Panel 1: Elly tells Mike that Mrs Mayes phoned because Gordon hasn't shown up for his beating yet and asks where he might be. Mike doesn't know....and surely shouldn't tell his idiot mother how to be a better useless bystander.
Panel 2: When Elly presses for more narking material, all he says is that he was going to go out somewhere for the night.
Panel 3: We tag in another pile of absolute uselessness when John parks next to the new car.
Panel 4: He then spots Gordon in the back seat rolled up in a sleeping bag.
Summary: We have to wait until Monday to see the two of them get together and be completely and utterly worthless and useless.
