(Strip number 4857, Original Publication Date, 14 October 1987)
Panel 1: As they sit down on a bench, Ed tells Elly that it all started one evening when he met Thelma sitting alone in the TV room.
Panel 2: He wasn't the forward type but he'd asked if she minded if he sat beside her.
Panel 3: Thelma tries getting him to dial down the treacle by reminding him that all she said was "No."
Panel 4: He keeps the needle where it's at by saying it was the way she said that she didn't mind having company that attracted him.
Summary: Well, if he sees it as a magic moment, who are we to judge?
