(Strip Number 4455, Original Publication Date, 30 November 1984)
Panel 1: We end this arc by John stupidly telling Elly that while she has been doing a lot of exercise, she doesn't seem to be losing weight.
Panel 2: Elly screams WHAT???!!!!!!
Panel 3: She then screams angrily at her stupid filth-foul-filth husband about how he can filth himself right up his foul.
Panel 4: John "apologetically" claims that he's sorry about being honest. Since this is John talking, he's sorry she feels that way about his calling it as he sees it.
Summary: It would seem that Will never took John aside and told him the super-important, character-building and life-saving phrase "When you're already in a hole....for God's sake, STOP DIGGING!!" (Well, that and "Never answer truthfully to any question involving a lady's weight.")
