Cast Edit

Transcript Edit

Panel 1

Haley: Dad, are you sure about this? We're headed all the way to the North Pole. If you don't come now, I don't know when—or even if—I'll be able to come back.
Ian: Stop worrying, Haley! I can take care of myself!
Haley: Since when?

Panel 2

Ian: The last thing I want is for you to get bogged down babysitting your old man. I'll be fine.
Haley: You don't understand. I've left people behind to continue the good fight without me before—
Haley: —and I just found out they all died.

Panel 3

Ian: And you think that's your fault?
Ian: That you could've stopped whatever killed them single-handedly?
Haley: ...No. Not really.

Panel 4

Ian: So you're just beating yourself up over it for no reason.
Haley: Not no reason.
Haley: Just not a good reason.

Panel 5

Ian: You've got your own path to follow now. Your own chance at being better.
Ian: Go and make your mother proud.
Haley: But what about you?

Panel 6

Ian: Go make me proud, too.

Panel 7

Haley: I love you so much, Daddy.
Ian: I love you, too, kitten.

Panel 8

Elan: Uh, Mr. Starshine, sir?
Ian: Oh. It's you.
Haley: Dad, be nice.
Elan: I don't really want to get off the ship because I think your new boss still wants to kill me—

Panel 9

Elan: —but I wanted to give you this.
Ian: What is it? Explosive Runes?
Elan: It's a new secret plan for fighting my father that I came up with on the way over here.

Panel 10

Elan: I wrote it down so I could give it to you.
Ian: This is...

Panel 11

Ian: ...pretty good, actually. Yeah, this might work.
Ian: We'll need to train, and get the right equipment, but... yeah.

Panel 12

Ian: Not bad, kid.
Ian: Maybe you're not a diabolical sleeper agent out to infiltrate my family and destroy everything I've worked for.
Elan: Truly, that's all any man can hope to hear from his girlfriend's father.

Trivia Edit

  • Amun-Zora may want to kill Elan because he stopped her assassination attempt on Tarquin in #756, before he knew that Tarquin was evil.
  • Explosive Runes have been a running gag earlier in the comics.
  • Haley's comment in Panel 2 refers to the Azurite Resistance that she had founded and left behind, and that in #893, she learned it had been destroyed in #827.
