We come to the stupid sitcom moral of this stupid sitcom plot and get told that it all happened to make the Pattersons grateful for what they have.

Panel 1: As they walk to the bus stop, John and Elly agree that it's been a bad week for both of them.

Panel 2: Neither of them can remember when they've had so many white people problems.

Panel 3: When she remembers that most of the problems she has are just in her head and that they're usually so lucky, John starts to mouth Received Sitcom Moral One when he says that it's probably why they had problems.

Panel 4: They both smile and wait for the applause of the studio audience as he says that it's to remind them of how lucky they are.

Summary: The problem with stealing plots from sitcoms like Lynn does is that sitcom characters tend towards the static. This means that they'll promptly forget what they learned here and revert to declaring getting the wrong sweetener in their coffee the greatest tragedy that has ever occurred or ever will and go back to trying to eat each other's faces off.
