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

[[The wedding reception. Patty, appearing sad, looks down, with one arm crossed in front of her. Next to her, Dexter looks up and away from her, sad and perhaps a bit embarrassed, and scratches the back of his head.]]
Dexter: Okay, okay. I'm sorry I asked. You don't have--
Patty: I got married once. Or... I was _supposed_ to.

[[Patty's face is in closeup. Her expression is more neutral, less sad.]]
Patty: He... was really special, and the only man I ever loved. But as you probably already know, I'm not the most open with sharing my feelings. I did something very stupid. Naive, careless, cruel, and stupid. And I drove him away.

[[Patty is seen in closeup profile. Her one visible eye is closed tightly, as if holding back tears. Dexter looks at her sadly.]]
Patty: That was on the day before our wedding. I tried to call him and apologize, but he never answered. So the next day I stood at the altar for eight hours, hoping he'd forgive me, humiliated and ashamed.

[[Patty turns away from Dexter; we see her back. Dexter looks at her, still sad.]]
Patty: I don't begrudge Nick and Ki their happiness. I hope they have tons of it. But I don't _deserve_ any, and every wedding I attend is a bitter reminder of my own selfishness.
