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

[[Socrates has just surprised Fred by calling him "brother". Trish, Patty, and Dexter are attempting to get more information.]]
Trish: B-brother! You m-mean like --
Socrates: [interrupting] Comrade. Compatriot. Alas, we are not genetically linked, save for some distant shared ancestors.

Dexter: [pointing at Socrates] So you ARE a slime mold, then.
Socrates: "Slime mold"? Oh, yes. That's what you've been calling "Fred", isn't it? I guess by some crude comparison that seems appropriate.

Socrates: In truth, however, you planet has no closer analogous species, and your "slime molds" are far to primitive to make a true comparison.
Patty: [wide-eyed] Excuse me, but did you just say, "OUR planet"?

Socrates: Yes. I believe your species would calls us extra-terrestrials, or more succinctly, "aliens".
Fred: Za-wha...?
