(Strip Number 1282, Original Publication Date, 23 April 1988)
Panel 1: For reason, we see John taking Lizzie for a ride in the formerly yellow and now orange over-compensationmobile and setting up a forced and stupid punchline by putting on the sun roof.
Panel 2: As they drive down the road, Lizzie notices that it's starting to rain.
Panel 3: It starts to rain quite steadily.
Panel 4: Since the sun roof on his some-weather car leaks like a sieve, John is doing a slow burn when Lizzie asks him if their getting soaked is why they're called bucket seats.
Summary: This is because he can anticipate the same arch lecture that we're bound to get in the notes about how only things that please Lynn should be permitted to exist.
