    • p0lo

      But… But in the last comic the mou– *STAMP*

    • i like your hat

    • Frank

      “*ahem* In accordance with all federal and state wildlife regulations, no fish were harmed during the making of this film”
      “Aah aaah aaaaahaha! No! He’s gonna eat me! Aah aah aaaaah! Someone help me! He’s gonna eat me!”

  2. Xane

    Everyone lived happily ever after… except the rats!

    • Argent Stonecutter

      But at least they were tasty!

    • Valerio

      they’ll never be forgotten!
      Especially the seasoning

    • holmebrian

      grape should not be playing with her food!

      • gamer35

        i agree! thats bad table manners

      • Ryufire

        But….but…food that has feelings and emotions. They have tons of kids to feed back in the mouse-hole :(

  3. Zaitsev

    Their improv skills are impeccable.

  4. Lunyk Stormdragon

    Wonderful ending!

    • pb98

      well it certainly was an improvised ending

  5. Draven


  6. xhunterko

    *gets bricked for meme abuse*

  7. Dontlookmenaked

    That was…….. ADORABLE!!!!!!!!!!

  8. IceKitsune

    lol Everyone gets married to everyone else according to the Alt Text: “but who get married to–” “EVERYONE”

  9. Keldor

    Gah! The bottom line of the sign has an extra letter! All the rest have 6 letters, but the last line has 7! Worse, this could have been forestalled merely by arranging the letters into a 5×5 grid, which would not only have the same number of letters per row, but the same number of rows and columns!

  10. The Maverick Man

    In a pinch, just post it on cardboard

  11. GameCobra

    *Sees cardboard sign*
    … You win this round, Rick!

    • Argent Stonecutter

      I wanted to see Max playing a tuba.

    • Valerio

      He ALWAYS wins

    • Ryufire

      I wanted to see Max wearing a Mickey Mouse costume just to see the Rat Pack’s reactions :P

  12. Draven

    Still a more climactic ending than “Knowing”

    • The Maverick Man

      Better than Mass Effect 3’s ending

  13. Russiarules1

    It’s over? Aw…

  14. *White fang*

    I to regret some life choices i’ve made :/

  15. Slasheredge

    I think we know who gets married to everyone expect the rats, and whoever sabrina was playing.

  16. VoidedFiIms

    *claps* A wonderful play! I can’t wait for them to do Phantom of the Opera!

    • i like your hat

      wonder who would be the phantom…. im thinking max

  17. jeromeamon

    Still a better love story than twilight

  18. Gabe23

    OH GOD !!! Im in a state of angry … but at the same time I cant be mad cause this is hilarious … I KNOW !!! I hate the ending of this arc, but I cant hated that much cause is really funny. RICK GRIFFIN, you´re a genious

    • The_Rippy_One

      Who says its over yet? The plays done, probably, but that doesn’t mean we can’t get an epilogue…

      • Argent Stonecutter

        Next week: one-offs.

      • GarrisonSkunk

        Don’t forget…it wasn’t until after the Scottish Play Imagiate that we found out about Grape’s noodle incident. Or rather … didn’t find out about it.

  19. Argent Stonecutter

    And now they have to clean up all that confetti.

  20. spencershot4

    i wna hear the confession!

    • Argent Stonecutter

      And the devil will drag you under
      By the fancy tie ’round your wicked throat
      Sit down, sit down, sit down, sit down
      Sit down, you’re rockin’ the boat

      • Raska

        lines from that song in the actual play?

        • Argent Stonecutter

          Yep, “Sit Down, You’re Rockin’ the Boat” is the best-known tune from the play.

          • IceKitsune

            I would argue Luck Be a Lady is more well known since it was covered by Frank Sinatra and is one of his most well known songs.

          • Argent Stonecutter

            But I don’t like that one, so it doesn’t count.

          • ribov

            While “Sit Down. You’re Rocking the Boat” is by far the most entertaining song in the musical, I agree with IceKitsune that “Luck be a Lady” is the better known number.

          • Raska

            I went and looked it up on youtube (‘ve never seen the play) and now I can’t get the song out of my head T.T

          • Argent Stonecutter

            Glad to be of service!

      • Frank

        That song is from this play? I suddenly want to see the whole thing now!

  21. Valerio

    yay! Wedding for everyone!

  22. Maxwell

    Talk about an anti climatic ending lol.
    Still good.


    • Frank

      What? They cut it right where all the conflicts created in the first act were settled! That’s pretty good!

    • Ryufire

      Climatic ending indeed! Just glad no one was eaten in the play! :P

  23. Rick-O

    Awwwww – the best song, too…

  24. WingedwolfGirl

    That’s a wrap.

  25. DanTwelve3

    If they hadn’t actually gone to Cuba, they would have more time.

  26. holmebrian

    they both look so woried

  27. bhPixelFire


    …and marriages…

  28. T-Squared


    “What Happened to the Mouse”?

    (In the previous comic)

  29. Tezarro

    wait, dose this count as happy ending?

    • Baxtrr

      I’m not sure it counts as an ending at all. Maybe it’s just me (and if it is I publicly apologize to Rick) but this ending really smells like “People are complaining that they don’t know the play and are lost, and this isn’t turning out to be as much fun as I’d hoped, so let’s move on as painlessly as possible”. I was looking forward to a lot more jokes in the revival, and the fact that Sky becomes a missionary, and… ah well.

      • Argent Stonecutter

        I dunno, this is about the average length for an Imaginate arc, the Pridelands one was longer but that included over a week of aftermath.

  30. Raska

    the alt text is hilarious :D

  31. Insigma

    Oh God, I hated this musical

  32. Tom Flapwell

    Oh, like in that Monty Python sketch where five men marry each other?

  33. SomeRandomDudeThatLikesThisComic

    They should do a Star Wars reenactment next time.

    • Argent Stonecutter


      • dibs

        both of these would amuse me to no end

        • aerion

          My vote’s for ‘Cats’, especially after learning how intentionally unorganized the script is – apparently, each cat has a name, but each name doesn’t always go to the same role.
          Sometimes one cat’s the Rum-Tum-Tugger, the next he’s nobody special <.<
          I figure it'd involve the housepets cast getting confused about their roles, joking about coming onstage as someone else by just using a different hat, etcetera :P
          Plus, there's a few… Let's say 'alluringly tense' moments involving some of the tomcats :P Let's see how grape handles THOSE :P

    • Gabe23

      Don Quijote

    • GarrisonSkunk

      The dogs could MST3k the Pridelands movie.

  34. FerreTrip

    And in the end we’re reminded they’re still just kids putting on a little show.

  35. bene

    Can we get a king story arch next? With little filler?

  36. Z24

    I agree with the mouse at panel 1.

    Everyone, do you accept everyone as your everything?

  37. Tomas Aldrete

    Best wedding EVER! cardboard all the way!

  38. Perrin

    i’ve gotta ask, are these being released overnight where i am, or is everyone else on here just waiting until morning, at their computers, in order to comment…?

    • Dissension

      New comics are posted at Midnight CST on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday.

      • bhPixelFire

        Aww… so we have to wait ’til Monday…

  39. Erikuto

    How late is it? I don’t think it’s THAT late

  40. Hawkeye4Fur

    Ending very rushed in this one. “EveryoneGetsMarriedTheEnd!” Still, funny!

  41. Blue_Elite

    I bet the marriages are married to each other. Like a legal loop hole (why yes this is a reference to another comic).

  42. Kajex, Sorcerer Supreme


    It was a buffet. :3

  43. ThatGuyBehindYou

    Aw I wanted to see them get married D:
