July 2020

Panel 1
Greg: OK, I'm going to take this one step at a time, here. Things are starting to come back to me a bit.
Id: Take your time. We both know you're a bit slow on the uptake.

Panel 2
Greg: So if what I remember of Freud is true, then the Id is the core of a person's personality. It's like... purely desire and need-driven.
Id: Bingo.

Panel 3
Greg: And if I recall, the Ego is... what, the filter on top that is supposed to interact with the world?
Id: That's a basic way of putting it, but sure. You exist to get us what I want in a way that doesn't put us in any danger. You're there to keep us safe.

Panel 4
Greg: Well, I'd say I've been doing a fairly good job of that so far!
Id: IT'S A TWO-PART DIRECTIVE, GREG. Keeping us safe is PART of the job, but the OTHER part is GETTING US WHAT I WANT. If you were on payroll, I'd have fired your ass a long time ago!
Id: Stupid unions.
