(Strip Number 4835, Original Publication Date, 28 July 1987)
Panel 1: We find ourselves outside watching Elly yell at Mike and Lizzie to stop dawdling or they're going to be late for the wedding.
Panel 2: As she gets to the car, she asks John why he's loading the day's trash in the back of the station wagon.
Panel 3: Her eyes are out on stalks when she asks him why he thinks they could stop at the dump on the way.
Panel 4: He tries to deflect the question by reminding her that she says he never takes her anywhere.
Summary: When John does stupid crap like this, he tells himself that he's being more practical than the romance-addled females he looks down on. The problem is that he's revealed to be a big, stupid idiot who gets himself into an embarrassing mess that reveals what a nitwit he is most of the time.
