Everyone wants to help someone in need, but sometimes the help they can offer isn't enough, or is the wrong kind of help.

- Every time when I see this comic I'm close before some tear drops running out of my eyes ;( --Dgbrt (talk) 21:42, 9 December 2013 (UTC)
Waitwaitwait. So the guy was in the building all along, witnessing the suicide/self-harm, and he failed to stop a woman from apparently successfully knocking herself out? 16:19, 24 May 2014 (UTC) 126.96.36.199 (talk) (please sign your comments with ~~~~)
I thought Cueball was choking her!188.8.131.52
I thought maybe it was about Randall's wife. Just like some of the comics feature her implicitly, I thought maybe this one did. 184.108.40.206 (talk) (please sign your comments with ~~~~)
I think the explanation is a bit off. Sometimes getting someone into a hospital is helping. I've had to call 911 to get friends help. Things usually got bad for a while after that. 220.127.116.11 21:46, 26 April 2015 (UTC)
The first time I saw this one, it was some 2 or 3 days after I had to call the police for a friend who was attempting suicide. It hit way, way too close to home, to the point where I wanted to cry. I ended up just getting up right then and going for a long walk in the woods to clear my head. 7:24, 2 July 2015 (UTC) 18.104.22.168 (talk) (please sign your comments with ~~~~)
To 22.214.171.124, he married in 2011... this comic was made in 2008. Unfortunately, we may never know who he is referring to. 126.96.36.199 (talk) (please sign your comments with ~~~~)
