In the first panel, a large snail is shown sitting in Lem's hand, apparently the thing he was bending over to pick up. Lem says, "This is a type of sea snail from far south of here. Its shell has a special property. It is the only substance with the natural ability to attract errant souls! I kept hearing rumors from mortals about 'sea shells with voices' & I finally checked it out when you died. They built the amplifiers that brought you back to your body! It's a passive method, & occasionally catches a soul that isn't your target, but it's safe & effective!"

In the second panel, Fern is staring at the snail bug-eyed as Lem holds it out to him. Lem continues speaking, "I didn't even design them to do this and I still don't actually understand how they manage it."

In the third panel, Lem is smiling but looks a little sheepish. He says, "Are you all right? I think it's neat, but your face tells me you don't agree?"

In the fourth panel, Fern looks pretty uncomfortable. He says, "I'm sorry. The last time a primary showed me a small animal didn't turn out so well for me." Lem responds, "Oh dear. I won't ask."
