Today, Elly gracelessly shoots her stupid mouth off and makes Irene out to be some sort of floozy because she never learned that if she doesn't have anything nice to say, she should just shut her damned mouth.

(Strip Number 4583, Original Publication Date, 18 March 1986)

Panel 1: Now that Ted and Irene have returned from their honeymoon, a delighted and somewhat envious John tells him that he'd never expected the two of them to pull the stunt they did.

Panel 2: This is because John is surprised that after 12 years of working together, the two of them suddenly decided to marry.

Panel 3: He asks Irene how it feels to be married to the boss.

Panel 4: When Elly puts her foot in her mouth and says it's better than being "the other woman," Ted and Irene are taken aback while John looks as if he wishes there were a hole he could crawl into and die.

Summary: The odd thing is that if notes are still a thing, we're in for a Lynnsight about how Irene was sort of a walk-on character whose sole contribution was to take Ted out of the equation until the final phase of the soap opera revenge fantasy.
