Panel 2

Belkar: And good news for fans of cryptograms.

Panel 3

Roy: My gods! Haley! I am so sorry! This is all my fault!
Haley: Qmdg obors?

Panel 5

Roy: I kept telling her to shut up, because she was making fun of me. And now she can't speak! She's clearly suffering from some sort of curse that I brought upon her!

Panel 8

Vaarsuvius: Although, I suppose there would never have been an explosion in the first place if you had refrained from pretending to be—
Roy: I think I said NEVER. MIND. THEN.
Belkar: Could you hug Haley again for a moment? I need to capture the mental image for later.

Trivia Edit

  • The translation of Haley's lines is:
    • Panel 3: It means my speech is all funny-sounding.
    • Panel 4: Come again?
    • Panel 6: Can someone please get weepy transsexual off me?
  • In the second panel, Belkar hints to the readers that Haley's speech is in cryptogram, and not just random gibberish.
