Didn't Sandy have a similar response to the contractor?

With Sandy drooling over Anthony and Swamps flipping his cap before Jinx's sister, Doc probably has a drama curve coming up.

Or maybe Jess and Anthony wander off together, leaving Swamps and Sandy trying to not look too guilty to each other.

This is far from the first time that Swampy's gone all googly-eyed over someone. He does it regularly with Pirta, too. But he keeps his paws to himself and very obviously loves Sandy. This is 100% in character with him and I don't think anything that anyone should be concerned about (plus, I just don't really see Doc (the actual Doc) really wanting to get into the hard, tough, gritty subject of dating drama. TWB's a bit more fun and fancy-free than that. The most we really get is the stuff between Kasi's biological parents, and even that's almost entirely off-panel).
Plus, as has been pointed, out, Sandy's had her eyes wander from time to time.

As I once heard it put, "Just because you aren't hungry doesn't mean you can't look a the menu."

Next time, Sandy might try to generously apply flour on top of the oil ;)

Swampy's not the only one in a relationship who's drooled over other women. Roger's married, but he set up the shower gag, among other things. Jake was picturing Tawney and Sandy in the nude during one of the April 1st strips. Red's married, but he certainly appreciated seeing Tawney, Sandy and Pirta at the start of the Longest Day arc.

Jake pictures Tawny making moves on Pirta during one of their practices, too. 

"What?!? NO! I wasn't imagining anything like that!" 😁

Personally, I'm of the opinion that a lady who too tightly restricts what her guy can look at, is too controlling and likely generally shrewish.

On the other hand, I'm also of the opinion that that guy also shouldn't be wandering around the mall with his girlfriend constantly wolf-whistling at other women and telling her "Ooo, check out the hooters on THAT one!"

In this case, Sandy is well aware of Swampy's wandering eye, but she also knows he's never actually tried anything, and still comes home to her at night.

Doc.
