I'd originally planned to just joke about increased prices for PCs, relative to the rest of the world (3 cp versus 3 gp). But when I was writing panel 5, I slipped in a note about "easy monthly payments", and the rest grew from there.

Transcript:

Jane: Hello! We'd like to book three rooms for the night!
Bartender: All right. That'll be 3 cp a night.
Bob: And it's gone again?!

Fred: So... what's the plan?
Jane: We'll figure out our next location, pick up necessary equipment, and then rest up here 'til tomorrow.

Jane: On the way to the next Greyzone, we level-grind a little, since we're such incompetant PCs right now.
Bartender: Did you just say "PCs"?

Jane: Yeah, I did. We're PCs.
Bartender: Ah, then you receive our special Adventurers' Rate!

Bartender: Just seven easy monthly payments of 3gp per night, plus postage and handling!

Bartender: And, if you buy by credit card, you'll receive a second Ab-King Pro, absolutely free of additional charges!

Bartender: Call the number on your screen within the next ten minutes, and we'll also send you an assortment of handy instructional videos. If you're not satisified with our product, simply return it for a full refund of the purchase price!

Jane: It's okay! You can stop trying to sell me stuff!
Bartender: Oh. Sorry. ...are you sure you wouldn't like a complimentary gift pack for the first 100 callers?
