(Strip Number 694, Original Publication Date, 31 August 1984)
Panel 1: Having observed that Phil left early, Mike asks Elly why that is.
Panel 2: She tells him that he said he was feeling agitated and needed a rest.
Panel 3: Mike asks if Phil has really quit smoking.
Panel 4: Judging from the fact that he's desperately looking in his car's ashtrays for something to soothe his nerves only to yell about how some fool had gone and cleaned them out, I'd say that that's a big no.
Summary: Tomorrow's edition of Withdrawal Theater Featuring Phil Richards has him enter the Surly Jerk phase. Well, at least it's better than today's Panicky Imbecile phase.
