Panel 1: We find Elly getting ready to go out; she tells John that she'll be late so he'll be alone with the kids for dinner.
Panel 2: She tells him that dinner is mostly ready. All he needs to do is heat the casserole and vegetables and maybe even make a salad.
Panel 3: As she leaves it, John reassures her that he'll do just fine with dinner.
Panel 4: An elated Michael tells Lizzie "Oh, boy! We get to eat out!!"
Summary: Har-de-har, Lynn. We get it. Menfolks is bad with cookin' because they wanna make more work for their pooooooooor put-upon wives.
