Heads Up! Holiday Break Coming. [ Dec 16, 2016 ]
We at BHP wanted to give you a little heads up that next Friday, December 23rd, will be the final strip of Quantum Vibe for 2016. "Gasp!" you exclaim? Well, worry not concerned reader, for this is merely our annual one week break for the production staff to take a well earned rest and enjoy the holidays (as we hope you will as well). New strips will begin again Monday, January 2nd, 2017.
The Transcript For This Page
Buford, Nicole, Seamus and Ventura are seated at a table in the restaurant. They are looking at holo-screen menus being projected in front of them. Buford does not have her visor on.
Buford: Can I get a menu in Anglish?
Nicole: Use your visor.
Buford: The fisor gifs me a headache.
Ventura (to Seamus): Do you wish for me to also consume food?
Nicole touches a finger to a lower corner of Buford's menu, and it changes to English.
Nicole: Oh, all right. Here you go.
Seamus (to Ventura): Not necessary. If you like, you may order a glass of lubricant.
Nicole glances at Ventura as she punches her order into her holographic menu. Ventura's menu has disappeared.
Nicole: So, uh, Ventura ... you can consume food?
Ventura: To some extent. I can chew and swallow, of course, and my internal mechanisms can extract minerals and convert sugars to alcohol, which some of my components can use.
Seamus is punching in his order, while Buford still studies her holo-menu. Nicole smiles at Ventura.
Nicole: Convert food to alcohol? Wish I could do that.
Seamus: If that were the case you'd never stop eating.
Nicole gives Seamus a hurt look.
Nicole: You wound me, Seamus. After what happened on Luna, I've learned my lesson.
Seamus: We shall see.
Ventura: Is it permitted to ask, what happened on Luna?
Buford grins a wry grin, Nicole glares at Buford, Seamus smiles quietly. Ventura is placid.
Buford: She took a guy to bed who turned out to be a mercorp spy and a rapist, then got t'rown in jail.
Nicole: Hey! It was ... more complicated than that.
Ventura looks at Buford, who is finally punching her order into her holo-menu.
Ventura: Dr. O'Murchadha said that you are Ms. Nicole's assistant, yes?
Buford: Yes. Why?
Ventura: Then should you be embarrassing your employer this way?
Buford is non-plussed. Nicole laughs. Seamus looks amused. Ventura is calm.
Nicole: Ha-ha! Score one for Robot-Girl.
Ventura: I am not a robot, I am an android.
