Panel 1

Beaver: "But what do you need our socks for anyway?"
Steve: "And where did the delivery guy go..?"
Xarlaxian King: "The left socks of Earth are the richest source of the rare element chizanunium. It is the element which fuels our ships."

Panel 2

Xarlaxian King UNFOLD!s a collection of alien pictures while DAB!'ing one of his three eyes with a handkerchief. All three characters are sobbing and Steve BLORT!'s his nose loudly.
Xarlaxian King: "Without your socks we can never get home to see our families again! I miss them so much!"
Beaver: "Sniff! That's so sad!"
Xarlaxian King: "OK, we reproduce asexually so they are technically all my identical clones, but I miss 'em all the same..."

Panel 3

Beaver and Steve take off left socks, to reveal their human feet.
Beaver: "Your story has touched our hearts - here are the last of our left socks!"
Xarlaxian King: "Oh! With these socks we will finally have enough fuel to return home!"

Panel 4

[SO...]
Washing machine/Xarlaxian Battle Cruiser takes off. Beaver and Steve wave goodbye. A bird watches surprised.
Steve: "Bye!"
Beaver: "Don't forget to write!"

Panel 5

[INSIDE...]
A Xarlaxian is comforting the king, who is holding a white sock..
Xarlaxian King: "Oh boo-hoo I miss them so much..."
Xarlaxian: "There there..."

Panel 6

The Xarlaxians' faces turn into devilish smiles as they LIFT their slimy disguise robes and PUT-ON! some socks.
Xarlaxian King: "Ha ha! Earthlings are such suckers!"
Xarlaxian: "But they do make very good socks!"
Xarlaxian's Foot: "Mmm - toasty!"
