “real”, and yet he’s so out of touch with the agreed-upon reality that it’s almost sad and pathetic.

    I really don’t wish it upon him to get beaten up, but it usually happens to guys like him, just because they’re so totally clueless. Someone tripping him to he lands face down in the Jello pool could be amusing, but something tells me he’ll just end up landing face down in Rose’s mom… lol!

  34. Reality Is A Troll says:

    Unfortunately, it’s people like him who seem to be everywhere, especially among the people I seem to make contact with. It’s those whom I have classes with, etc. that always find these people the most attractive, and make horrible decisions such as giving up their vriginity just to be with them and even getting back together with them after getting tossed to the side.

    Ranting aside, it’s people like him that I really hate. Chivalry is not dead, and people need to show it.

  35. John Madden says:

    Man, what a dumbass.
