Cast Edit

Transcript Edit

Panel 1

The party relaxes on chaise lounges in the Royal Suite. Roy wears bunny slippers.
Roy: Hey, you know, we're all enjoying this luxury, but we should at least share it with the others.
Roy: We should get Vaarsuvius and Belkar up here.

Panel 2

Beat. Everyone frowns.

Panel 3

Roy: We should get Vaarsuvius up here.
Elan: Yeah, definitely!
Haley: Sure, let's get V in here.
Durkon: Aye.

Panel 4

Haley: You know what, the servants are off getting more grapes anyway, I'll go get V.
Durkon: Aye, I'll go wit ye. I want to drop me armor off in me room so I can get one o' them fancy massages later.

Panel 5

Elan: Hey Roy, can I ask you a question?
Roy: And thus begins the end of my relaxation. Sure, Elan, ask away.

Panel 6

Elan: Do you like Miko?
Roy: Yeah.
Elan: I mean, do you LIKE like—
Roy: I knew what you meant.

Panel 7

Elan: Why?
Roy: I'm sorry?
Elan: Why do you like her?
Roy: Well, uh, we have the same alignment, and... uh... she's really good-looking, and... umm... and she's good-looking.

Panel 8

Elan: But she's mean.
Roy: Well I admit she's a bit rough around the edges, but I don't—
Elan: No, she's really mean, Roy. To me, and to Vaarsuvius, and to you too. You just pretend she's not for some reason.

Panel 9

Elan: I was thinking, why would Roy LIKE like a girl who is so mean to his friends, and I can't figure it out. Unless you like her more than us.
Elan: Is that it, Roy? Do you like Miko more than you like me?

Panel 10

Roy: Uh, well... see, the thing is... I mean...
Roy: See, Elan, the thing of it is—

Panel 11

An explosion blows out one of the walls, "BOOOM!"

Panel 12

Elan: What was that???
Roy: Thank you, gods, for your well-timed explosion.
