Ha! Florence and Helix thought I was nuts to go back after this nickel.

But despite being mad at me, I know they're going to drop the rope down to pull me out.

Yes, Sir. Any hour now.

How's the work going?

All done. Things went a lot smoother with you down the hole.

All part of being a great manager, Helix.

I know when to stay out of the way and let the people do the work.

Wow! I hope that someday I'm as smart as you are!

Someone is driving up.

Ack! It's the police! DUCK!

Florence is just standing there. Why doesn't she run?

We'll need to teach her you're supposed to hide from the police.

You can do it. I'm still hurting from when I taught her to fetch.

They're talking, the policeman looks happy. Now he's leaving. Florence must have fed him quite a line.

She might even be better than you are, Sam.

No way, Helix. I am the greatest liar this world has ever seen.

When you say you're a liar, how do I know you're telling the truth?

You'll just have to trust me.

The policeman? He was just checking our salvage permits. Everything was in order.

Permits? You mean taking all this stuff is legal?

Of course it's legal. We wouldn't be doing it otherwise.

Well, nuts. That kind of takes all the fun out of it.

It was a lot of hard work, but we got what we needed. For me, this trip was a complete success.

What hard work? You spent most of your time sitting down. Florence and I did all the hard work.

Like I said, Helix. For me, this trip was a complete success.

Let's go. Where's Florence?

She went to get more tie downs.

This is good enough. Why does she want more tie downs?

Sam, she's seen you drive.

I found some fifty ton test cable. If we double it up, it should be strong enough.

We can go through the canyon on our way home.

If we go south, there's a bridge.

Ahhh, what fun is that?

Sam, let's take the bridge.

Please?

Uh, sure. Bridge! Sounds great!

Amazing what you can accomplish with a polite word and a smile.

You're looking tired, Flo. When was the last time you slept?

Back on the truck, first day of the trip.

WHAT, YOU'E VE BEEN UP FOR THE LAST FOUR DAYS?! GO TO SLEEP! NOW!

You've been rubbing off on her, haven't you?

No way! I had that cheap paint job fixed months ago!

She's done everything she can to help us. Works until she drops. Never a word of complaint.

It's weird, Helix. I've never had anyone this dedicated to me before.

Z

Hey, what about me?!

I mean someone smart enough to know better.

Oh. All right then.

Heh, the moment I started to really like this comic (Robot Spike)
