The Transcript For This Page

Strip 44

Panel 1
Medium close-up of Reggie, starting to doff his kingly attire – underneath he’s wearing a cotton t-shirt and trousers.

Reggie: But let’s get down to business. How do you guys think I did with our Terran friends?


Panel 2
Two-shot of Bert and Ernie. Bert is leaning forward in his chair.


Bert: Smashing light effects, Reggie! And where did you find that crown?

Ernie: Loved the uniform, too. Came from the Ceres Players production of ‘HMS Pinafore,’ right?


Panel 3
Medium shot of Reggie, carefully folding the uniform jacket.

Reggie: Mostly, though I borrowed some pieces from one of the Spartan costumes in ‘Lysistrata.’ The crown was from ‘Camelot.’


Panel 4
Reggie has turned away from the Guzmans while putting some of the Spartan accouterments in a box atop the filing cabinet. He has a wry smile, and you can see Bert and Ernie exchanging grins behind him.

Reggie: I had to choose between ‘Pinafore’ and ‘The Mikado’ and I was pretty sure I couldn’t pull off the ‘oriental potentate’ act.
