Panel 1: As Elly's disembodied voice tells Gordon and Mike that she called Mrs Mayes who expects him to go straight home and get punched out by a drunk dad who slobbers for forgiveness later only to do it again the next time he gets likkered up real good, Gord says that he's not going home.
Panel 2: This is because he knows that his dad will beat the whey out of him for what Elly allowed him to do to her car.
Panel 3: Mike tries to explain that delaying the inevitable just makes things worse...mostly because he speaks from experience in dealing with raging asshole parents. Gord knows this.
Panel 4: He makes a comment that baffles Mike when he says that if he's gonna the dirt kicked outta him, he might as well deserve it.
Summary: Perhaps Gordon can talk to Liz about living in fear of a volatile maniac who whines about how much she hates being a short-tempered killjoy who has no choice but to inflict WEIRD PUNISHMENT.
