Panel 1: In the title panel of this Sunday-style colour comic, Steve and Barbara face off against each other with swords. Steve's is labelled "West of Bathurst" and Barbara's "by Kari Maaren."

Panel 2: Steve and Barbara are arguing in the Davies College basement.

Steve: That's the stupidest thing I've ever heard.

Barbara: Oh, really?

Panel 3:

Steve: Are you completely without reason? Why would you even consider--

Barbara: "Without reason"? You're just making stuff up.

Panel 4:

Steve: My position is the only one any sane person could possibly take.

Barbara: Clearly, your brain has been devoured by rodents.

Panel 5:

Steve: Whereas you have the mental capacity of a dandelion.

Barbara: Albeit one that hasn't lost all touch with reality.

Panel 6:

Steve: You're a monster! A crazy, reckless monster!

Barbara: You make me want to smash my head against the wall until my eyes fall out.

Panel 7: Casey and Morgan stand nearby, witnessing all this. Casey is smirking.

Casey: He thinks "Skye Boat Song" should be played in "B flat"; she thinks it's better in "A."

Morgan: Well, okay, then.

Alt-Text: Actually, if Wendy--the soprano in their band--is singing the lead, they should probably be playing the song somewhere between the key of D and the key of G. Reg, the alto, might go down to C. A and Bb are both either a bit too high or a bit too low. Steve and Barbara are, in fact, arguing about the TWO WORST POSSIBLE KEYS in which a woman can sing this song. My characters never listen to me.
