The Transcript For This Page

Panel 1
Cut to: The outskirts of Aldrinopolis, during day/gloom, a police cruiser soars over the edge-city-scape. There are two cops inside.
Voice from in cruiser: Busted two pay-grades and banished to the outer suburbs! Is this what they call justice?
Other voice: AI CAME VRY CLOSE 2 JUS TURNIN IN MAH BADGE, U KNOE.

Panel 2
Interior of the cruiser, we see it is the same two cops who busted Nicole way back around strip 310.
Female cop: Oh, really? And what would you do for a living?
Male cop: YA, THAZ TEH CONSIDERASHUN DAT STOPPD ME. THAR ISNT ANOTHR JOB DAT SUITS ME BETTR THAN DIS WAN.
Panel 3
Same shot, now the male cop is suddenly alerted to something going on outside.
Female cop: Same here -- also, the police pension is just too sweet a deal to walk away from.
Male cop: I GUES WELL JUS HAS 2 -- HAY, WUT WUZ DAT?

Panel 4
Exterior: Someone in a Bubb swoops and loops around them, practically taunting the cops. We can see a figure riding in it but can't make out who it is.
Female cop: Another joy-rider in a damn Bubb!
Male cop: LETS NAIL DIS TRAFFIC-TERRORIST!

Panel 5
The Bubb straightens its course and soars skyward, leading the cruiser high over the city outskirts.
Female: How high can those Bubbs go?
Male: IM GONNA KATCH HIM BEFORE HE FINDZ OUT.


Panel 6
The Bubb suddenly loops back and alights atop one of the cruiser's impeller-intakes, instantly destabilizing it. We can see its occupant now -- a dummy made up to look like Nicole. The cops panic.
Male: O FUCK!
Female: Get it off! Get it off!

Panel 7
The cruiser plummets thousands of meters in a spiral.
Male: AI CANT!
Female: Then we're going to die!
Male: Noooooooooo!

Panel 8
Cut to: Seamus' stateroom on the cruiser going to Mars. He's sitting in a reclining chair, with his feet up, his head supported, hands across his belly, smiling contentedly. From the doorway, Buford and Nicole peer in at him curiously.
Caption: Five million kilometers away:
Buford: Is he sleeping or in deep concentration?
Nicole: That smile suggests he's having a sexy dream -- better leave him be.
