Comic transcript

TRANSCRIPTION COURTESY OF JOSEPH HOUK - [1972; inside a "hippo sub" in the South Asian Sea] (CW) "So... did anything change back there?" (KS) "I'm afraid not. According to my sources, Gary's still dead and Jake still lost his arm." (CW, shaking) "No... NO... It can't end this way! We GOTTA go back..." (KS) "Cassie! Please... Let it go." (CW, crying on KS' shoulder) "It's –SNIFF- just not fair, dammit!..." (KS) "Cassie... You can't save everyone. It's amazing, and quite touching, how much you've done for so many lives already... but sometimes you just have to let life – and death – run its natural course." (CW, curled up in the fetal position) "-Sigh- I know... I just really wanted to make things better for Jake in some way.. He sure as hell didn't deserve the fate he ended up with!" (KS) "Actually... There might be something else we can do..." [Brandy at a bar] ...We just need to get in touch with the right people... [Jasmine, crying over a photo of Gary] ... in the right place... [Jake, as he waits to get off the bus with other soldiers] ... at the right time.
