    That is such an awesome retirement.

    And now Elan has somebody to visit once the quest is over!

    Wow, just wow. I didn't expect julio being the type for retiring.
    Wonder he's been put on a bus for good or if we'd get to see more of him, thought.
    Edit: I didn't got his last sentence either. Does it means "I'll need brain bleach" or something else?

    I'm not sure whether to be pissed off at seeing Haley was trying for an unfunny joke all along, or basking in the rest of the forum being played for fools.

    Does Julio mean to say "hit the head" in the last panel? I didn't get it and wondered if it meant to say "hit the hay".

    I hope I'm not the only one who heard that in Morgan Freeman's voice...

    EDIT: "Hit the head" is Navy slang for use the restroom.

    It's a typical story writing tool that hitting someone on the head will cause them convenient amnesia. It might be what he's talking about here.

    "Hit the head" means "go to the bathroom".

    I had a feeling Elan would end up with the Chaos Sabre. Rule of nominal importance and all that. Until proven otherwise I choose to believe it's similar to a Holy Avenger. A +5 Anarchic Rapier at least.

    What is with Bandana giving orders to the guy with the mop and the bucket? Is this some kind of inside joke that's lost on me or just a showing of a moment randomly chosen?

    "Hitting the head." Is that en euphemism for hitting the bottle or something else?

    Okay, this one actually made me spit out my tea. And then I choked on said tea and tripped over my chair. But we're going to ignore that last part because it makes me sound uncool. Elan and Julio are brilliant, I wish he could stay forever.

    "the head" is US Navy slang for "the toilet". They've got different words for everything aboard ship.
    How to turn off these annoying .sigs:

    1. Edit your profile options.
    2. Scroll down to "Visible Post Elements".
    3. Uncheck "Show Signatures".
    4. Save changes.
    5. Enjoy a much less cluttered and noisy forum.

    Speaking as a sailor. though not a navy man, this is absolutely true, and something we're quite smug about.

    Not that it will go that far, but I'm 90% certain they are discussing what V did that fateful lunchtime, and that 944 will cover it.

    Was going to ask the same thing, if that's a reference, I ain't got it.

    PS: just a suggestion, not being an English native speaker, I've found that when in need for the meaning of a certain slang term or phrase Urban Dictionary is my best friend, as this was the case.

    Good one, and perfect characterization.

    Don't really get the "hit the head" bit though.

    I cracked up over the third-to-last panel

    It's going to be interesting with the rest of OOTS actually interacting with Blackwing now ...

    Thanks Giant!

    ETA: @RMS Oceanic

    Yes, I agree. 944 is going to be ... interesting

    "Hit the head" is sailor-speak for using the bathroom.

    There is no reference or joke in the panel with Bandana giving orders, it's just a picture of her being in command because three straight panels of Elan looking at a piece of paper would have been boring.

    Probably discussing this. And this. This too. And more than likely this.

    The only reason they didn't cop to the whole thing earlier was the pressures of battle.
