Panel 1: As she gets ready to head out to her and Jim's reunion, Marian tells Elly that she's made them pies, rolls, three kinds of cookies and two cakes.
Panel 2: This means that the family will have things to enjoy long after she leaves.
Panel 3: Elly tells Marian that she wants her to know how much the family will appreciate this.
Panel 4: Elly and Marian are mildly perplexed when John says they'll think of her every time they look at the freezer.
Summary: They really shouldn't be. This is because they should be well aware of his being really weird when he tries to pay someone a compliment as well as his not realizing when he's said something stupid like this.
