(Strip Number 4455, Original Publication Date, 18 January 1985)
Panel 1: We start things off with a pissed-off John complaining about how much his cast itches.
Panel 2: He then reminds us that he hates crutches, sitting around and all the other bullshit he's gotta deal with.
Panel 3: He thought-bubbles about how he wants to get out and do things again.
Panel 4: Sadly, Phil materializes into his field of view and makes a snotty comment about how John is lazing around again.
Summary: While I can feel sorry for John, he doesn't really have a grievance here. This is because before he retreated into his workshop, he spent most of the stip prostrate on the sofa complaining being worked to death.
