(Strip Number 6703, Original Publication Date, 31 May 1987)
Panel 1: It's early in the morning so Elly is getting up for the day.
Panel 2: She groggily smacks her lips in order to get herself going.
Panel 3: John, on the other hand, is still pretty much still asleep.
Panel 4: He pats the empty space where Elly was and grunts affectionately.
Panel 5: He moves over in hopes of getting a cuddle and a kiss from her.
Panel 6: He kisses the pillow thinking it's Elly and sets up the punchline by touching Farley.
Panel 7: Farley bobs his head up to find John kissing the air.
Panel 8: Farley returns the gesture by slobbering all over a horrified John.
Panel 9: When Elly walks back in the room, he squeals "Why didn't you TELL me you were getting up?!!" because it's somehow her fault this happened.
Summary: The fault is clearly his for trying fresh stuff with Elly when married people aren't supposed to do that. In Lynn's mind, John is supposed to be a bad person for wanting THAT sort of love because physical intimacy is scary and wrong and provides an evil feeling of release that is evil.
