Episode 84: Greased Lightning


When searching for an episode title for this strip, we sought out the lyrics of the song Greased Lightning (from the musical Grease).

Wowee, none of us had realised that if we quoted some of the lyrics we'd most likely violate the PG rating of this comic. So instead of getting lyrics from the song, you just get the song title.

Qui-Gon: Excellent roleplaying, Sally. Always use NPCs to help with dangerous jobs.
