We come to the home stretch of the current arc when Mrs Baird's suggestion that Phil provide the pitter-patter of little feet her barren womb and her husband's cancer-withered body denies her leads him to run away screaming from the dread prospect of giving Elly another thing to beat him over the head with.

(Strip Number 4753, Original Publication Date, 30 January 1987)

Panel 1: Phil tries explaining to Elly that he isn't even married yet so would she please let him get though that crisis before he goes through the next one.

Panel 2: Thelma alarms him when she tries to sell the house by telling him that there's room for a baby.

Panel 3: Phil runs from the room screaming.

Panel 4: Thelma tells Elly that Phil isn't ready to look at houses.

Summary: Phil is also not ready to spend the rest of his life with Elly breathing down his neck and also not ready to go down in flames as horrifically as she did.
