      It's a step up from the 90s when everyone sort of just awkwardly watched their feet.
      Scanning the top of heads.
      Intensely concentrating at ads.
      Oh, wow, brighter teeth in three weeks? This is definitely worth examining in detail for the next forty-five minutes.

  3. Kelly says:

    My guess is she's going to visit a family member that lives in some sort of assisted living home that we haven't met yet. Secrets to be revealed :)

  4. jjk says:

    Did everyone get a text at the same time? :o

  5. Sammy says:

    372 floors?! This building must go in to space!!!

    • wykstrad says:

      Looks like Hannah's gonna be getting pretty high today after all…

    • @chiieddy says:

      Empire state building has 102 floors. The not yet finished Freedom Tower will have 104 floors. So where the hell is she?

      • BMunro says:

        Well, although realistic most of the time, this comic does occasionally make a turn into the fantastic (the international barista conspiracy, etc.), so I have no trouble imagining that in Hanna's version of NY they have a Frank R. Paul Ridiculously Huge Building neighborhood.

        Or, as someone else said, it could be the weed kicking in.

    Dead pandas is going to be my punk band.

  7. Vabolo says:

    Haha, wow, I just noticed everyone checking their phones at the same time in panel four.

  8. liebezeit says:

    …it can take a while to kick in, Hanna…

  9. MerchManDan says:

    Suddenly, tiny Hanna.

  10. fishang1 says:

    That's like, two Burj Dubais. What sort of buildings have you been putting up since I last checked, New York?

  11. Mike says:

    That might be the grimmest line to open a webcomic ever.

    "This panda is dead anyway."

  12. Kate says:

    I love that even the small child has a mobile phone. Modern times.

  13. Macca says:

    I posit that things will get progressively weirder and weirder until we as readers realize that Hannah is still at home on the couch and none of this happened.

    It takes a while to kick in.

  14. wykstrad says:

    "Have your I.D. out, because all I hand out are these little pieces of paper that have 'GUEST' written on them, and really anybody could copy those. They're not part of our security procedures; I just hand them out to people so that everybody knows their place."

  15. Connor says:

    I would love to have this page hung in my room.

  16. Garfunkel says:

    Jokes like the cell phone gag are why I love Octopus Pie!

  17. David says:

    So true, see, a chime sounds and everybody checks his/her cellphone, then to avoid the silliness they stare at it or play a game just because.

  18. Fatty Magee says:

    The thing is the subway. No signal inside but when you leave the tunnel, Yay, signal. That why it is dark in one panel and light in the other.
