Screaming in panic gives a big penalty on your Move Silently check. Mostly since screaming and moving silently are oxymoronic.

Author Notes:

Note that in panel 6, The Summariser uses three exclamation marks. This is not for simple emphasis, since using multiple exclamation marks is not a valid way to denote emphasis.

Instead, this is a reference to the works of Terry Pratchett, specifically his Discworld novels. Pterry is of the firm belief that stacking exclamation marks is "the sure sign of an insane mind" - and, indeed, in several of his books, the sanity of characters can be measured by the number of exclamation marks they use. Three is getting there. For more on the exclamation-stacking phenomenon, visit the relevant page on the Terry Pratchett wiki.

Xavius: Whew. Looks like I got out of that one!

Xavius: Probably should try to avoid being caught again, though.

Xavius: I wonder why Bob didn't believe me. I mean, I was using my justifying powers and all.

Xavius: Unless... Oh dear. That is not good.

Xavius: That is bad! That is very, very bad! And not good!


Xavius: Wait a sec. Wasn't I trying to be stealthy or something?

Jane: Give me one good reason why I shouldn't blast you with Disintegrate right now.
Xavius: Ah, that's right. I remember now. Eep.
