Why do we think that this is Danish? The hair isn't the same and there are no other indicators. LadyMondegreen (talk) 12:59, 13 June 2013 (UTC)

I'm also sure it's not Megan, she isn't that violent. And for now we have chaos here because Danish is still at the transcript.--Dgbrt (talk) 11:45, 18 June 2013 (UTC)
I'm only using Megan because it's drawn like Megan. Megan, like Cueball is basically the default girl. Her personality changes as necessary. Besides, we're seeing an actor play Harriet the Spy so none of the violence is a character trait. I'd classify it as Harriet the Spy, but it's not only not completely accurate but it steps on the punchline. LadyMondegreen (talk) 16:48, 20 June 2013 (UTC)
I will tag this as incomplete. Megan is not that violent and we still have to find a better solution.--Dgbrt (talk) 19:49, 20 June 2013 (UTC)
"Woman" is a fine alternative to "Megan", but too generic. "Female spy" might give away the punchline a little early. "Testosterette" looks too much like the name of a toaster pastry flavoured with bacon, gunshot and a hint of Jack Daniel's. Thokling (talk) 18:11, 28 September 2013 (UTC)

Misuse of "to" in the title text. I'll check this out. --Quicksilver (talk) 19:22, 20 August 2013 (UTC)

Randall has targeted grammar nazi's and people afflicted with OCD in the past. Consider yourself a member in a special breed of Internetter! Thokling (talk) 18:11, 28 September 2013 (UTC)

The "rectangular object" appears to be be the spiral bound notebook when looked at closely. Or is it just me? (talk) (please sign your comments with ~~~~)

Do we know which particular action scenes of which particular movies are satirized in each frame? I get the feeling they're either extremely generic or from something familiar. 15:28, 1 January 2014 (UTC)

The one in the "stop I'll talk" frame reminds me of the scene in Mission Impossible III (I think three) where the bad guy gets the info and then shoots the girlfriend anyway, however it could be from any movie. It was my impression that the panels are more of a "spy goes bananas" aspect so this could just be a reference to the stereotypical spy information extraction tactic gone awry. 20:57, 1 January 2014 (UTC)

The movie based on this book already and by the same name deserves mention here somewhere.-- 03:35, 2 January 2014 (UTC)

Bitch II Terror Beater?

I used Google News BEFORE it was clickbait (talk) 00:40, 29 January 2015 (UTC)

Is the person playing Harriet perhaps Margaret, thus making this her first known appearance? 07:16, 30 June 2015 (UTC)
