Thomas: "So--is that what working at RONI'S was like--sublimation to a symbol?"
Nerva: "Well--that's KIND of an over-simplification--but in ESSENSE, it's not far off th' mark.."
Thomas: "Huh--so that didn't work out in th' long run?"
Nerva: "Nah--'holding pattern' at best..."
Nerva: "& actually a DETERIORATIN' holding pattern--ever since RONI HEPHISTUS kidnapped HERA, I couldn't even stay FOCUSED on bein' a symbol or MANIFESTATION! I took to takin' LEAVES OF ABSENCE, & doing CHALK DRAWINGS ON WALLS!"
Nerva: "I GUESS it wasn't long before I had to FACE UP & SHIP OUT.."
Thomas: "have I mentioned that we APREESHEATE yer game-winning PUNCH? It may have SAVED US ALL!"
Nerva: "Yes- well--thank you...but SOMETIMES it's easier- to SAVE the day than to know how to SPEND it..."
Nerva: "Umm--or SOMETHING"
Thomas: "No, I get what you're saying... So, what's NEXT for you?"
