Does no one else notice how alike these two really are?
- Both wanted a summer romance, no matter what they had to do for it.
- Both retreat into the safety of their garments of choice when upset.
- Both overreact to rejection.
- Both have been at odds with others over their romances.
- Both tried to control their romances out of desperation and fear of losing them (remember Mabel keeping Sev'ral Times captive in her room?)
- Both have tried to be something they aren’t to impress someone else (Mabel pretending to love sock puppets/turtles/etc., and Robbie trying too hard to be “cool” instead of just being himself).
- Both are willing to eat food off of their own clothing.
It’s like Robbie’s just an older, genderswapped Mabel with more angst, and even more eyeliner.
