Panel by panel (71:1)
The next three panels are consecutive shots as if in slow motion. They show Manpower and the dwagon attacking Jillian and her gwiffon. This panel shows the red dwagon biting down on Jillian's left arm. Manpower is leaning forward with a massive sword hanging down getting ready to position for a strike. Only the top of Jillian's yellow-haired head and her right arm are visible.|||
Jillian tries to pry her left arm out, by pushing on the upper jaw of the red dwagon with her right hand. Manpower has lifted his sword into position for a one armed thrust. His sword is a wicked-looking falchion -- slightly curved, heavy at the end, with a couple of forked points near the tip, enhancing the ominous effect; it glows red along the length of its single edge.|||
Jillian has drawn her dagger, a long, thin, double-edged, straight blade without a crossguard. She is not, however, grimacing in pain, despite the dwagon on her arm. She stares dumbfounded at the right of the panel, past the dwagon and Manpower. The dwagon is also looking towards its rear. Manpower's head has been grabbed by a giant pair of pliers, and he is being pulled backward violently off his saddle. His sword falls, unbloodied.|||
Jillian looks up happily. She has retrieved her sword, though her arm is still held in the maw of the now-deceased dwagon.|||

On the left, Jillian's lips, cheek, and nose smile. On the right, Ansom's similar features are seen smiling back though the visor of his motorcycle helmet. In the background between the two, Vinny has slain a blue dwagon with a kick to the head.|||
- ^ A falchion is a type of scimitar-like sword.
- ^ Parson's phrase is reminiscent of the song title "All I Want For Christmas Is My Two Front Teeth"
