In today's strip, John's attempts to reassure Mike fall on deaf ears owing to the lad being the same sort of gloomy person his mother is.

(Strip Number 523, Original Publication Date, 20 December 1983)

Panel 1: We fast-forward a bit to find Mike just about to go to bed. He tells John that he glued the angel together as best he could and wonders if Mom will notice.

Panel 2: Since he's got 'buy new angel to make things right' on his to-do list, John says to not talk about that now, put the angel away and get some sleep.

Panel 3: He then says to not worry so much; things always look better in the morning, after all.

Panel 4: Mike thought-bubbles that the problem with that is that morning takes all night to get here.

Summary: John might think that Mike is okay but since he doesn't really know his son that well, he's unaware that his son spends his nights staring at the ceiling filled with apprehension about what is to come.
