Fun fact: this is a 90% exact replica of my current office. Nothing like references that no one will get!
Panel 1: A close-up of Sigma, peeking into Rho’s office. He smiles and says “Hey Rho! Wanna go out for lunch?”
Panel 2: Sigma steps into Rho’s office, which is apparently empty. Sigma says “…Rho?”
Panel 3: A close-up of Rho, hiding under a desk. Sigma (off panel) says “Hmm…maybe he left early—” but he is interrupted by Rho who says “OW!” as he’s accidentally hit by Sigma’s cane.
Panel 4: Same close-up of Rho. Sigma (off panel) says “Rho, is that you?”. Rho says “Shh!!”
Panel 5: Sigma standing next to Rho’s desk with his hand on his hip and a look of disapproval. He says “What are you doing under your desk–“. Rho (off panel, from under the desk) says “Hiding from my advisor”. Sigma says “No results this week?”, Rho interrupts him with a “SHH” in big, bold letters.
