Very, very picky question: 3rd last panel - why is the emphasis on "be" rather than "here"?

Stress on any of the three words conveys the same message, just with a different emphasis.

"We'll be here!" - We are confident in our ability to be all that is needed.

"We'll be here!" - You can absolutely rely on us not to leave this place, no matter how long it takes.

"We'll be here!" - This is the place we have chosen to remain until this matter is sorted.

wellllllll...... sorta. But I'd prefer option #1 as in "despite his protestation's, I'll make sure we'll both be here"
It's not big deal, it's just that word emphasis in comics text can be so odd and random, I'm sometimes unsure if I'm missing something.
(Actually, I'd like to see a 4th option - the Chandler Bing reading: "Could we BE more here?")

"We'll" does seem the most appropriate here.
