As Elly wonders where John could be, John's channeling of Clark Griswold confuses two working-class stiffs.

(Strip Number 4839, Original Publication Date, 4 August 1987)

Panel 1: As an anxious Elly stares at her watch, Marian comments on how lovely the chapel is.

Panel 2: Elly points out that John should have been there an hour ago before wondering where he could be.

Panel 3: We shift focus to alley behind the grocery store where a workman I'll call Doug tells his buddy Lou about the crazy man in the dumpster who wants out right away.

Panel 4: Neither Doug nor Lou can figure out why a man who's late for a wedding is stuck inside a dumpster because the only reasons he could be are all really stupid.

Summary: A fifth panel would have John feel the burning of shame because his misadventure would make the garbagemen laugh heartily at his expense.
