Title text: What'll I say -- "I was staring at some cat vomit when I got the news?"
The caption below the frame tells us that the Man is afraid that if someone were to die unexpectedly, then the Man is afraid that he will not be able to forget the last thing he said to that person. In the comic panel, the Man has observed a mess on the floor, presumably cat vomit. He asks the second, off panel, character who is leaving to "pick up some spray cleaner that works on cat vomit." The man suddenly realizes that should the off-panel character die on that errand that this would be the last thing he said to them. Panicking slightly, the Man interrupts their departure and says something more appropriate as last words - "You are in my heart always." The off-panel character is confused by this statement, not being aware of the Man's fear.
- [A man looks down at a puddle on the floor and speaks to someone out-of-panel.]
- Man: Hey, while you're out, can you pick up some spray cleaner that works on cat vomit?
- Voice: Can do! -- Bye!
- [Man extends his arm and faces the leaving person.]
- Man: ...Wait!
- Voice: Yes?
- Man: Uh. ...You are in my heart always.
- Voice: ...?
- Sometimes, when people leave, I'm seized by a sudden fear that they'll die while they're out, and I'll never forget the last thing I said to them.
