Elan: When we started this adventure, would Roy have ever let his guard down like that?
Elan: Did he trust any of us to know what to do without his constant supervision?
- Panel 7
Elan: Stumbling off in a drunken stupor to pass out in his bunk is the ultimate vote of confidence!

Durkon: Tha's a really good point.
Haley: Yeah, remember when he used to never even sleep?
Belkar: That was because of us? I just thought he had an undiagnosed medical condition.

Minrah: I'm so confused.
- Panel 10
Haley: I'm trying to figure out if you just fixed that for Roy on purpose.
- Panel 11

- Roy did not trust Haley, Belkar, or Elan to guard the party while the spellcasters rested, as portrayed early in the comic in #14, "Why Roy is Always Tired".
