We come to the home stretch of the arc when we see John isn't fond of Richard owing to his 'intentionally' humiliated him.

(Strip Number 873, Original Publication Date, 19 June 1985)

Panel 1: Elly explains to Annie that she and Steve need to sign some forms so that John won't be charged with breaking and entering.

Panel 2: Crabtree explains that John did so to retrieve The One And Only Potty before asking if it is indeed the only one Richard'll use.

Panel 3: Anne says yes and then laughs a little about what a handful Richard can be at times.

Panel 4: John mutters that Richard is actually a [[boxcar]] boatload.

Summary: Yeah, sure, he is. Five bucks says that in the years to come, John will convince himself that Richard told him to break into a house to keep from looking in the mirror and seeing a hillbilly moron who did a stupid thing because he didn't want his wife to yell at him.
