PANEL 1, SCENE: Flight Attendant Jill and Captain Jack are talking inside the plane.

CAPTION: Jack was persistent, though! During the flight, he rushed out of the cockpit and cornered a crucial moment!

JILL: But...people are eating! I've got to hand out the barf bags before it's too late!

JACK: Let 'em use their carry on bags!

PANEL 2, SCENE: Jack and Jill are arguing as a passenger looks on.

JACK: I've got to know now! Will you be my Valentine?

JILL: Wake up and smell the coffee, Fly Boy! I can't be anyone's Valentine---not the way I cook!

PANEL 3, SCENE: Passenger asks Jill something.

PASSENGER: Stewardess, how about a gin and tonic?

JILL: Sure, I could use a drink!

PANEL 4, SCENE: Jill and Jack are talking again.

CAPTION: "I was sure Jack had given up, but later in the flight I learned how wrong I was!"

JILL: Y-y-you ate one of the meals I served? On purpose?

JACK: I love you, Jill! To prove it...I even had a second helping!

PANEL 5, SCENE: Jack and Jill talk.

JILL: Oh, Jack! Even the...Brussels sprouts?

JACK: Sure! <Burp!> Can't you tell?

  1. This time you’re not responsible for the spelling error. In the original comic she says all the passengers are abroad.

    • I’m always glad when I don’t make a sppelling misttake, Vernn!

  2. Maybe she should stay away from this guy; betting $20 in 1960 is the equivalent of betting over $160 today. He could have a gambling problem, or he thinks so much of himself that he thought he had no chance of losing a bet based on his sexual attractive powers. Then again, some women just like the bad boys! I wish I could see how the original story turned out, but the site I’m looking at doesn’t have issue #15 of First Kiss (although it has a dozen other issues of FK).

    • Good point about the amount of money in the bet, Fritz. But I do have some good news. When I post the third and final page of the Last Kiss version of the story, I’ll also be posting the third and final page of the original First Kiss story.

      I’ll be posting it Thursday night.

  3. New: Loos like the setup for Airplane. Shirley you can’t be serious.
    Old: Sept. 11 prevents that from happening today.

  4. Good luck Miss Robbins. We’re all counting on you.

  5. She lost her virginity because of turbulence. Well. I suppose that’s true of all of us

    • Absolutely!
