Cast Edit

Transcript Edit

Panel 1

Stage Manager (off-panel): Hey!
MitD (singing): ♪Gonna find my pal the paladin!♪♪

Panel 2

Stage Manager: Where have you been? We've been looking all over for you!
MitD: I didn't do it! And if I did do it, I didn't know I could do it until I did it!

Panel 3

Stage Manager: What? No, we need you to pull something.
MitD: Oh! OK, but I should warn you that I'm a lot better at pushing than pulling. Pulling has all those tricky parts where you hold something AND move it.
MitD: At the same time!

Panel 4

Stage Manager: Just stand here and when I point to you, pull the rope.
Hobgoblin Priest with Orange Symbol: So we're just waiting on the Supreme Leader?
Hobgoblin Cleric #2: He'll be here soon. He's in his study.

Panel 5

Redcloak looks in a mirror.

Panel 6

Redcloak: It'll all be worth it. You'll see.

Panel 7

Redcloak climbs up some stairs.

Panel 8

Redcloak: I'm ready.
Hobgoblin Priest with Orange Symbol: OK, people, we're ready. Let's all make history.
Stage Manager: Now!
MitD: Now?
Stage Manager: Now!

Panel 9

MitD pulls the rope, "squeak, squeak"

Panel 10

Redcloak stands on a balcony.

Panel 11

Ten thousand goblins look up at the balcony.

Panel 12

MitD: Listen to all those cheers.
MitD: I guess they really appreciate a good pull.
Demon-Roach: Don't we all, kid? Don't we all?

Trivia Edit

  • Curtains, Slang. the end; death, especially by violence.
  • In panels 5 and 6, Redcloak looks in the mirror and talks to his image. His brother, Right-Eye, lost his left eye to the Sapphire Guard. Redcloak lost his own right eye to O-Chul in #655. Thus when Redcloak looks in the mirror and the missing eye is reversed, he looks just like his own brother, to whom he is speaking.
  • This is the first appearance of the Hobgoblin Cleric with Orange Symbol and the unfortunately named Hobgoblin Cleric #2.
