We begin a micro-arc in which Joan visits the clinic that has her downplay John's attempt to gush over her newborn.

(Strip Number 913, Original Publication Date, 8 August 1985)

Panel 1: We find ourselves at the clinic today. As John looks at an X-ray, Helène asks him if he can take a break in order to meet someone.

Panel 2: Said someone is Jean who came over to work to show off her daughter Brittany.

Panel 3: John gushes about how beautiful Brittany is.

Panel 4: Jean replies that she Brittany looks like Winston Churchill but John is saying the right things.

Summary: Way to make him look like a jerk, Jean. Here he is trying to be polite and you gotta piss all over it. Ah, well. That's the price we all have to be for your being the mouthpiece for a jerk.
