“We all will, sooner or later. Except Walt and Skeezix. They’ll live forever. Eons from now, when the sun goes dark and Earth is a scorched husk, all that will remain of humanity will be Lazarus Long, Dana Scully, Walt Wallet and Skeezix Wallet.

“I’m jus’ here t’ tell the readers that the whole Wallet family done up an’ moved away, and ain’t never gonna be seen agin. It’s jus’ gonna be yo’ an’ me an’ Miz Mayor Melba an’ that feller works in every store in town, now an’ forever, until th’ sun goes out.”
