Elly reminds John that she can make his life Hell if he doesn't drop them off at the church instead of bombing on down to the dump like idiots.

(Strip Number 4836, Original Publication Date, 29 July 1987)

Panel 1: As anyone with a brain could have predicted, the garbage John has in the back is starting to stink up the car. As Elly fumes and Mike gags, Lizzie wants someone to roll down a window.

Panel 2: Elly tells John that she AIN'T going to the nuisance grounds; he can take them to the church and drop off the garbage later.

Panel 3: Since he's an idiot who doesn't want to admit that he should have waited until AFTER the ceremony to do this, he tries reminding her of what the smell will be like if they don't.

Panel 4: She shoots back by reminding her of the Hell he'll have to pay if they do.

Summary: John really doesn't like the idea of budging from untenable positions like this. I can think off the top of my head a lot of figures who don't listen to the smart person telling them not to do something dumb. This means that I (who wasted my youth watching Hanna Barbera cartoons) half-way expect Quick Draw McPattersaint to bellow "Hooooold on there, Baba Elly...I'll do the thin'in' around here....and DOOOOOOON'T you ferget it!!" because he's too stupid to realize what an idiot he is.
