2 {Kyros falls.}
3 {The others look on in shocked silence.}
4 Lambert: {turning to Mordekai} I always knew Kyros would go out with an insult.

I originally wrote this strip with the punchline by Mordekai:

Fly?! How are we supposed to fly? You're the freaking wizard!
Then I added Lambert's line as you see it above. The script sat in my ideas file for a week or so before I took the photos and assembled the strip.

I kept both lines right up until the point where they were both typed in and had word balloons added. And then I looked at it and realised the entire effect of this strip would be stronger without Mordekai's line. So it had to go.

It's a bit of a shame, since I feel it was a good line by itself. It's just that Lambert's line is stronger, and I couldn't reasonably split them over two strips, since both need to be said in the immediate aftermath of Kyros falling to have the correct context. So, I'm recording Mordekai's lost line here in the annotation for posterity.
