(Strip Number 1302, Original Publication Date, 15 June 1988)
Panel 1: When an exhausted John says that he simply cannot look at more wallpaper samples, Elly tells him that there are only a few more books to look through.
Panel 2: He then says that he's getting a headache before making the mistake of saying that it would help if he knew what she wanted.
Panel 3: She tells him that she knows exactly what she's looking for. Having forgotten what 'exactly' means to her, he asks her what that is.
Panel 4: Since he'll die never really knowing who he married, her insouciant declaration that she'll know it when she sees it flabbergasts him.
Summary: This could also be part of the 'taking YEARS to get it right' equation: Lynn's own inability and lack of inclination to 'be forward' and 'unlovable' by openly stating a preference that it takes her years to decide on because she again doesn't want to seem pushy by acting too rashly.
