1 - The Tick sits on the couch in full relaxation mode. His legs are wrapped in a warm blanket, he has snacks and hot chocolate on the coffee table in front of him, he carelessly holds a book in one hand, and pretty much any number of other vacation / resting ideas (pile of DVDs to watch, a "What to do in The City?" guidebook, etc). Arthur looks on, perplexed.
LETTERING NOTE: "Staycation" should be written in a bigger style of some sort to emphasize its novelty.
TICK (1): Arthur, prepare yourself for modern life's most ancient and noble tradition of all.
TICK (2): Staycation!
TICK (3): We will rest!
TICK (4): Relax!
TICK (5): Potentially read!
TICK (6): And any number of supplementary activities - some potentially also beginning with "r"!
2 - On Arthur, looking with an expression of surprise / concern over the wealth of staycation material.
ARTHUR (1): ...
ARTHUR (2): Wouldn't you rather be out protecting The City?
3 - The Tick stands up on the couch, striking a thoughtful / oratorical pose. Perhaps he uses the book as a prop to emphasize his point.
TICK (1): Arthur, to protect The City, we must know what its people love.
TICK (2): What they hold dear.
TICK (3): Only then can we truly understand what it is we protect.
TICK (4): And why it matters that it be protected.
4 - Arthur glumly pages through the "What to do in The City?" guidebook.
ARTHUR: Is there any way I can respond that doesn't result in staycationing?
5 - The Tick swoops in and gives Arthur a great big bear hug of enthusiasm (possibly around Arthur's neck).
TICK: I very much doubt it!
