Mike is uncharacteristically slothful and uninvolved here. You'd think he'd be ready to do whatever it is he needs to do to stop his archenemy Bob, but he's content to just sit and watch TV. I get the impression he is only half-paying attention to Stu because he is too enthralled by The Twilight Zone. But I can't remember if that's what I was thinking when I wrote this. It's possible I just felt like writing Mike as a bigger, more apathetic jerk as usual.
I think the punchline on this page is one of my best. Mike is able to take a shot at himself and doubt Stu's plan with one well placed question.
Continuity bonus: Some of the goo from the Chinese food monster from several pages ago is still stuck on the baseboard in the background of panel one. It comes as no surprise that Mike doesn't take the time to thoroughly clean his apartment.
