Panel 1: In the dining hall of whatever university residence these people live in, Marie and the gentleman with the curly black hair carry their trays over to a table. The dining hall, like most of the rooms in this place, has brick walls.

Man: Who says you live next door to Satan?

Marie: Uh...girl with poofy red hair.

Panel 2: Marie and the man place their food on the table. The chairs in this dining hall are tall, with wood and leather backs imprinted with crests.

Man: Oh, Barbara. Yeah...see, she's an English Ph.D student, and all English Ph.D students eventually go insane.

Panel 3: Marie, sitting, picks up her burger and goes to take a bite. The man sits beside her.

Man: Barbara's in her sixth year. She sees ghosts in the laundry room and sings Puccini arias to her furniture.

Panel 4: A voice issues from under the table, startling Marie. Presumably, the voice belongs to Barbara.

Barbara: They're not Puccini; they're Mozart!

Ah yes: and every Thursday, she eats lunch on the floor.

Alt-Text: Personal experience? With the insanity of upper-year English students?
