(Strip Number 1204, Original Publication Date, 24 September 1987)
Panel 1: A little while later, Elly interrupts John's nap to ask him if he takes her for granted. He mutters HMMM? in response.
Panel 2: She asks a barely-awake man if they've been married so long, the romance has gone out of their relationship.
Panel 3: As he rises, she wants to know if he still looks at her with the same longing he did when they first met.
Panel 4: Since he's still comatose and is also blind as a bat without his glasses, he tells her to wait until he puts them on to ask that question.
Summary: I'm thinking that maybe John has always taken Elly a lot for granted. Can't put my finger on why but there's just something about the man that makes me think that.
