Cast: Tycho, Gabe, Fish

Transcript Edit

Panel 1

{Tycho is lying in his bed, looking extremely ill. Gabe is stood at the other side looking down at him.}
Tycho: Hey, Typhoid Mary.
Gabe: I don't really understand that reference.
Tycho: It doesn't matter. Did you bring me some soup? If you don't have soup, get out.

Panel 2

{Gabe holds a bag filled with water and a tropical fish. Tycho looks at the bag.}
Gabe: Even better, my friend. I saw you were laid up, figured you wouldn't be going to E3, and moved your ticket on eBay. Then, I used the money to buy you this sweet tropical fish.
Tycho: How thoughtful.

Panel 3

{Gabe leaves. The bag is on Tycho's bed cover.}
Tycho: Fish, I guess I should tell you now. We don't own an aquarium.
