Panel 1: When Mike asks John if dogs could talk, John says that since they don't have the right muscles, he doesn't think so.
Panel 2: You see, your tongue has to be able to curl and bunch up to able to form words.
Panel 3: Mike asks John what kind of tongue Farley has.
Panel 4: When Farley angers and disgusts him by licking his face, John says "That kind."
Summary: If this had gone on, Mike would be yelling "AUGGH!! AUGGGH!!! I've been kissed by a dog!!" and ask for iodine and disinfectant because dogs are filthy things everyone hates.
