Transcript Edit

Panel 1

Elan (off-panel): Whuh? What's goin' on, guys?
Rookie: That's the killer, men! Take him down, no mercy!

Panel 2

The black officer bull rushes Elan and the and female officer jumps through the air. The black officer crashes onto Elan, sending skulls and the Chief's head flying, "POW!"

Panel 3

Elan: No, wait, there's been some sort of mis—
The officer whacks Elan in the face, "whack!"
Cop with Black Skin: The only mistake I see is you thinking you could get away with murder, you cop-killing piece of crap!

Panel 4

Thog bisects an officer, "schquirlkt!" and kicks another in the face.
Thog: yay, resisting arrest is fun!

Nale (thinking): But you've been practicing for weeks now... You have the perfect words to convince him that you are Elan.

Panel 9

Nale (thinking): You have an answer for every possible line of inquiry. You will convince him, via sheer willpower, of your identity.
Nale (thinking): This will be your finest moment as an evil mastermind. Let the verbal game of cat and mouse commence!

Panel 10

Nale: Roy, I'm—
Roy: No time, Elan! We need to help those cops subdue Thog.

Panel 11

Nale: You know, where I'm from, a little suspicion about one's true identity is considered good manners.
Belkar: Hey, Elan.
Belkar: Looks like somebody isn't getting their security deposit back...
