(Strip Number 7185, Original Publication Date, 26 May 1985)
Panel 1: We start things off with a smiling John opening the garage door as he prepares to head out for the day.
Panel 2: The engine starts to turn over.
Panel 3: The car starts to pull out of the garage.
Panel 4: For some reason, he crashes into something before he can get into the driveway.
Panel 5: He looks at the bent area of the track to the door and curses to himself.
Panel 6: He frowns as he saunters into the house.
Panel 7: He phones the garage door people and tells the man that he'd like to order a replacement track.
Panel 8: He tells the man that it was just one of those things because the car somehow backed into the track while he was pulling out.
Panel 9: He sheepishly smiles as he agrees that a dumb move has indeed been made.
Panel 10: He smiles brightly when he tells the mechanic that his wife did it. If Elly is paying attention, she can sense a disturbance in the Force that's going to make driving more expensive.
Summary: Not only did he get Elly into grief she doesn't need just so he doesn't look like a fool, he can't even describe what she supposedly did correctly. After all, the goof bent it backing out of the garage, not into it.
