Panel 1: We find ourselves watching John driving to work. For some reason, his face is a mask of blind terror and his arms have lost their ability to bend. Judging from his expression, one would be forgiven for speculating that the person he's driving past is asking himself "Do I smell soiled baby diaper?"
Panel 2: As he scrubs up to work on a patient, he's still in freak-out mode.
Panel 3: Jean is vaguely upset because his being a cartoon character in a cartoon freak-out gets in the way of his working on his patient properly.
Panel 4: As he walks by, Jean whispers "He tried sailboarding last night" to Helene the receptionist.
Summary: A nasty, unscrupulous person would edit that to "Had sex with Elly last night" because he'd find it more amusing than having to watch a pasty-faced dolt not being able to handle something that he didn't realize he wouldn't be good at.
