Panel 1: In the title panel of this Sunday-style colour comic, Casey and Marie stand back to back, eyeing each other sidelong. Casey is standing against a black background labelled "West of Bathurst"; Marie is standing against a white background labelled "by Kari Maaren."

Panel 2: Marie is at a bus stop. Casey approaches, clearly meaning to wait for the same bus.

Casey: Hi.

Marie: Hi.

Marie [thinks]: Oh God.

Panel 3: They stand there.

Marie [thinks]: Don't engage me in conversation! Please, please don't do that.

Panel 4:

Marie [thinks]: You're going to apologise again, and I'm going to lose it, and it will be awkward, and I'll want to run away.

Panel 5: Casey reaches into his pocket.

[thinks]: Here it comes. Wait for it...waaait for it...

Panel 6:

Casey: Cookie?

Marie [screams very loudly]: I TOLD YOU I NEEDED TIME!

Panel 7: Casey's eyes are extremely wide. Marie face-palms.

Casey: Aaargh.

Marie [thinks]: Clearly, my smoothness knows no bounds.

Alt-Text: Well, come on...the cookie had subtext.
