Comic #2543

1 {scene: exterior, Roswell, New Mexico, 1947}
1 Young Adam: So to really verify the myth we still need to kill our own grandfathers?
1 Young Jamie: Yes. But that would be immoral.
2 Young Adam: In ways that going back in time and sleeping with our own grandmothers isn't?
2 Young Jamie: That was consensual.
3 Young Adam: Ah. So if we get our grandfathers to agree to be killed...
4 Young Jamie: How on Earth will we convince them to do that?
4 Young Adam: They're scientists, aren't they?! For science!!

Parting view

Except as I said, not nearly red enough.
