Working Things Out - Part 6

Part 6

Pensive Cassie is pensive.

Comic transcript

TRANSCRIPTION COURTESY OF JOSEPH HOUK - [The Dallas skyline at night, from a hill overlooking downtown] (AJ) "Great view, huh?" (CW, pensively) "Yeah... Looks cool." [Allen has his arm around Cassie, who is sitting with her arms around her knees – we've seen that pose before] (AJ) "You sound like you're a little out of it. Something troubling ya, Cassie?" (CW) "No... Well, I dunno. Ever feel like you have some deep, strange secret that you'd like to unload, but lots of people would be hurt if you told it? But if you didn't let the secret out, no one gets harmed, now or ever?" (AJ) "Whoa... That came out of nowhere." (CW) "-Sigh- I'm sorry. I didn't mean to ruin the moment." (AJ) "You didn't ruin anything, babe. (both look back at the skyline, two shadows in the night) Look, if there's some secret you have that you're uncomfortable about fessing up to, you don't have to say anything to me." (CW) "Thanks, sweetie... I'm glad you understand." (AJ) "Hey, I've overstepped enough boundaries already. I don't wanna make any more mistakes like that. (turning to hug her) Besides, you're such a smart and lovely woman. I can't imagine YOU having something twisted to hide." (CW, looking down and away) "Yeah... That would be crazy."
