Snarky Candiru2

Thursday, 20 August 2015

We get in a shot at Farley being a big, stupid shambling idiot when the dog licks John's forehead when he 'knows' that he's supposed to leave John in the (in)capable hands of Doctor Elly.

(Strip Number 1079, Original Publication Date, 21 August 1986)

Panel 1: As John sleeps off his cold, Farley licks his face.

Panel 2: As Elly enters the bedroom with a washcloth in hand, she's confused by the fact that Farley is leaving.

Panel 3: She puts the damp cloth on John's forehead.

Panel 4: This causes him to say that he didn't want to complain but the last time she did that, the cloth smelled funny.

Summary: There probably won't be notes because we're getting back to reality today. Also, Elly's blank expression in the last panel clearly indicates that she wonders what was wrong with the last wash cloth. She can see Farley leave the room but she can't make the most obvious connection.
