(Strip Number 4914, Original Publication Date, 6 January 1988)
Panel 1: At the clinic, Ted tells John that he had another late 'meeting' that meant nothing and came home a bit late only to find an empty house.
Panel 2: The place was spotless and there were fresh flowers on the table and a note.
Panel 3: After saying that said note was Irene telling him she'd had enough and he'd be talking to her lawyer, he asks John what he's supposed to say about a woman like that.
Panel 4: JP lets Ted down by saying that Irene's got class instead of agreeing that she's cruel and unreasonable and unfair.
Summary: Doctor Stupid clearly wanted John to agree that she was wrong and bad and cruel for having enough of being humiliated by a chicken-shit asshole who still won't admit that he blew his last chance. According to his Liography, he only stopped seeing himself as a kid playing a harmless game that people shouldn't be mad about when he finally looked in a mirror and saw himself as he is: a pathetic momma's boy who took entirely too damned long to grow the fuck up like everyone else has to. That time is not yet.
