Comic #946

1 Spanners: Serron! I can't believe you did that!
1 Serron: What?! I just went to the toilet!
2 Spanners: You put barbecue sauce on Paris' head!
2 Serron: Not recently! It must have been someone else!
3 Spanners: Someone else?! Oh, right, there just happens to be an extra person on board who looks exactly like you. I don't think so!
4 Iki Piki: {looking at large empty area where the dead xenomorph was} Hey... where'd the body of the xenomorph go...?

My original script had Serron answering Spanners' accusation of pouring barbecue sauce on to Paris' head with a simple, "Never!"

But as I put this together, I realised there was a much funnier response.

I also think it's interesting that in eleven sentences worth of dialogue here, only one of them ends in a simple full stop. The rest all end in either an exclamation mark or question mark. Now that's true dramatic writing.

2014-11-06 Rerun commentary: I made a mistake in the original annotation! The last sentence should clearly have been: "Now that's true dramatic writing!!"

Why did nobody pull me up on that? I'm amazed!
