Transcription

[[Plank the grey alien is covering his groin with both hands and looking distressed. He is dressed in nothing but a vest. Pi the alien is climbing down from the open vent high above. He is wearing a shirt, pants, and a hat that is somewhat too large for his head.]]
plank: QUICK! i NEED EMERGENCY PANTS BEFORE THE HUMANS SEE MY PRIVATES!
pi: YOU DON'T HAVE ANY 'PRIVATES!' WE'RE GENDERLESS!

[[A closer shot of both aliens is shown, depicting only their heads and shoulders. Plank still looks distressed. Pi is unimpressed.]]
Plank: WELL, THEY DON'T NEED TO BE SEEING SEEING YOU-KNOW-WHAT DOWN YOU-KNOW-WHERE ANYWAY!
Pi: WHATEVER. MAYBE WE CAN FIX THE OLD PAIR. WHERE ARE THEY?

[[The view pulls back to a waist-to-head shot. Plank is smiling rather sheepishly, and has one finger pointed upward to indicate that direction. Pi has his hand held half across his face, his expression one of exasperation -- well, or maybe disgust. Or both. My money's on both.]]
Plank: UM ... HALF UP THERE AND HALF DOWN HERE.

[[The final panel is an over-the-shoulder shot. Pi is shown with his head pulled down towards his shoulders and his face furrowed with anger. Behind him and off to the right Plank is seen wrapping a piece of cloth around his waist. It looks like a kilt, or school uniform skirt.]]
Pi: JUST WRAP THAT OLD BLANKET AROUND YOU.
Plank: SO DOES THAT MAKE IT A SKIRT OR A KILT? THIS SEX STUFF IS TOO CONFUSING....
