Cast: Tycho, Gabe

Transcript Edit

Panel 1

{Tycho and Gabe are stood facing each other. Tycho is holding a backup drive.}
Tycho: The backup drive smells like burned hair, but that's just the backup. You saved everything locally, right?
Gabe: That made no sense to me.
Tycho: You save each comic twice, right? Correct? Here, and somewhere else.
Gabe: That's a really good idea.

Panel 2

{Tycho puts the backup away and points at Gabe. Gabe raises his hands in the air.}
Tycho: {angrily} Yeah, it's called "backing up," you fucker! What did you think you were doing?
Gabe: {angrily} I don't know, I figured there was something special in there, that did the backup... ing... Fuck, I don't know!
Gabe: Listen, it said "Backup" on the box!

Panel 3

{Gabe lowers his hand and points at Tycho's face. Tycho puts his hand on the front of his pants.}
Gabe: {angrily} Look, I don't jack into your "mainframes," asshole! I don't connect to the proxy! Just FIX the HARD DRIVE!
Tycho: {sarcastically} Oh, sure! I'll just take this melted drive, and rub it on my dick until our files grow back!
