Bring on the female lead!
After refining her hairstyle for a few weeks, I was finally ready to introduce the unglamorously-named "Patty" to the strip. Like Sam and Diane, I was going to throw them together and pull them apart as I saw fit. Of course, she wouldn't just jump into his arms--this was a four-year plan we're talking about, so it had to start slow. It doesn't start much slower than flat-out rejection. I have to give Bill Beagle (the lead character) credit for persisting after getting shot down as many times as he did.
