PANEL 1, SCENE: Flight Attendant Jill and Captain Jack are talking inside the plane.

CAPTION: Jack was persistent, though! During the flight, he rushed out of the cockpit and cornered me…at a crucial moment!

JILL: But…people are eating! I’ve got to hand out the barf bags before it’s too late!

JACK: Let ’em use their carry on bags!

PANEL 2, SCENE: Jack and Jill are arguing as a passenger looks on.

JACK: I’ve got to know now! Will you be my Valentine?

JILL: Wake up and smell the coffee, Fly Boy! I can’t be anyone’s Valentine—not the way I cook!

PANEL 3, SCENE: Passenger asks Jill something.

PASSENGER: Stewardess, how about a gin and tonic?

JILL: Sure, I could use a drink!

PANEL 4, SCENE: Jill and Jack are talking again.

CAPTION: “I was sure Jack had given up, but later in the flight I learned how wrong I was!”

JILL: Y-y-you ate one of the meals I served? On purpose?

JACK: I love you, Jill! To prove it…I even had a second helping!

PANEL 5, SCENE: Jack and Jill talk.

JILL: Oh, Jack! Even the…Brussels sprouts?

JACK: Sure! Can’t you tell?
