|Panel 1: Rahim
is standing in what looks like some kind of reception. He's wearing a
nametag and (very atypically) a tie. The other people in the room are
wearing nametags too.|
Rahim: July eighteenth.
Panel 2: Rahim is talking on his cell phone.
Rahim: Casey? It's Rahim. When you get this message, could you check on Marie? I just remembered it was the anniversary of her freak out.
Rahim: I'm stuck at a conference until late, but call me when you've found her. Don't worry, though; I'm sure you'll be able to handle the situation.
Panel 4: In Casey's room, Marie is still sitting on the bed, staring at nothing. Barbara is beside her. Casey stands nearby, staring down at his cell phone.
Casey: Or, you know, not.
Barbara: Eh...I find that paralysed indecision is actually usually the way to go.
Alt-Text: Huge conferences that insist on their participants wearing name-tags are infuriating. It's like..."Here: identify yourself so we'll all know whom we're ignoring."
