- Panel 1
Guard: FALSE ALARM!
- Panel 2
Haley: Also, General Tarquin was just here and told us to tell you to tell us where you're keeping a prisoner named Ian Starshine, and then to never mention that you did to anyone else, ever.
Haley: Oh, and your manual is a pack of treasonous lies being spread by, I dunno, let's say angry separatist muskrats.
Guard: Really? OK, then.
Clerk: Let's see... he's in Cell Block G, down the hall to the right, just inside the anti-magic zone.
- Panel 3
The effects of the Potion of Glibness fade as Haley steps into the Anti-Magic Zone.
Elan: Uh oh, Haley! They'll raise the alarm if you step into an anti-magic zone!
Haley: It's not an enchantment, Elan. The magic is in my words, not their belief.
- Panel 4
Haley picks the lock to Cell Block G.
Haley: Heck, unless this takes more than a half-hour, we should be able to fib our way back out, too.
Haley: Wait here at the door and whistle if there are any guards coming.
- Panel 5
Haley walks in to the cell block.
Haley: Uh, hi! I don't suppose any of you know a prisoner named Ian—
- Panel 6

- Panel 8
Haley embraces her father, at speed.
- Panel 9
Belkar: Why is she hugging Crazy Old Prison Guy?
Roy: No clue.
- Panel 10
Belkar: Blech. I guess vicious little parasites don't bother her anymore.
Roy: Yeah, we've all gotten used to you by now. But don't change the subject.
