Panel 1: INTERIOR RESTAURANT
Brandon and Holly are seated at a restaurant in the middle of a conversation.
BRANDON: ...And the place was empty. The manager said she had been gone a week. A week!
HOLLY: Oh Brand! I am so sorry.
BRANDON: Just up and moved across the country, no phone call. Not even a text. I didn't even get to say good-bye to the dog.
BRANDON: She could have at least let me know. Even an Ex deserves that much.
Brandon is getting himself worked up.
BRANDON: Is there a class women take to become that cold hearted? Is there some kind of correspondence course in Evil?
BRANDON: You know, I finally understand women. Women are Evil! Cold-hearted, selfish, sadistic bitches. All of them... Evil!
Holly's position has not changed. She is still sympathetically looking right at him, but a very small, subtle smile has crept on to her face.
BRANDON: (realising what he has just said could be interpreted as insulting to the gender of his dinner companion) ... Well not you... obviously...
BRANDON: (His face in his hands) Crap. I just bought dinner didn't I?
HOLLY: (Looking over the menu again) O you betcha!
HOLLY: Gotta save up for all that Evil I got going. It can be expensive you know... the Evil.
