Monty's first line was originally just, "I guess that's me." But I wanted it to be obvious that that's Erwin asking Dr Smith to follow him, and not just Nazi 1. So I added the line in post-production (i.e. while I was setting the dialogue in my graphics program).

I often change lines slightly when I put a strip together at that stage of production, as it gives me an extra chance to review the dialogue and tweak it to make it hang together better, or make it funnier, or make it more obvious what's happening.

2013-10-14 Rerun commentary: Dr Smith wears the standard uniform of action girls from the 1920s era: a flying jacket and a scarf. One most justifiably presumes she can competently fly an open-cockpit plane of any description.
