Snarky Candiru2

John backs down when he remembers that Elly feels like less of a person because she blew off Uni.

(Strip Number 1247, Original Publication Date, 21 January 1988)

Panel 1: Since John has the amnesia AND the brain damage, he doesn't understand why his telling Elly that her job isn't as important as his is might be why she's pissed at him because all he remembers is asking her for the keys to her car.

Panel 2: She reminds him that he just told her to face that her job isn't important to anyone, including her.

Panel 3: She gets all rage-facey and finger-jabby when she points out that just because she doesn't have a degree and just because her job doesn't pay much, that doesn't mean it ain't important; she then asks what he's gotta say to that.

Panel 4: What he's gotta say is TAXI!! because he's kind of gutless.

Summary: The sad thing is that Elly thinks that she actually got the point across when what actually happened is that learning-impaired John chickened out of the argument.
