[Comic for Friday, December 20, 2013]


[["Nega-Nick" and Trudy are standing outside the car, talking very quietly to each other. Trudy folds her arms across herself in a protective manner. "Nega-Nick", meanwhile, seems annoyed.]]
Trudy: (snarling) I don't know what that is that happens when we touch, but I don't LIKE it. I don't want to deal with it on this trip. Got it?
Nega-Nick: Got it.

[[Our view closes in on Trudy's face. She seems angry.]]
Trudy: I don't know how we see inside each other's heads when that happens, but I don't like it. I don't feel in CONTROL. [To herself:] And each time, I feel like I'm about to LOSE myself.

[[The shot pulls out so we can see Nega-Nick's reaction]]
Trudy: So I don't care if I'm about to fall over a cliff. You keep your hands to yourself.
Nega-Nick: [Annoyed] Got it. You can plummet to your doom.

[[Trudy turns to walk away, and we see Nega-Nick behind her]]
Trudy: And for God's sake, Nick. Zip up your fly. You're in public.
[[Nega-Nick snarls]]
Nega-Nick's Alien: What's that expression...? Your operation is smooth...?
