We end the week with Lynn slamming us over the head with what this idiotic arc is really about. This is because one of the candidates for Jean's replacement is one of those predatory females that Lynn thinks wants to destroy her marriage because humiliating plain people like her out of wanton malice is just what pretty girls do. Also, John/Rod is a jerk who wants to cheat on her.

(Strip Number 744, Original Publication Date, 10 November 1984)

Panel 1: Back at home, John whines about having trouble hiring a new assistant. So far, he's received seven applications and can't possibly decide who to hire.

Panel 2: Having taken over the decision-making process, Elly rejects one applicant for sending in a letter riddled with spelling and punctuation errors and a second for being written in pencil

Panel 3: She then sets up the 'joke' by disqualifying a third woman because her letter is on perfumed paper and includes body measurements.

Panel 4: Slobbering ape John grabs for the letter and tells Elly "Lemme see that!!!"

Summary: Heh. It ain't just his patients Rod had to convince that he ain't as incompetent and uncaring as John. He also had to try to convince his staff that he wasn't a repellent slob who saw them as his harem.
