[Comic for Monday, August 21, 2017]


[[Fooker and Sharon walk abreast down a hallway aboard the Grey ship. Trudy just happens to be coming from the opposite direction. Behind the point where they are about to meet is a circular, open doorway to a darkened room.]]
Fooker: [Looking at his watch] Do we have time to grab a quick bite before today's first mission?
Sharon: I think so... [Noticing Trudy approaching] Hey, Trudy, have you seen patty this morning?

Trudy: [Suspiciously] No, I haven't. Trish said something about her never coming to bed last night.
Sharon: [Exchanging a worried glance with Fooker] That's odd... I hope everything's OK with her...

Fooker: [Leading Sharon onward, but turning back to address Trudy] Well, we don't have time to go looking for her. If PJ's a no-show, I'm drafting you as her replacement.
Trudy: [Annoyed] Swell...

[[Trudy follows Fooker and Sharon, who are now out of frame.]]
Trudy: At least promise me this one will be relatively uneventful.
Fooker: [Off-panel] I solemnly swear I have no control over that whatsoever.
[[In the darkened doorway beyond, we see Victor Brown, Nick's "heckler" from his "all-hands meeting", who has been hiding in the shadows, eavesdropping on their conversation.]]

Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails. — 1 Corinthians 13:4-8a (NIV)
