Cast Edit

Transcript Edit

Panel 1

Belkar is led away by two guards.
Belkar: Hey, Sweetwings, so what time are you coming down to discuss my defense strategy?
Celia: Hmmm. I'm not sure. I'll surprise you.

Panel 2

Celia: The surprise being, of course, that I'm not going to be defending him.
Roy: Heh.

Panel 3

Roy: So, does that mean you're heading back to school right away?
Celia: I'm in no rush. Class doesn't resume until next week.

Panel 4

The Lawyers walk out, Phil Rodriguez carrying the giant boot.
Mr. Rodriguez: I'm sorry you lost the case, Mr. Jones.
Mr. Jones: Actually, I'm fairly certain that the transcript will show that Phil Rodriguez was the lawyer of record for this trial.

Panel 5

Mr. Rodriguez: Aww, man! That means my record will fall to 0-147.
Mr. Jones: Naturally, I remain perfect at 5-0.

Panel 6

Hinjo: See? I knew everything would work out OK.
Vaarsuvius: "OK"? I do not see how being made to stand trial for a capital crime ever consitutes "OK".

Panel 7

Hinjo: Yeah, but the point is that the legal system worked. You were acquitted of all charges.
Roy: Wow, Hinjo, you should work for the tourism board.
Roy: "Come to sunny Azure City: You'll be found innocent—eventually!"

Panel 8

Hinjo: Hey, don't blame the whole city for what the Sapphire Guard did to you.
Hinjo: Most people who live here don't even know we exist.
Hinjo: (Which, incidentally, makes it awfully difficult to redeem these "Sapphire Guard discount coupons" my uncle keeps giving us.)
Hinjo holds a coupon which reads, "6 sp off"

Panel 9

Hinjo: Look, I know a great inn, away from the castle. Let me pay for your room tonight, and tomorrow I'll show you around the city.
Roy: Hmmm, I don't know...

Panel 10

Elan: Please, Roy? Can we please? Can we? Please? Please? Pleeeeeeeeeese?
Roy: OK, you can go with Hinjo.

Panel 11

Elan: Wooo!! We're gonna see the city! We're gonna see the city!!

Panel 12

Elan: I wanna see the sailboats! Can I see the sailboats? Ooo, and I wanna see the gardens, and the stores, and the big [fancy?] buildings. And do you guys have a theater? [I want to] see a theater too. And then [can I] have a lollipop?
Roy: I consider this my token revenge for our incarceration.
