About Last Night... 18 Years Ago... - Part 4

Part 4

I actually had a rough draft of a strip - in my notebook dating back to 1995 - showing Cassie's first day at work. Originally panel 4 would kick off the first TLT strip (and the first of a multipart storyline where she invents the time machine), but I decided to just do a quick one-page version of the time machine origin for the premiere.

Comic transcript

TRANSCRIPTION COURTESY OF JOSEPH HOUK - "So why again are we going in early?" (CW) "I just wanna go back to the first day I worked here and make sure nothing gets too weird between Rodney and me. I don't know what I'm gonna do if he figures out I'm the one he slept with in 1991!" (BG) "Good luck!" [2003] (CW, to herself as she closes the time portal) Okay... If I remember correctly, I should be meeting Rodney right about... now! (Gordo) "Hey Rodney, Wanda. This is Cassie Wells. She's a super-smart young lady who'll be joining us in R&D." (Past RO) "Pleased to meet you, Cassie!" (Past CW) "Hi!" (Wanda) "Welcome aboard!" (PRO, in the cubicles in back, holding his UT mug) "You know, you remind me of someone I met at a party back in the day. Are you...? [CW looks on in fear] NAH... You couldn't be..." [PCW is oblivious] (CW, whispering) phew!
