This is.... a Pulp Fiction joke! I like that Hanna is maybe vaguely turned on.
Recently I watched The Rock (1996) and there is a running plot thread where Nicholas Cage's character needs to self-inject an antidote into his heart, and there is a lot of hemming and hawing about whether to do it. I don't know how the writers thought we still wanted more of that in our lives. The movie did great at the box office, and this particular comic made me a millionaire, so apparently they (and me) were right.
PS Sorry I missed a couple of commentary days this week - I was traveling for a wedding and fell behind! The posts are retroactively commented on, and commentary resumes as normal!

This comic made you a millioinaire?? Because Eve gave the bird a shot in the heart?
Ah, I can relate. I also get turned on by pop culture references.
I like to think that, between panels 3 and 4, Julie said, "The day I bring an OD-ing parrot over to your place, then I give it the shot. Give it the shot."
