Book 7: Emperor Pius Dei — Part I: Big Schlock, Little Schlock, What Begins With Schlock?
Note: Footnote: This is a family friendly comic, but it is important that the children who may be reading understand certain things, even at a young age. So, kids, "quality time" is a euphemism for "playing Scrabble," and Haban doesn’t want Petey to know that he managed to assemble the word "stimulation" on a triple-word score.


Petey: So. . . do you want to talk about it?
Haban: Talk about what?
Petey: Your consciousness withdrew from us. Your unique perspective is unavailable. You have spent almost three hours now being only you.
Haban: I wanted to spend some time alone with my wife. You know, quality time.
Petey: Well, it's not like we won't remember it when you reconnect.
Haban: Thank you so much for reminding me of that.
