|Panel 1: Casey, whistling, walks down a Davies College corridor.|
Panel 2: He is passed by Baldwin, his arm in a cast, and Barbara.
Panel 3: He stares incredulously as he is passed by Marie, who has two black eyes, and Rahim.
Casey: I was only away for six hours!
Frankie [comes up behind him]: Lucky you.
Alt-Text: The thing about Casey is that though he owns a cell phone and goes through periods in which he diligently keeps it charged and uses it frequently to talk to his mom, he also has a tendency to forget its existence, neglect to charge the battery for weeks at a time, and leave it languishing in a pocket until laundry day, when he washes it. So, yes, Rahim did call Casey to tell him about Marie's little misadventure, but as Casey's phone was going through the rinse cycle at the time, he missed the call.
