Is Sean trying to win over Alis? With no competition?

She is is frantically trying to save her squishy.

Looking at Alis' face though, she seems to not be in need of saving.
But it's still a nice thing Sean is doing.

Also, Alis might want a go at the Plague doctors herself.

People are like toothpaste? Sounds like a concussion.
Techhead (Guest) edit delete reply
People are like toothpaste... you can't squeeze them back into the tube.

Let's test that theory by squeezing Leio into the tiny tube.

I'm betting part of Leio's skull has been turned into toothpaste... ;D

Considering that Cara probably has a concussion, she's still remarkably clear headed.

People are like toothpaste, good at brushing teeth.

What is Ali's doing?

Greeb
Trying to die of boredom before she dies of asphyxiation?
Sheela edit delete reply
Sheela
Watching people frantically trying to save her, without actually knowing if she *needs* saving!

They could have asked her, y'know ?
Maybe she's saved herself already ?
Zombie Pancake edit delete reply
I've been rather curious as to why she's so disinterested. It's rather out of character.
Mister Flames edit delete reply
This is something she's dealt with all of her life. She might just be trying to keep steady so she doesn't stress out and die from anoxia.
LR (Guest) edit delete reply
that's uninterested, not disinterested. The latter is more like having no personal stake in something. Which is pretty useful for someone like, say, a judge. Then again, disinterested as a word seems to be disintegrating, so maybe my promotion of its old meaning is hopeless.

No I mean there's a noise on her panel.
Sheela edit delete reply

I think that's from Sean messing with Cara's stuff.

Are those patches I spot at the bottom of panel 7?
Sheela edit delete reply

Money, I think.

That face. Something's about to go down.

Hope there s something besides condoms in that tube, like a patch.

Sean is fixated.

Hey, you can't mess about when you need to save your squishy !

The scale of the tube seems to shift massively in frame 6. Went from a cigarette to a Cuban cigar.
Eli (Guest) edit delete reply
I think it's mostly just a forced-perspective thing - I'm pretty sure that the viewing angle is placed very close to the open ends of the capsule, making it look a lot wider/longer.

I was referring to the diameter of the lid, much bigger than Sean's thumb.
...(RockB) edit delete reply

I agree. Compared with the fingers and thumbs handling it, the diameter of the tube more than doubled.
Rezima (Guest) edit delete reply
Seems Alis is running out of steam, looks a bit low on energy without the patch to help her process oxygen

That is pretty much how it feels. You feel lethargic, and your body slows down, and if you're sitting, you just drift and your eyelids get heavy, then you're asleep.

Except Alis won't wake up.

Yes, that's speaking form experience.

Aw great, we thought it was some kind of electronic beacon thing, but it's just useful papers. nicely done, view. nobody else takes me on a ride like you and your crazy writing wagon

Alis is not amused. She definitely knows something the others don't. :D
The Saprophyte (Guest) edit delete reply
People are like Toothpaste....

Generally mildly abrasive but still do things that keep you smiling?
Sheela edit delete reply
Sheela
You can't squeeze them back into the tube.
TeeKay edit delete reply
TeeKay
I'm having trouble seeing how that's relevant here...

I was thinking it might be more along the lines of "there's always that last little bit left if you squeeze hard enough" :P

This is pretty much what Cara meant, yeah.
...(RockB) edit delete reply

*ggg* Good one, even if that's probably/maybe not what Cara meant.
