someone else's sperm.

I can't...

I can't deal with that.

So then should I just

go in the bathroom,

jerk off into a cup,

put it in a turkey baster

or something?.


I don't even have

a turkey baster.

Well, how do you wanna do this?.

I wanna do it

the old fashioned way.


Whoa! What?.

Are you just trying to get some?.

Gross! What?. No!

Come on, we did this in college.

Yeah, we did it in college,

but we were really

drunk when we did it.

Do you want to get really drunk?.

And you stopped

talking to me

for like a whole month

afterwards, remember?.

You showed up at my

and you ruined it.

For the millionth time,

I am sorry.

And I did not stop talking

to you because we had sex.

Well, then why did you?.

Who remembers?.

I certainly don't.

Hey, do you think that you can?.

Can what?.

Have sex with me?.

What is this - a dare?.

Yes, I can have sex with you.

You can do it?.

Yes, I can.

I'm a guy,

I can put it in anything.

Okay, then I'll get

an ovulation kit,

which tells you

when you're ready.

But according to my

lunar calendar,

I'm about a week.

And then I'll just...

come over.

You agreeing to this?.

I think I am.

Yeah, then you're just

gonna come on over,

and we're gonna make a baby.

I stopped reading Spider-Man

ever since he made

that deal with the devil.

I was such

a huge Mary Jane fan.

I don't know why

they screwed that up.

I'm sticking to the X Books.

At least when Cyclops

psychically cheated

with Emma Frost on Jean Grey,

who we all know

is the love of his life,

at least there was

a little build up.

It didn't happen overnight.

And they didn't need the

devil to magically swoop in

and say, oh,

suddenly you're not--

Hey, Tom.

Hey, Matt.

- Hi.

- Hey.

It's Thursday.

What are you doing here?.
