Episode 273: Degriefing

<<FIRST     <PREVIOUS     NEXT>     LATEST>>

In order to make this comic, we had to watch this scene. Over and over.

Multiple times.

Full speed and in slow motion.

And frame by frame.

Forwards and in reverse.

I estimate I watched this scene about 50 times in the couple of weeks leading up to the production and finalisation of this strip.

Don't ever say what we do is easy.

Transcript

{Anakin and Padmé are sitting in a field. There are waterfalls in the background.}
Anakin: These waterfalls - see how unnatural they look. More of the changes brought on by the missing tides.
Padmé: Hmmm. I'm beginning to get the idea that we need to find those Peace Moon plans.
{beat}
Anakin: You know, Jim, at the start of the adventure you really were acting a bit...
Padmé: Like a jerk?
Anakin: Uh, kind of.
Padmé: You noticed!
Anakin: Um... it was hard to miss. You were bossing people around and being generally obnoxious.
Padmé: Yes, that's what Senators do! I'm working on improving my roleplaying.
Anakin: Oh! Well, that's... actually kind of interesting.
Padmé: I'd been thinking about you— I mean, what you did with Shmi.
Padmé: She stayed behind even though it didn't help us at all. That's what roleplaying's about, right?
Anakin: So that's what you're doing with Padmé. Being unhelpful.
Padmé: Exactly!
Anakin: Um. A complex character like yours must have a softer side. Maybe you should explore that.
Anakin: From now on.
