(Strip Number 1063, Original Publication Date, 25 July 1986)
Panel 1: As they swim away from their canoe, Phil tells John that he notices an island and says that they're going to make it.
Panel 2: Now that they've arrived at what's going to be their home for the next few days, John reminds Phil that they left their supplies on the canoe.
Panel 3: Phil tells him to forget about that for a second because their first priority is to dry off. This requires that they take off all of their clothes.
Panel 4: Since John is sort of British, he sort of recoils at this.
Summary: This is because his kind would say "I'm thinking! I'm thinking!" when given the choice between dying of hypothermia and having his brother-in-law see him butt-nekkid. Also, look for notes that talk about how drenched STOOPID ROD got after he flipped his silly, overloaded plane over being a big show-off who never listened to Lynn.
