Man's Inhumanity To Man

Cast: Tycho, Gabe, Person

Transcript Edit

Panel 1

{Tycho is stood in the foreground on the phone. Gabe is stood in the background, putting a fork into the toaster.}
Tycho: Hello. I'm calling to cancel the service that you signed me up for without my knowledge. Some kind of account protection?
Person: {phone} I understand completely, sir. But are you aware that, if you were to die - say, in a suspicious accident - Sears would continue making payments on your new toaster?

Panel 2

{Gabe is being electrocuted and is now a silhouette. A bright light is in the background.}
Tycho: There are no payments. I paid cash. It's my toaster.
Person: {phone} But in that case, who would not make the no payments? Think about the undebt you'd be leaving your family. Do you really want to burden them with not that?

Panel 3

{Gabe has disappeared. An outline of Gabe's body is on the wall. Toast has popped out of the toaster.}
Tycho: Wow. Does that shit actually work on some people?
Person: {phone} It doesn't not work. Are you sure you don't still want to not cancel?
