CHAPTER 37: The Body of a Criminal

Page 1:
Barry: “I already told you!”
--------------------------
Barry: “The researchers who put me in this body are dead so I don’t know nothin’ about immortality or anything like that.”
Ling: “Oh, come on.”
Falman: “Hey!”
--------------------------
Ling: “We had a deal! I helped you back at the prison!”
Falman: “Hello!”
Barry: “And I busted you out, so we’re even.”
--------------------------
Ling: “That’s not what I mean. You know, to the East...?”
Barry: “Oh, yeah... Well, what do we do know?”


Page 2:
Barry: “Oh, yeah! You’re friends with that Alphonse guy, right? He’s got a body similar to mine—you should ask him.”
Ling: “That’s right! The armor guy!”
Falman: “Yoo hoo!”
--------------------------
Ling: “All right, I’m stepping out for a minute! If anything happens, make sure you send me a signal, Lanfan.”
Lan Fan: “Yes, sir.”
Falman: “Hey!”
--------------------------
Barry: “See you later!”
Falman: “Hey!! Explain to me what’s going on!!
--------------------------
Barry: “Aw, give it a rest. You’re just a pitiful soldier who is threatened by a prison break suspect and locked up in some rundown apartment.”
Falman: “Huh?”
--------------------------
Falman: “Uh...”
Lan Fan: Ignore...
--------------------------
Falman: “I’m in charge here, right? ...Right?”
Barry: Sure you are.


Page 3:
Mustang: “Hey, Elizabeth! How are you?”
--------------------------
Elizabeth (Hawkeye): “Oh, hello, Roy. Thanks for calling. Are you still at work?”
Mustang: “Uh-huh, bit I really wanted to hear your voice.”
--------------------------
Elizabeth (Hawkeye): “Oh, aren’t you slick. But if you slack off too much, won’t that scary assistant of yours be mad at you?”
Mustang: “Don’t worry. She’s off today.”
--------------------------
Mustang: “I got so much work done this week, I told her to take to take the day.”
Elizabeth (Hawkeye): “That’s nice of you. But I’m going to be stuck at the shop for a while, so I don’t think I’ll be going home any time soon.”
SFX: PSST PSST
Soldier 1: “How about that?”
--------------------------
Soldier 2: “As soon as Lt. Hawkeye takes some time off, he starts flirting on the phone.”
SFX: HA HA HA
Soldier 1: “I guess she really is his ‘babysitter.’”


Page 4:
Soldier 2: “Isn’t it against policy to use a secure military line for personal business. What’s he thinking, calling up a girl?”
--------------------------
Mustang: “I haven’t had a moment’s rest since I came to Central... ...so I’ve been thinking about taking some time off.”
Elizabeth (Hawkeye): “Oh? Are you going somewhere?”
--------------------------
Mustang: “Lately, I’ve been itching to go fishing.” “Would you like to come?”

Al: “?"
--------------------------
Winry: “When I thought about how you and Al have been battling in a situation where even someone like Mr. Hughes got killed...” “...It made me really scared.”
--------------------------
Winry: “I mean, you guys could actually die on this mission.” “You might walk away and I’d never see you again. When I thought about that, I was terrified.”
--------------------------
Winry: “It made me wish that you’d stop travelling.”
--------------------------
Winry: “But when Al said that he’d give up on getting his former body back...” “...I knew that... ...I didn’t want him to give up.”


Page 8:
Winry: “Those are my honest feelings.” “I wanted you to regain your original bodies, but I also want you to stop this dangerous journey... and... uh...”

Al: Don’t act so proud... “What’ve you been up to since we last saw you?”
