Anne tells Elly that since Steve doesn't share any details of his personal life with her, getting him to go to a marriage counselor is a total non-starter.

Panel 1: When Elly asks if Steve would agree to see a marriage counselor, Anne dismisses the idea by saying "Fat chance!"

Panel 2: Steve, you see, doesn't see that there is a problem at all and also would never discuss anything personal with a stranger.

Panel 3: Since Elly never bothered learning who Steve is, she sets herself up to be blindsided by asking Anne what makes her say that.

Panel 4: When Anne tells her that he never talks about his personal life with her, Elly stands around making the same sort of baffled frown we usually associate with Liz.

Summary: The interesting thing is that this is a plot point in Anne's Liography because when in doubt, Steve clams up, shuts down and stands around with a wounded-looking frown on his face because he doesn't feel all virile and shit. Getting the dumb bastard to explain why he feels as if cozy domesticity is the moral equivalent of being castrated with a chain saw is as likely to happen as his flying to the Moon.
