|Random Note to Non-Canadians: Swiss Chalet is a real restaurant chain that does indeed offer only one vegetarian option. The particular Swiss Chalet in which Marie and Rahim are sitting exists (I snapped a quick reference photo the last time I was in to pick up take-out). The quarter-chicken dinner is fatty, greasy, and very fun to eat. Consider yourselves Informed.|

|Panel 1: Marie and Rahim sit across from each other at Swiss Chalet, menus on the table in front of them.|
Marie: Please don't do this, Rahim.
Rahim: If you really don't want me to, I won't.
Rahim: But if you ever change your mind, you know where to find me. The time doesn't matter. Knock on my door at four a.m. if you have to.
Panel 3: Marie is crying.
Rahim: ...Hey. You okay?
Panel 4: Marie, still leaking tears, leans back in her seat.
Marie: Yes. And yet oddly, I'm also weeping on a photo of the quarter-chicken dinner.
Rahim: Maybe you should go vegetarian.
Alt-Text: No, no, NO...don't go vegetarian. The quarter-chicken dinner is AWESOME.
