Cal seems a little out of it in the first panel, clutching his chest with his left hand. "You're...not wrong," he says to Fola. "Sorry, I seemed to lose my breath for a moment. I'm not sure if you're aware, but Lem has always had a personal interest in this end of magic, from when he was about your age... I remember him saying things like what you just said, to me."

Fola goes walleyed in the second panel, doubt creasing his face. "What?" Fola says. "No, he must have meant something else. This was all my own idea, he has no interest in it whatsoever."

Cal looks pensive and stares at the floor in the third panel, raising one eyebrow as he talks. "I can assure you, he meant the same as you did," Cal says. "How do you think he managed to defeat me in the old days? Lem didn't just talk about loopholes. He used one."

Fola leans back in his chair, his eyes wide, and vacantly taps the arm of the chair with his right hand fingers in the fourth panel. "It's hard to believe, but once you put it that way..." Fola says. "I think I might have figured out why Lem & you don't get on," Cal continues, still staring at the floor.

In the last and fifth panel, Cal looks slightly pained and says, "You... remind him of himself."
