The Death of Rat Part II: "Coping With the Death of an Unloved One" "...You know, it's only been a week, and already I've forgotten all about him." "Yep. For the first time, I'm actually enjoying being in this strip..." "Guys! Guys! Stop your weeping! Cease the tearing of your garments! It is your beloved Rat! Back from the dead!! Love me! Hold me! Be me! Need me!" (crickets) "Whatsa matter? Don't you miss me?? I am Rat, patron saint of the funnies! Where is the love?!?" "Hey, man... Your being gone has made us realize that Pig is the star of the strip. He's the funny one." "What?? How can you be saying this?!" "...And notonly that... We now realize that despite superficial appearances, it's Pig that has the real wisdom... You're just a loud-mouth, pompous malcontent." "I'm what?? Have you forgotten who yo are talking to?! I'm Rat, not some hack comic character! Not some utterer of inanities!! I'm a comic god!! I count @*%# it!! Don't you get it?!? Don't you... okay.. what are you staring at?..." "...Hello, friend." "...This is the best "Pearls Before Swine" I've seen in two years... Don't you think Rat?... I say, don't you think?"
