(Strip Number 742, Original Publication Date, 8 November 1984)
Panel 1: Now that he's at home, John's at the kitchen table whining like a five year old because he doesn't know how he'll function without Jean around.
Panel 2: Elly tells him he has plenty of time to train someone to take over for her.
Panel 3: John whines that Elly doesn't understand the problem before stupidly being honest and saying that he thinks that it would be easier to replace a wife than replace someone like Jean.
Panel 4: After Elly quite rightly storms out of the room, John tries weaseling his way out of admitting that he doesn't really think that much of her.
Summary: He's lucky Elly is too proud to take the kids and run back home to Vancouver to get away from his being a stupid, churlish, entitled dolt. Too bad Rod isn't lucky enough to make people believe that he ain't John.
