Doonesbury by Garry Trudeau for September 04, 2001
Mark's father: I'm fine, Mark. I don't need a nursemaid. Well, I do, but I already have one. Mark: Well, then, let's just talk, Dad. It's not something we've done a whole lot of through the years. There's so much I don't know about you. I want to hear your story, the whole arc of your life! Mark's father: I was born, made a bunch of money, and now I'm dying. Cute arc, huh? Mark: Okay, that's a start.
