We have this conversation at least once a day in my apartment
Title text: We have this conversation at least once a day in my apartment

[edit] Explanation

Cueball clearly means to use fucking as an intensifier. However, the friend (likely intentionally in response to the unnecessary swearing) takes fucking to be an identifier of which jacket is being discussed, and gives a smart-aleck response. His counterpart gets confused by the sarcasm, and the topic is dismissed. Fuck is an obscene term meaning sex and can be used as a noun, verb, adjective, and adverb. A "fucking jacket" would be a jacket worn especially while having sex or, less likely, a jacket that has sex.

The title text states that this often occurs in Cueball/Randall's apartment.

[edit] Transcript

[Two men stand and talk to one another.]
Cueball: Where's my fucking jacket?
[Friend indicates something behind him.]
Friend: Over there, next to your regular one.
Cueball: My what?
Friend: Never mind.

[edit] Trivia

  • This comic is the first to use an all-caps lettering, except for 78: Garfield.

(So, it's the second, then?)
