In today's strip, Jean is used as a mouthpiece for stupid-ass idiot Lynn's irritating wailing about new-borns needing constant attention because of the refusal to understand how helpless children actually are.

(Strip Number 914, Original Publication Date, 9 August 1985)

Panel 1: Having found out that his eleven o'clock cancelled, John invites Jean to have a cup of coffee and a chat; Jean agrees to do so.

Panel 2:
A few minutes later, we find the two of them in the medical building's cafe. John asks Jean how being a new mother is and gets an it's-fine-BUT.

Panel 3: The reason it's not an unqualified delight is that there's a down-side she didn't anticipate. John asks her what this problem might be.

Panel 4: Said 'baffling' problem is that she can't see why she has to spend so much TIME taking care of somethingsomeone who sleeps so much.

Summary: This, of course, is owing to her being the creation of a brainless failure who never admitted to herself that newborn children actually are defenseless and not trying to bust her ass.
