Why does panel 4 looks like the robot parts are floating?

All I see is a floating tarbot carrying a box of junk

This is sounding less like "I am a SURGEON!" and more "I need to install a knife dispenser."

Stabology 101

The 18 Precepts of Stabbing
1 - Consider: there is no such thing as a knife.
2 - Your stance must be wide. You must not be spare with the fluidity of your wrists or shoulders. You must have grip on the handle that is loose and unstrained. I heard it said you must be tender with your knife grip, as though with a lover. This is patently false. A knife is not your lover. It is a hideous tool for separating men from their vital fluids.
3 - Going onwards, you must adjust hands as needed, do not keep the blade close to your body, keep your breathing steady. This is the life stab. You must watch your footwork. Your feet must be controlled whether planted on fire, air, water, or earth in equal measure.
4 - Breathing is very important! Is the violent breath of life in you not hot? Exhale! Exult!
5 - You must strive for attachment-non-attachment when stabbing. Your stab must be sticky and resolute. A weak, listless stab is a despicable thing. But you must also not cling to your action, or its result. Clinging is the great error of men. A man who strikes without thought of his action can stab God.
6 - To stab properly, you must continually self-annihilate when stabbing. Your hand must become a hand that is stabbing, your body a body that is stabbing, your mind, a mind that is stabbing. You must instantaneously destroy your fake pre-present self. It is a useless hanger on.
7 - A brain is useful only up until the point when you are faced with your enemy. Then it is useless. The only truly useful thing in this cursed world is will. You must suffuse your worthless body with its terrible heat. You must be so hot that even if your enemy should strike your head off, you shall continue to stab ten more men. Your boiling blood must spring forth from your neck and mutilate the survivors!
8 - You must never make 'multiple' stabs. Each must be singular in its beauty, no matter how many precede it. You must make your enemies weep with admiration, and likewise should your life be ended by such an object of beauty, you must do your best to shed tears of respect.
9 - When disemboweling an enemy, it is severe impoliteness to use more than one blow.
10 - A man who finds pleasure in the result of stabbing is the most hateful, crawling creature there is. A man who finds pleasure in the act of cutting is an artisan.
11 - Man always strives to stab man. Therefore he who draws his knife the fastest is the survivor. To pre-empt this, you must live, eat, and crap as a person who has their knife drawn. It doesn't matter whether your blade, in actuality, is always out of its sheathe, though you will look like an idiot if it is.
12 - Consider: The undefeated knifeman must be exceptionally poor.
13 - The weak knifeman reserves his knife strokes. He clings excessively to his blade. His footwork is unsteady. His grip is too hard and he is afraid to crack the earth with his step. He has a shallow and wandering gaze, his tongue is sluggish and pale. He refuses to exhale the hot breath of the Flame Immortal.
14 - The weak knifeman clings to victory. He thinks of his life, his obligations, the outcome of the battle, his hatred for his opponent, his training, his pride in his mastery. By doing so, he is an imperfect vessel for the terrible fires of Will. He will surely crack. He will not laugh uproariously if he is cleft in two by his opponent’s blade. When his knife is shattered, his hands will be too reserved to tear his enemies’ flesh.
15 - The weak knifeman strikes his enemy down and thinks his task done. He relishes in victory. He casts away his knife and returns to his lover. Little does he know his single cut will encircle the world five times and strike him down fifty-fold.
16 - The weak knifeman clings to his instrument. It is better you have a knife, but death must lie under your fingernails, if need be. Learn death with your elbows, death with your knees, and death with your thumbs and fingertips. It is said death with the tongue is useful, but I find words too soft an instrument to smash a man’s skull.
17 - In manners of terrain, you must learn to cut yourself from it. You must cut even your footprints from it, if need be. Have complete awareness of each crawling thing and each precious flower, each blade of sweet grass and each clod of bitter earth, each beating heart and each being that thrums with love, hope, and admiration. Only then are you qualified to be their annihilator.
18 - Excess heat and excess coldness are undesirable. Learn to read the weather.


Closing

1 - It is said the greatest warrior-kings may sublime violence and forget all they learn about the knife. This is true. But the only true path to kingship lies through regicide.
2 - Moreover, only the worst kind of idiot strives to be king.
3 - My extreme hope is that some measure of wisdom will penetrate the thick skull of my apprentice. If not, may reading this manual demonstrate your powerful disinterest in it, and may its true value die with me.
4 - Reach heaven by violence

I have to say, as much as I "don't like" Para, I really like her new look.
