(Strip Number 628, Original Publication Date, 9 June 1984)
Panel 1: Later that day, we find John and Steve talking about the Mystery Illness. Steve leads off by reminding us that Lizzie is out of the hospital and feeling okay.
Panel 2: John comments on how it was so sudden but they were lucky it wasn't too serious.
Panel 3: He then starts to tell Steve that that's the funny thing about life.
Panel 4: Said funny thing is that you never know what's around the corner. To prove that point, Mike is about to ambush John with a squirt gun.
Summary: This ends John and Mike's involvement with this arc. Next week, Elly gets in Lizzie's face about going out before she's well and Annie makes a comment that makes most of us want to kick her in the rump.
