(Strip Number 4582, Original Publication Date, 17 March 1986)
Panel 1: We find ourselves at the clinic today. As John looks at an X-ray, Elly looks out the windown and tells him that Ted and Iris are here; since she got Irene's name wrong because she can't be bothered to remember it, John corrects her.
Panel 2: He does the same thing when she tells Jennifer the receptionist that they went to Jamaica when they actually went to Barbados.
Panel 3: He also has to tell her that Irene's been his secretary for twelve and not fifteen years.
Panel 4: When he tells her that if she is going to gossip, she should get it right, Elly is gobsmacked.
Summary: At least today, she's just mangling the facts because she can't quite remember them and probably doesn't as such care so long as she looks as if she knows what she's talking about. Tomorrow, she turns into an insensitive jerk making a cutting remark to "defend" a friend.
