|Panel 1: Marie wanders discolately through the Davies foyer.|
Marie [thinks]: Christmas...
Voice From Off Panel: *Sigh*
Panel 2: Rahim has entered the foyer.
Marie: You're stuck here too, huh?
Rahim: Not "stuck." Certainly not "stuck."
Rahim: I am "staying voluntarily in this frigid wasteland because I'm dirt poor and my parents are spending the next two weeks in Florida." Not "stuck"!
Marie: You're lying to yourself too, huh?
Rahim: Not "lying"...
Alt-Text: He's not bitter, either.
