Again with an action scene. And again I wasn't sure how well this would come across in Lego, but I'm pretty pleased with the result. I hope it's clear what's happening from panel 2 to panel 3.

I considered having Monty say something inane in panel 3 like, "She grabbed him and jumped out!" but I think saying it in pictures alone rather than words is more effective here.

And if you're a single guy and you wonder why women don't throw themselves at you more often, maybe you should get a parachute too.

2015-07-01 Rerun commentary: I like how Haken is looking out the door in panel 4.

The parachute not only assists when falling from a height, but can be used as a discreet modesty shield, as demonstrated by James Bond and Pussy Galore* in the final scene of Goldfinger.

* If you weren't previously aware of this character from the James Bond novel and film Goldfinger... I kid you not.
