John makes a mildly jokey comment about how Ted's making a meal of how lost he feels beats dieting.

(Strip Number 975, Original Publication Date, 11 November 1985)

Panel 1: We find ourselves at John's clinic as he tells Ted that the reason his jaw aches is that he grinds his teeth at night.

Panel 2: Ted tells him that he can't help it because he can't stop thinking about the fact that Connie moved away instead of putting up with his will-he-or-won't-he bullshit.

Panel 3: He whines that he can't eat or sleep and has lost 10 lbs.

Panel 4: An unsympathetic John says it beats dieting.

Summary: While it's sort of annoying watching John play his part in this little revenge fantasy, wait until he tags in the missus. Ted'll really be humiliated then. Why, he might even have to admit that he brought this on himself playing those stupid-ass high school head games like a teenager instead of acting like a grown man.
