John's quest to find the good side of Jim's stupidity collapses in failure when Elly proves herself Marian's daughter by completely missing the point.

(Strip Number 4561, Original Publication Date, 30 January 1986)

Panel 1: When John asks Elly why Jim was poking around in the attic like an idiot, she tells him that he was checking the insulation.

Panel 2: Upon noticing that John is confused, angered and terrifed by Jim's stupidity and meddling, Elly tries to jolly him into seeing the good side of things.

Panel 3: John asks her what could possibly be good about Jim putting his foot through the ceiling.

Panel 4: Upon being told that the insulation is fine, John is strangely NOT reassured that he has to pay a large repair bill for absofreakinglutely nothing.

Summary: This is why the next time they have parents over to watch the house, it's Will and Carrie. His dad doesn't do shit like this.
