We end the week with Elly being overly optimistic about John's ETA.

(Strip Number 4838, Original Publication Date, 1 August 1987)

Panel 1: Elly tells Mike to stand in the aisle and usher Phil's friends to one side of the chapel.

Panel 2: Having noticed that it's getting awfully close to when things start, Mike is worried that Daddy's going to be late.

Panel 3: Elly reassures Mike that nothing on Earth is going to make John miss the wedding.

Panel 4: John proves her wrong by cursing as he roots around in a dumpster like a Goddamned raccoon looking for his watch.

Summary: The problem with mocking John for doing something dumb is that we have to keep on doing it because he's not smart enough to learn from his mistakes. We find that out later on when his car keys actually do end up in a dumpster.
