The Transcript For This Page

Panel 1
Smaller panel -- Reggie and Bert

Bert: Okay, but wasn’t that ‘World Ceres Pennant’ bit kinda cruel?

Bert (2): When he shows it to his sports-fan friends back on Terra, they’ll crucify him with teasing and ridicule.

Panel 2
Larger, Abstract panel. Try to channel Steve Ditko. Guy Caillard is standing by himself looking really embarrassed as he is surrounded by larger-than-life lauching faces.

Reggie (out of frame): I want Caillard to have every reason to escape from Terra. For us primates, ridicule is usually more persuasive than bayonets.

Panel 3
Back at the table, Reggie hoists his beer mug in a toast-making gesture.

Reggie: He’ll come here and be a productive and proud Cererean.

Panel 4
The three friends click their mugs together making their toast.

Bert and Ernie in unison: Hear Hear!

Reggie: To the World Ceres.
