As the planning continues for his and Georgia's ceremony, Ignorant Idiot Phil has to be told that weddings have to be booked months in advance owing to the high demand.

(Strip Number 1125, Original Publication Date, 23 March 1987)

Panel 1: We find ourselves watching Elly and Georgia working on the wedding plans. So far, Georgia has ordered the invitations, called the photographer and booked the church and reception hall.

Panel 2: Furthermore, Phil, the best man and ushers will be in grey, the bridesmaids in peach and Lizzie in cream with peach smocking.

Panel 3: Gobsmacked Phil makes that stupid palms-out gesture when he asks why they're working so hard right now when the wedding is four months away in August.

Panel 4: Elly explains to an uncomprehending Phil that in wedding terms, this is the last minute.

Summary: Elly is, of course, right on the money. After all, Phil and Georgia are hardly the only people in the world getting married AND it takes a lot of time to plan all that pageantry. Also, it seems to be Phil's job to make a point of not understanding stuff like this.
