The Transcript For This Page

Strip 9

Panel 1
A moment after the previous strip’s last panel.
Guy has turned and is glaring darkly at the crewman, who’s sly smile is fading. Fiorella can be seen just behind Guy.

Guy: Fur-lined what?

Crewman: Um, handcuffs. You know, bonds, bindings. … It was just a joke.

Panel 2
Guy is not a physically imposing man but he is totally in the crewman’s face now, exuding the Force of Authority against the hapless scrounger, who is cringing now.

Guy: Well crewman Avery Mason, I see by your tag that you are from Earth and work for the ship's catering crew. If you think you are clever, let's see how clever you are on your tax return. Shall I schedule an audit?

Guy (2): You might think your books are 'clean' but everyone is up to something. Everyone, do you understand? And I will find out!

Panel 3.
Guy and Fiorella walk away down the corridor, the crewman watches them go and mutters to himself.

Crewman: Everyone’s up to something, all right, but I don’t think I want to know what goes on behind his door.
