The Transcript For This Page

Panel 1
A somewhat nervous Nicole approaches another Customs station, with a tough-looking female Customs agent, standing next to a control console of some sort. The agent points to a 1-meter-square rectangle taped onto the floor.
Agent: That's right, miss, come this way and stand in the square.

Panel 2
Two-shot of customs agent and Nicole.
Agent: Now, raise your arms so we can scan you.
Nicole: Scan? Why do you want to scan me? What did I do?

Panel 3
Agent crosses her arms and growls at Nicole, who looks intimidated.
Agent: Look, miss, my advice is not to give me any trouble.
Agent: I get L-5 people here all the time, thinking they can just do whatever they want.
Agent: Now, spread your arms or I'll have a colleague come over and spread them for you. Got it?
Panel 4
A cone of light shines down on Nicole, who has spread her arms. A light flashes on the console.
SFX: BWAARP!
Agent: Yeah, I thought so.
Nicole: What is it?


Panel 5
The Agent, intimidating as ever, and Nicole, the intimidatee.
Agent: I'll ask the questions here, miss.
Agent: Are you wearing any sort of holographic projection device?

Panel 6
Medium close-up on Nicole, still stressed.
Nicole:Well, sure, my anysuit uses holographic …
Agent: Deactivate your anysuit, please.

Panel 7
The agent and Nicole. Nicole looks around her nervously..
Nicole: Here? In the open?
Agent: Holography interferes with the scanner. Now, do as you're told.

Panel 8
Two-shot of the agent and Nicole. The agent is rolling her eyes, as Nicole stands with her suit deactivated, exposing its true leotard-like form, along with her utility belt. Feeling naked, Nicole is covering her breasts and her crotch almost instinctively.
Agent: {sigh} Hold your arms outward for the scanner, miss. I doubt you have anything I haven't seen already.
Nicole: Then why do you need to scan me?
