We transition from undermining St Elly to making Keith more interesting than John. This is accomplished by having Brian show off his dad's model railroad.

(Strip Number 4614, Original Publication Date, 21 May 1986)

Panel 1: An excited Brian invites Mike to look at the model railroad his dad just set up.

Panel 2: As they walk down to the basement, Brian tells him that it has switches, tunnels, bridges and pretty much everything else.

Panel 3: Mike finds it difficult to believe that Brian's dad did all of this.

Panel 4: He then rolls his eyes when Brian repeats his mother's bad pun about this being what makes him a model husband.

Summary: Given who he is, it's clear that Mike's just pissed that he was beaten to the punch.
