Panel 1: A while later, we find John doing something exceedingly futile and asking Elly if she too has noticed a change in Elizabeth. Elly says that she hasn't really noticed a change in her behaviour because she's been 'busy' since the Carter administration and also can't be asked to care about what children think lest she be thought of as a stay-at-home mother whose life is wasted by fixating on her children.
Panel 2: Since he forgot all about Liz asking him to his face if he's still going to love her when the new baby arrives, he's bug-eyed with panic because for some reason that escapes him (mostly because it's the most obvious thing in the bloody world), Liz is all moody and negative.
Panel 3: We switch focus by having to watch Liz staring with dread at the new baby's crib.
Panel 4: She then asks herself "Why did they put this stuff in MY room?"
Summary: Because they want to make me tell her "You answered your own question LAST Saturday!"; this is because Elly expects Liz to volunteer what she calls 'just a little help' and what most everyone else calls 'bonded servitude.' Also, it takes another few years for John and Elly to realize that Liz needs space that isn't occupied by a crib or playpen because they think reeeeeeal slllllooooowwwwww.
