Cast Edit

Transcript Edit

Panel 1

Haley: Hey, Roy.
Roy: Look at this. It's going to take me half the night just to get this back to usable condition
Haley: No, please, don't fawn all over me just because we retrieved you from death itself. It's embarassing[sic].

Panel 2

Roy: Right, well, thanks for that too.
Haley: Just don't do it again OK?
Roy: Missed me, did you?
Haley: Sure. Every archer needs a meat shield to hide behind.
Roy: Heh.

Panel 3

Haley: Plus...I don't think I'm really cut out to be leader.
Roy: You did alright, as far as I could see.
Haley: See? You could see us?
Roy: Some of the time.

Panel 4

Haley: I'm surprised you remember everything.
Roy: I don't. Not everything. I remember the clouds, and my father, and a glowing ball of light. And I remember what I saw when I was floating around down here.

Panel 5

Roy: But beyond the Big Golden Gate... it's all a blur. A big happy fulfilling blur, but still.
Roy: And for some reason, I have this awesome idea for a cool sword move...I think I might try it out later, see if it works.

Panel 6

Haley: know about Belkar, then? That the Mark of Justice got removed?
Roy: Yeah, I know. I watched the little jerk whack the Oracle. (He got better.)
Haley: What do we do if we can't control him?
Roy: We run out the clock.

Panel 7

Roy (inset): Pretty soon, Belkar's fate will be someone else's problem. Someone bony with a black robe and a big scythe. Until then, we do what we can to keep him pointed at the bad guys.
Belkar: Wait, you're THANKING me for dumping you off of a cliff?!?
O-Chul: Without your cowardly actions, I could not have gone where I needed to be difficult though it was.
O-Chul: However, should I learn of you treating any other person in this manner, I will gut you with my hands.

Panel 8

Haley: That may be easier than before—ever since he woke up from the coma, he's been Employee of the Month.
Roy: Do you think it's a legitimate change of heart?
Haley: Hell, no. I think it's a ploy.

Panel 9

Roy: Well, if it's a ploy that takes...let's see...more than seven weeks for him to pull off, we don't have a problem.
Haley: Do you really think we can end this whole thing—beat Xykon and the goblins in just seven weeks?

Panel 10

Roy: I'll bet you ten gold pieces that we can.
Haley: You're on.

Panel 11

Roy and Haley look at the sunset.

Panel 12

Roy: You're not going to sabotage the mission to win ten gold, are you?
Haley: Hey, now, see? We'll get you thinking like a rogue yet!
