The title text is a reference to the character 'Death' in Terry Pratchett's diskworld novels. In the diskworld novels his dialogue is always depicted in small caps and he is often caught making sometimes bizarre philosophical statements about life and death.
- [Cueball runs towards Megan with shotgun in hand.]
- Cueball: I'm from the future!
- Cueball: You're being stalked by an unstoppable robotic assassin!
- [Close up of Cueball's head.]
- Cueball: Of course, in a sense, we're all being stalked by an unstoppable robot.
- Cueball: A robot called time.
- [Cueball looking at a clock.]
- Cueball: I see it in the mirror. I see wrinkles, grey hairs.
- Cueball: I hear its metallic footsteps in the relentless rhythm of the ticking clock.
- [Cueball reaches out to Megan.]
- Cueball: Anyway, uhh - come with me if you want to live for a while.
- Cueball: You'll still die eventually.
- Cueball: We all will.

A lot of Randall's recent comics are quite poetic. It's like some kind of trend. Davidy²²[talk] 05:14, 22 February 2013 (UTC)

I've learned that death is the only certainty in life, until we develop technology to avoid that. Until that time we should just relax and enjoy the adventure, even if we find ourselves in the scary movie sometimes, as a human race we will come out fine at the end. - e-inspired 22.214.171.124 19:01, 27 February 2013 (UTC)
- Yes, if we colonize in a distant star system that just happens to have an Earth-like planet before our sun dies, and even then, the universe will die, be it by the Big Rip, Big Crunch, Big Freeze, or just heat death, and even if it is revived in a Big Bounce, all of human achievement will have been lost and the short-lived activity on the skin of a tiny rock orbiting a tiny star in a tiny galaxy will have been for nothing. It really sucks, too, since we've done so much, including developing multiple theories on our ultimate fate and the possible values of certain variables that would cause each one. 126.96.36.199 00:43, 25 April 2013 (UTC)
