(Strip Number 4552, Original Publication Date, 17 January 1986)
Panel 1: We find ourselves at the clinic watching John and Jean's replacement Jennifer working on a patient; as he asks for a clamp, he talks about how hard it is having other people live with them.
Panel 2: He then says that he wants three things: to sleep in his own bed, to be able to walk to the biff in his Stanfields and for his assistant to hand him an explorer.
Panel 3: Oh, don't get him WRONG or anything; he loves his in-laws BUT they drive him crazy.
Panel 4: When he spins up his drill and says that he's glad that he can take out his frustrations on his work, he manages to scare the patient.
Summary: Great. Another incompetent, careless, thoughtless dentist joke. Whenever I see him at his paces, I keep remembering Steve Martin's role in Little Shop Of Horrors.
