Today's strip has John and Mike talk about how Elly had to take Lizzie to the hospital. The payoff is that Mike wants to be reassured that John's reassuring words have something solid backing them up.

(Strip Number 621, Original Publication Date, 1 June 1984)

Panel 1: Later that day, we find John looking out the window and telling Mike that Elly has taken Lizzie to the hospital. Mike asks "How come?"

Panel 2: John tells him that her fever is worse and they were getting worried.

Panel 3: He tells Michael that Elizabeth will be fine and to go back to bed.

Panel 4: Michael responds by saying "Promise?" and looking really freaked out.

Summary: I can understand his being anxious; after all, he put a lot of work into raising Lizzie on his own and wants to make sure that it isn't going to go to waste.
