That Inauspicious Event

Cast: Tycho, Gabe

Transcript Edit

Panel 1

{Tycho is stood behind Gabe in Gabe's room. Gabe is packing away clothes into a suitcase.}
Tycho: Where are you going? You can't go. Doom 3 comes out tomorrow.
Gabe: I have to go to some family reunion.

Panel 2

{Scene change. Gabe's silhouette in his bed, wide awake.}
Gabe: {voice-over} Every night I lie awake, wondering how to smuggle in my hardware and reassemble it on the premises. Even if I did, I'm pretty sure the bait shop isn't to going have Doom tucked between the nightcrawlers and ancient Hostess snacks.
Gabe: {voice-over} Everyone in the family has to wear a shirt with a giant bald eagle on it.

Panel 3

{Back to Gabe and Tycho. Tycho now has his hand on Gabe's shoulder, as Gabe closes his eyes.}
Tycho: There's a lake, right? Maybe you'll drown.
Gabe: God willing.
