John doesn't understand the woman he married because if he did, he'd realize that the reason she's not okay with being forgiven is that she hates to waste feeling like shit.

Panel 1: We find ourselves at a diner watching Elly lament the fact that she only had John's car one day and it got smashed into. Oafish Putz John has been replaced by his mirror universe counterpart Kindly Nincompoop John and tells her that it's okay because it can be fixed.

Panel 2: When she tries to apologize for being bad, Understanding John says that as long as she isn't hurt, his car doesn't matter as much.

Panel 3: Since her feelings aren't being taken seriously, she tells him that she feels embarrassed and stupid and miserable and wants him to stop being understanding and get mad at her.

Panel 4: When he asks her why she wants him to be angry, she tells him that it would make her feel better.

Summary: We don't know which John we're going to get on a day-to-day basis. The only thing that is a constant is that his wife's point of view is always a baffling mystery to him. Also, Elly was expecting condemnation and scorn and has no idea what to do with tolerance and reassurance.
