Jean's husband doesn't want to be there any more than John does but feels that he's gotta do something for the wife. He alarms John by explaining that it's why he got a vasectomy.

(Strip Number 1132, Original Publication Date, 9 April 1987)

Panel 1: When break-time comes, exhausted John looks for a soda machine.

Panel 2: When he finds one, he also finds Jean's husband talking about how they get to do the polka and waltz next.

Panel 3: He then confides that he that he doesn't really want to be here either but it's just something a man hasta do for the sake of his wife.

Panel 4: When he compares it to the unpleasant necessity of having a vasectomy, John is not ecstatic.

Summary: Well, this explains why Brittany doesn't have any brothers or sisters. It's also a distant foreshadowing of another strip in which John/Rod is cruelly mocked for blanching at the idea of having surgery to keep Lynn/Elly from having another baby.
