(Strip Number 1002, Original Publication Date, 7 January 1986)
Panel 1: We begin things with Mike, Elly and Jim bidding farewell to Connie and Lawrence's silhouettes; as they leave, Elly promises to write them.
Panel 2: Elly comments on how wonderful Connie looks when she tells Jim that she's happy for her.
Panel 3: Marian overhears the old boy as he gets all wisful and smiley about how there's nothing like a new love affair to really get the pulse pounding.
Panel 4: When Marian makes a sarcastic comment about sticking to jogging, Jim's smile is erased.
Summary: This is, of course, the sort of banter that an old, comfortable married couple like these two engage in pretty much all the time. We gain a closer perspective on their relationship when she tells him to not beat himself up over an accident despite his sort of wanting SOMEONE to do so.
