(Strip Number 1127, Original Publication Date, 25 March 1987)

Panel 1: Elly tells Georgia that she hasn't worked so hard on a wedding since her own.

Panel 4: John whispers to Phil that's because he showed up.

Summary: Itty-Bitty Teeny-Weeny Baby Man John likes to make annoying non-jokes that make Elly look like a fool who does unnecessary things and who worries about nothing in particular because he's a creep and also because he, like all weak baby men, fears strong women.
