Panel 1: Rahim and Barbara stand outside Marie's room in Davies College. Barbara is carrying a thick spiral-bound document.

Rahim: Marie? Come've been cooped up in there for ages.

Panel 2:

Marie [from inside the room]: I'm working.

Rahim: You're not working.

Marie: You can't know that.

Rahim: Do we have to break down the door?

Panel 3:

Barbara: If you come out, I'll give you hope by showing you a complete draft of my thesis.

Panel 4: Marie immediately comes out of the room. Barbara holds the thesis out towards her.

Marie: May...may I touch it?

Barbara [to Rahim]: Grad students: you just have to know how to talk to them.

Alt-Text: Try showing a lower-year grad student a completed thesis at some point. There will be a lot of "ooh"ing and "ah"ing and perhaps some genuflection. Upper-year grad students will just cry.
