Transcript Edit

Panel 1

Nale: You'll love the other new members, one is a—
Julia's Friend (off-panel): HEY GREENHILT, WAIT UP!

Panel 2

Nale: Greenhilt?? My brother and his stooges are here? We're not ready! We didn't even find an anvil!

Panel 3

Nale: OK, Sabine, shift to fiend form! Thog, ready your axe! Pompey, cast—

Panel 4

Julia's Friend: Greenhilt, I said wait up!
Julia: Well hurry it up, I'm late for Necromancy 101.

Panel 5

Julia: Gods, did you see the outfit Sandra is wearing today?
Julia's Friend: I know! I like, would never be caught dead in a stars-and-planets wizard robe.
Nale: That, um...
Nale: That is not Roy Greenhilt.

Panel 6

Sabine: Maybe it really IS him, and he's just wearing one of those magic belts that change gender.
Nale: Don't be dense, honey, that would be pointless and self-indulgent.
Sabine: I guess you're right.
Thog: thog liked it.

Panel 7

Pompey: Wait, so the guys you are out to beat include the brother of Julia Greenhilt, the most popular girl in school? Weird, it's like evil serendipity.

Panel 8

Nale: Pompey, I think you're on to something. Fate has dropped the winning move right in our laps, my newest lackey.
Nale: Forget the old plan—we're going to set a trap for the Order of the Stick, and we'll use Roy's sister as the perfect bait!

Panel 9

Thog glares at Nale.

Panel 10

Nale: Sigh.
Nale: Yes, the new plan will STILL involve rocket skates.
Thog: YAY!
