Gavin is not amused.

I’d say more, but I admit to being at a loss as to what to add.

I think everyone is at a loss except for maybe Rudy. xD

I concor im assuming calling her "gavins mom" is a in-joke?

My guess is it's a reference to Buffy the Vampire Slayer.

@Centcomm

I admittedly never really watched Buffy, so I didn't realize I was referencing something. I just thought it might be the quirky kind of thing Rudy would do.

I actually imagined Rudy meeting his mom for the first time and just calling her "Gavin's Mom" whether she liked it or not. Not Mrs. Kurz. Not even Simone. Just Gavin's mom, every time. Eventually she just gives up and he keeps calling her that.

Long story short: Rudy's just being Rudy. ^_^

Addresing a friends mother as "Whoever's Mom" instead of the more formal Mrs Lastname is a practice that goes back to like the 1950s. In the late 70s when I was in high school we always addressed one of my friend's mother as "Billy's Mom" instead of Mrs Gilbert when she drove us around to various events.

Long story short... Great one Rudy! I have a feeling things are about to get interesting now. I love Gavin's reaction at the end (hand on face "Oh man...").

Panel 6 is the only detail Gavin's Mom really cares about here.
