The GPF site will undergo routine, scheduled maintenance this Thursday, June 27th, from 10pm to midnight EDT (2am to 4am UTC on Friday the 28th). A two-hour window has been scheduled for this event, but it will hopefully not take that long. During this maintenance, the site will not be available and will appear offline. Due to the timing, there is a chance that Friday's scheduled comic update may be delayed. We apologize in advance for this inconvenience.

Transcription

[[Nicole and Fred discuss in Nick's kitchen: Fred wants to sue Trent. NOTE: this is a colored strip.]]

Nicole: Fred, let me go to the heart of my point: you're not a U.S. citizen, so you have no rights in this country.
Fred: Oh, I *am* a citizen.

Nicole: How can *that* be?
Fred: Just like you, I was born here. Ergo, I'm a citizen.
Nicole: But you don't have a birth certificate or social security number!

[[Nicole is rolling here eyes]]
Fred: Oh, I *have* a social security number. I couldn't have gotten my job at GPF without one.
Nicole: How did *you* get a social security number?

[[Fooker is in front of his computer, with Fred onhis shoulder]]
Narrator: Back in early 1999...
Fooker: There. I hacked the SSA, so you have an SSN. Still don't know *why* though...
Fred: So, you're useful for something after all...
