Cast Edit

Transcript Edit

Panel 1

Gannji: Oh, was that trick too hard for you? How about, "Lie down"?
Gannji trips Haley with his military fork, "sweep!".

Panel 2

Gannji: Get your blue ass up.
Enor: But the elf said to sit on my hands.
Gannji: You don't have hands, you moron! You have claws!

Panel 3

Enor breaks the suggestion, "snap!"
Enor: Oh yeah.
Gannji: For the record, you'll also be safe if it tells you to sit on your brain.

Panel 4

Elan: OK, you—I don't know why you're dragon us into a fight...
Elan: But it's time I tipped the scales and brought the two of you to—

Panel 5

Enor hits Elan on the head with his morning star, "WONK!
Elan passes out.

Panel 6

Enor: Puns are for girls.

Panel 7

Gannji: Grab them both, I've got the Teleport scroll.
Enor: What about the third one?
Gannji: We don't need her, and I frankly think we got sort of lucky bagging these two.
Gannji: Let's get out of here while the getting is—

Panel 8

Blackwing: STOP!

Panel 9

Blackwing: Before you take my wizard away, I just have one question.

Panel 10

Blackwing: So you're saying that purple lizard was you??
Vaarsuvius: *sigh*

D&D Context Edit

  • Tripping attacks can be made with certain weapons to cause the target to fall prone.

Trivia Edit

  • The title and Blackwing's question in the final panel refer to strip #178, The Early Bird Catches the Wizard, in which Blackwing attempted to catch and eat Vaarsuvius who had been polymorphed into a lizard. Haley mentioned to Blackwing and the others that Vaarsuvius had been turned into a lizard in #674, yet he appears to only put it together that the purple lizard he was chasing was the transformed V in this strip, some 40 strips later.
