    I like how both Philo’s and Captain Eaton’s characters have developed along with their relationship in the dialogue of these last two pages.

    “Abandon ship” oh, we don’t have one of those. Or rather, we used it up already when we abandoned Alice up top.

    Well done, Roddy. Well done.

    It’s okay Philo, don’t panic! Just turn the shut off valves on the dials a little bit until they give proper readings again. You’ll still be doomed, but at least your readings will be normal.

      Genius! Seeing as how peril-sensitive sunglasses have yet to be invented, I think this is the only reasonable course of action.

        You haven’t taken into account the most-obvious course of action: Having a spot of tea.

        • Thorin Schmidt says:

          Oh, well, I had simply assumed that as a given. I’m expecting Godfrey to show up any minute with “Young Charlotte” (i doubt he could make himself say ‘Charlie”) in tow, announcing Tea Time…

    I approve of your plan! Live forever in luxury… I like it! Now, define “forever”?

    He’s taken the limiters off! When this baby hits 88 miles per hour…

    I suppose banking the fire wouldn’t help quickly enough, then?

    I have wonder wither Philo considers himself in more danger from the run away vessel or what Alice is going to do to him when she catches up with him. Somehow I don’t think little details like him being in the depths of the earth will stop her wrath.

    • mvandinter says:

      Are you saying that Alice is a supernatural being, a goddess of anger, awesome and unstoppable?

      P.S. Thanks for joining the conversation, Aline1 🙂
