|Panel 1: Marie is meeting with her therapist. She is quite antsy and keeps looking behind her at the clock on the wall.|
Therapist: Marie, you've been coming to see me for half a year, and you haven't once relaxed.
Marie: Why should I? It isn't helping. Can I go now?
Therapist: Perhaps it isn't helping because you won't let it.
Marie: What? That's ridiculous. I've answered all your questions. I think your clock is slow.
Therapist: Let's try an experiment. I want you to tell me one question I've asked you, along with the answer you gave.
Marie: That's easy. There was that one about...that thing...with the stuff...and I said...
Panel 4: Marie is kneeling on the chair, staring at the clock.
Marie: Seriously, your clock is running backwards.
Therapist: I'm suspecting it's not alone.
Alt-Text: It's one of those special clocks they have in classrooms occupied by professors incapable of speaking in anything other than a monotone.
