We end the week with a reminder that John's point of view is always a decade and a half in the past.

Panel 1: We find ourselves at the end of another working day watching Jean tell John that he looks tired. He tells her that he's dead on his feet.

Panel 2: As he drives home, he reminds us that he's kind of stuck in the past when he tells himself that he's returning to a loving wife who'll give him a back-rub and serve him a hot meal.

Panel 3: This will be followed by sinking into the soothing warmth of his recliner and listening to soft music.

Panel 4: Now that he is home, we see him perched on an ottoman eating a TV dinner from a TV tray as Farley is in his recliner, Elly is taking a nap after a busy day of chasing the children watching a Western on the box. As he eats his hot meal analogue, he thinks to himself "One out of four ain't bad."

Summary: What John's deal here is that he still seems to think that he's just come back from his really crappy honeymoon and is still a young married person. This seems to be why he's a shitty father....he's still in the waiting room waiting to be told what sex his first kid is!
