The Transcript For This Page

Panel 1
Continuing in Reggie's office, Reggie is now standing next to the despondent Guy, still slumped forward in the chair, elbows propped on his knees. Reggie speaks to Guy calmly.

Reggie: I can't tell you what to do; no one can. My only advice is to do what you think is right.

Reggie (2): If you decide to spy for the Strike Force, we'll isolate you but we won't harm you.

Panel 2
Reggie lays a friendly hand on Guy's shoulder while grinning mischievously; Guy looks up at Reggie quizzically.

Reggie: If you decide to serve your … uh, king, you might just win yourself another World Ceres Pennant.

Panel 3
Reggie is standing up again, hands braced on hips. Guy is still slumped in his chair but is looking up at Reggie.

Reggie: Listen to your 'Inner cowboy.' What does he tell you to do?

Guy: To ride, shoot straight, and speak the truth.

Panel 4
Reggie looks a bit surprised. Guy is sitting up straighter, and rather out of character for him, grinning shyly.

Guy: My grandparents had that quote framed on their living room wall in Ajaccio, France.

Guy (2): When I read it, it made me feel like a real cowboy, like a real man.

Panel 5
Medium shot on Reggie, a quiet, contemplative smile.

Reggie: It's the title of a book by Jeff Cooper, seems to have been the code he lived by.

Reggie (2): Cooper's sort of a personal hero of mine, too.

Reggie (3): Anyway Guy, that's good enough for me. You're in the club.

Panel 6
Medium shot on Guy, looking a bit contrite.
Guy: When I came here before, I was a bit of an ass, wasn't I?

Panel 7
Reggie, now on his own side of the desk, leans across it towards Guy and braces himself with his knuckles on the desktop.

Reggie: Government schools – propaganda mills, really – confused and deluded you. They fed you an evil value system that made you think wrong was right.

Reggie (2): In that, you were not alone.

Panel 8
Now Reggie is standing at attention, and saluting Guy. Guy leans back in surprise, taking it in.
Reggie: But you're the one in-a-million who saw the truth. And you're going to become a good human being.

Reggie: I salute you.
