Friday on the next Friday.  Today, we say goodbye to Rahim and Barbara, not to mention Barbara's Sherlock Holmes outfit.  As I was drawing this comic, I felt rather as Marie looked.

I've posted two comics today; if you missed the Thursday one, you may need to click on "Previous."  I would advise you to do so, as Thursday's comic is Casey's last.  With the exit of Rahim and Barbara as well, Marie is, once again, left alone.

Panel 1: Somewhere in Davies College, Marie is standing with Rahim and Barbara. Barbara is in her Sherlock Holmes outfit.

Rahim: I guess it's time--

Marie: I don't want to say goodbye!

Panel 2: Marie begins to cry.

Marie: I don't have any friends in Lethbridge. I should never have taken that job. I--

Rahim: Marie.

Panel 3: Barbara puts an arm around Marie.

Rahim: We'll always be here for you.

Barbara: That's elementary.

Panel 4:

Marie: You wore that outfit just so you could say that, didn't you?

Barbara: That's elementary too.

Alt-Text: What pleases me is that this is clearly something Barbara would do; it doesn't seem jarring at all that she would dress up as Sherlock Holmes to say goodbye to Marie.
