Oh Rodge… You have no idea what you’re getting yourself into.
Rog, Rog, Rog….you are making us geeks look bad. Did you really think that was going to work?
And could you be a tiny bit more discreet with the eyerolls?
Rog, Rog, Rog. You are going to end up sleeping on the floor. You might get a pillow.
And who's that in the hat and paper?
Yea, he’s not exactly subtle, is he.
Eh, cots cost like 10 bucks a night. 20 if they wanna overcharge.
No cot’s for him for his douche move. We know Nat is really a guy but Rodger doesn’t. You never corner a girl like this it’s mean and scary for her.
Considering she is in a strange city with no friends or support.
—This is a guy saying this—
Creepy, yes, but I’m not gonna punish the guy for it and it’s not like he hasn’t indicated an interest before, which Nat’s not into granted. Just order the cot and, if he’s a decent guy, there won’t be anything more that he can do.
It’s the easiest thing to do and to be frank, I don’t want to have a feminist argument on this page, especially since I consider myself one (and yes, I am a guy). Let’s just agree this was a douchey thing to do but that he won’t go any farther with it (because if it did, this comic would go from PG to R really fast). Chalk it up to social and dating ineptitude (I mean, what did he THINK was going to happen?).
I think its rather obvious what he was thinking would happen particularly given his pointing at her when talking to the clerk.
Also your not wanting to get into a debate aside yes that’s not something you do to a girl in a strange city but in his defense I get the feeling he’s not very experienced either and is genuinely thinking this is what happens from seeing too many movies.
wow that is a great idea will have to try it some time lol
If he gets lucky, maybe he’ll still have the necessary appurtenances to actually get lucky later with some other girl after “Natalie” finishes ‘splainin’ things.
Sadly I think Natalie will buy this and not insist on his sleeping on the floor. Of course the fact she apparently already agreed to share a room doesn’t help her case and I do like her having difficulty pinning the badge to a skintight blouse because of her breasts.
Also interesting that she’s apparently really enjoying herself in general given her expression in that second and fourth panel.
Also yes who is that man in a hat.
Who is the stalker? :O
Probable a detective his boss send after finding out that this Natalie doesn’t exists
No competent detective would be so obvious. This is a rank amateur.
I doubt the stalker was sent by the boss. More likely its unrelated.
I bet it’s Jeanie.
Ya i agree, Jeanie can easily change form… provided its a female form. But we haven’t been able to see this “guys” chest yet. Probably checking to make sure Neil has a bad time.
Why would “Jeanie” be watching with such angry eyes?
IIRC Jeanie can’t make herself male. Kind of the whole point of the strip.
Val, we haven’t seen any sign that it isn’t just Jeanie with short hair.
I agree that it could be Jeanie. Especially because of the hat, which she would need to hid the genie cap that she never seems to be without.
The hair color is wrong for Jeanie, but she could change that. I’m about 50% convinced it’s her. Of course it could be some foreign operative trying to cultivate US engineers with clearances. That would take the strip in interesting directions.
What are you guys talking about? That’s just a random fan in a dumb disguise. XD JK
“Oh Rodge… You have no idea what you’re getting yourself into.”
I believe he has a very good idea of what he hopes he is getting himself into.
But the real problem will be getting out of what he’s getting into…
Is this the moment that Nat discovers the special added attraction to guys attached to this change a-la the Greek ship captain?
muahahahaaha, let the games begin X3
Natalie’s first convention as a female. This will be educational for her.
Nice opening picture of the Vegas Strip.
My two favorite hotels right there at the bottom, The Excalibur hotel, for the wonderful medieval look and the Tropicana hotel for the early Vegas feel.
Rog, You Dolt !!
This will not end nicely.
and I shall ask like everyone else has… Who is that guy with the paper and hat?
Suspicious newspaper guy is suspicious.
That’s all I got.
its kind of like that guy with the newspaper is tailing them
I want to see if the housekeeper serving their room is wearing a hat and reading a newspaper.
“Once is an accident, twice is coincidence, three times is enemy action.”
I have to love Rog’s happyhappy joyjoy expression. I’d love to know exactly what he’s saying to the clerk in frame 2. I love where he’s looking in frame 3. (And I have to wonder if he deliberately offered to hold Nat’s jacket just before the badging table. )
So, if Neil had won the trip, took Jean(ie) along, and the hotel really _was_ out of doubles…well, let’s say that Natalie would _still_ be spending the weekend in Vegas. (Jean[ie] is not keen on sleeping in her bottle.) Remember the first time that Jeanie and Neil slept together–and there are a _lot_ places to work as a stripper in L.V.
I also remember it was Jeannie who snuggled up to Neil in her sleep.
Jean used to complain about Neil’s reaction to her body. I wonder how Neil will take react with the tables turned on him?
Probably a lot better, at the very least Natalie can’t zap Rog into a strip joint for her snuggling up to him.
I’m a little curious about an “engineers” conference. There are lots of different kinds of engineers–mechanical, civil, electrical, aerospace (Neil and Roger). It is unusual that they would have a conference together.
Don’t forget locomotive!
You’re probably right, but even then, the more generic welcome sign would still be entirely appropriate, and the attendees not having any question its for them. Unless you have several engineer conferences next door to each other at once, in which case there might be confusion. Not that this would tend to happen in real life that they’d be scheduled so, unless they intend for attendees to go to both if they want to as a joint event.
This is not the first time in the history of the human race when a man and woman found themselves in the same bed with no sexual intent. Solutions have been devised.
Perhaps the simplest is to call for a couple of an extra top sheet. The original sheet goes under one person but over the other. The extra sheet is the top sheet for the other person. (Half of it can be rolled up as a kind of boundary marker. )
Tramline: “there are a _lot_ places to work as a stripper in L.V.”
Oh, indeed. And not just strippers. My understanding is that conferences, particularly those with predominantly male attendees, are prime hunting grounds for hookers.
Which raises the interesting question of what Natalie gets to see in the ladies’ rooms.
Damn, I thought I’d fixed this: “Call for an extra top sheet.”
I’m going to chalk it up to fence posts.
In terms of hookers, Nevada is local option by county. In Las Vegas, prostitution is illegal. Outside Clark County, however, there are plenty of legal brothels. (Stossel reported on one, once.) Pahrump, not far from LV, has a very large number of bordellos, for example. Notwithstanding all that, the LV yellow pages have a very large section under “escort services.”
OTOH, I don’t think that Jean(ie) has any intention of her “punishment” of Neil/Natalie involving a stay in the hoosegow. Natalie getting sucked into an amateur strip contest would be one thing; working as a hooker quite another.
I still think Natalie is going to get out of Vegas with her virginity intact, but not without a lot of (mis)adventures. Think Doris Day movies. She only gave it up for marriage. And there is no way Natalie is marrying Roger. She (as Neil) knows him much too well.
You are not taking alcohol into account. Alcohol makes ppl do dumb stuff all the time.
The key flaw in your statement is “without sexual intent”. Roger clearly HAS sexual intent. And therefore, this is a complete douchebag move.
Oh, Rodge… you have no ide WHO you’re trying to get yourself into.
Natalie’s going to have a VERY interesting weekend.
Wonder how getting shot down will affect Rodge?
I wonder how getting SHOT will affect Rodge?
The counter-girl looks happy to see another female. Its a shame that many nerdy things are so boy/men centered.
I wonder if Natalie wears a Bra. Somehow i doubt she has experience with the fine points of female clothing and other stuff so sharing a room will be an adventure.
I’m sure ‘she’ has a set of women’s clothing and undergarments, including bras. Not sure if from Sears or magically created by Jeannie.
If the latter, probably a perfect fit, which I understand is difficult to achieve.
Jeannie creates perfectly tailored women’s clothing including appropriate sized bra.
I wonder if they have tags and washing instructions, and if the bra reveals its size?
A few comics back, Natalie specifically asked Jeanie to provide a bra, since Roger had been noticing she was not wearing one during their evening sessions. So Natalie/Neil is well aware of the matter.
And yes, Natalie is pretty voluptuous. Probably because that was Jean’s idea of what a woman should be like back before he opened the bottle, as indicated by his comments about the original Barbara Eden character.
Why dose Neal/Neillie feel like he/she is on the Titanic and watching the last lifeboat sail away?
And I hate to think what will happen to Roger, when Neal change to his true form and find a nice quite place where Roger and Neal can talk, at least for the first minute or so..
Of course Neal can’t change to his true form without Jeanie’s help so that’s a full weekend at least.
Okay, who is the creepy guy following them?
Wow, Vegas sure has a lot of men in grey suits with fedoras who like to read newspapers.
The convention must be being held at the Tropicana Hotel !
They have a show there called the “Las Vegas Mob Experience” and the man with the paper and fedoras is just an actor from that show… nothing suspicious going on here… Really, just move along..
GOOD NIGHT, EVERYBODY! o_o Rog just went where he shouldn’t have, and if he gets to sleep on the floor, he’ll still be too lucky. He should be out in the corridor…
The guy with the newspaper is Guano. He believes Natalie is Jeanie.
I’m pretty sure that misunderstanding was cleared up and he’s not so much the follow hiding behind a newspaper and more zap the ignorant man into some other place before confronting the master to demand she explainw what’s going on and where he genie is.

“Sadly I think Natalie will buy this and not insist on his sleeping on the floor.”
Yeah, I’m beginning to suspect that “Rog has just bought himself a world of hurt” is wishful thinking. It’s what would happen if Natalie were Jeanie.
But not only is Neil is a bit of a jelly fish, Natalie doesn’t have much experience fending off male attention. (Though this does raise the question of how many passes from Rog she’s had to fend off during the engineering cram sessions.)
I think Natalie will evade Rog’s unwanted attention–but I doubt she’ll be able to put him in his place.
“Also interesting that she’s apparently really enjoying herself in general given her expression in that second and fourth panel.”
Natalie is truly enjoying the convention as a gathering of engineers; she’s clearly in geek heaven. I wonder if Neil has the same wide-eyed look when he attends. That’s quite a contrast with Rog, whose expectations lie entirely with his companion.
To those saying Rog is going to far… remember he invited her to Vegas with him and I think the tenor of their meetings haven’t been entirely plutonic. I think he feels this is his first true ‘chance’ to be with her after courting her, unbeknownst to Natalie.
Roger’s flawed expectations do not obligate Neil – or anyone else – to accommodate them. Or accept them as reasonable, for that matter.
“Plutonic” as in volcanoes? I think you mean Platonic. And I guarantee you that Natalie’s only interest in Roger was for Neil getting to keep his job.
And I doubt that Roger knows anything about courting a woman. He’s an engineer, remember? If there isn’t an Operating Manual for a system, an engineer would have to disassemble it to figure out how it works, and I don’t think Roger’s going to disassemble Natalie any time soon…
I also don’t think that being Natalie for a weekend (unusual–conferences are usually work events and take place during the week; I can’t think of one I’ve been to that had anything more than a Sunday evening no-host reception on a weekend) is going to lead to Neil succumbing to female impulses. Now, if Natalie ends up having to pay off Roger’s huge losses at the casino by working as a pole dancer or some such sex object in Vegas for six months, that would be another story. Probably not _this_ story, though.
Yeah, autocorrect suggested plutonic when I typoed. Didn’t think that was right, but you know.
As for Natalie not being required to accommodate Rog, of course. However, see thing from Rog’s point of a view. Very attractive girl, showing him interest, being his plus-one on a trip to Vegas, etc. He obviously thinks the relationship is moving in that direction and hoping maybe an ‘inconvenient sleeping arrangement’ may be the catalyst needed to put them in the same bed together because he’s too sheepish to come right out and suggest it himself.
I am honestly just waiting for Natalie to wake up with a hang over and discovering she’s married to Rog. It is Vegas after all.
If we then get to see a flashback of Nat in a quickly rented wedding dress, I’m all for this idea!
Oh God, Please. I want to see this happen.
Weak-willed or not, I don’t think Neil is going to take the risk of sleeping in the same bed as Roger. He isn’t stupid, after all. Just…nice.
Why are the fingers on rodge’s left hand pink in the last frame?
I just skipped to the bottom of the comments, so if anyone else has already said something about this, my apologies.
Anyway, what do you think the chances are of Roge finding himself herself by the end of this?
Very low, since Natalie is not herself empowered.
And this kind of thing is exactly how Jeanie meant to torture Neil. This is why Jeanie had no plan.
No, I think the chances are greater that Natalie will find herself falling for good old Rodge, after the usual romantic comedy hijinks.
And I rate that chance as not noticeably above zero.
I would like to see natalie waking up from a hangover and seeing Rodg beside her/him.
i think we all know what rodge wants
A woman charm, and a few sleeping pills should take of the situation, and with a little luck, Roger should fall for it more that once.
And I’m now picturing a female roger waking up andwondering what happened to her last night.
Am I (and Nat) the only one(s) who noticed that her boobs suddenly got bigger in panel 3??
