The Transcript For This Page

Panel 1
Seamus, Nicole (wearing a new Anysuit) and Buford in the concourse at the Circumular 2 spaceport. An overhead sign indicates "To L-5 City." Their luggage (Buford has a medium-sized case of her own) trails along at their heels.
Caption: The next afternoon:
Nicole: We're going back to L-5 City?
Seamus: Briefly. In four days there will be a high-speed liner departing for Mars, which would have been uncomfortably high-grav for me before ...

Panel 2
Seamus, Nicole and Buford. Seamus spreads his arms wide to show his new svelte body.
Seamus: But with my new -- ah -- sveltetude, I should be able to manage 78 days in five gravs with no trouble.
Nicole: I'm not sure I'm up to that, to tell the truth.
Panel 3
Seamus, Nicole and Buford stop to check their luggage next to the gateway. A large holosign announces HAUGHTY XL-5 Departing for L-5 City 15:30.
Seamus: That's why you will be getting a complete restorative physical, including two days at Aine's Spa.
Nicole: Sounds great. What about Buford?
Panel 4
Seamus, Nicole and Buford continue to their departure gate. Seamus flashes some tickets at a gate attendant.
Seamus: Buford will of course get a traveler's physical, and since Beltapes don't do implants I'll see if I can get her fitted with an earpiece. Will that be okay with you?
Buford: So long as I can remoof it whenefer I want to, t'at will be fine.
