Panel 1: In a little basement nook in Davies College, there is a couch. Above it hangs a painting that I have always thought of as "Pick-Up Sticks" because, well, that's what it looks like: a bunch of pick-up sticks against a black background. Marie is on the couch, her head on her knees. She has taken her elf wig off. Casey, still in his Hallowe'en costume, approaches her.

Casey: Too much beer?

Marie: Hardly any.

Panel 2: Marie sits up and puts a hand to her head. Casey sits beside her.

Marie: I...don't feel well. I'm all hot and cold and wobbly. I almost passed out...

Casey: Sounds like the flu.

Panel 3: Marie stands up and heads back towards her room. Casey puts a steadying hand on her arm.

Marie: I can't get the flu now; I have too much to do! It isn't convenient!

Casey: Is it ever convenient?

Panel 4:

Never waste your logic on a person with a temperature.

Casey: I'll try to keep that in mind.

Alt-Text: Once, when *I* had a temperature, I thought--well, I'll save that story for next week's plotline. At any rate, Marie has a point.
