The one where Jim and Marian don't much like long-term care homes and seniors' complexes because they don't like hanging around old people.

Panel 1: We find ourselves at a realtors' office watching Jim sign on the dotted line as he buys the condo. As he does so, Marian hints at how Big Decisions get made without informing younger people by guessing that they should maybe call Elly and Phil.

Panel 2: For reasons that never make sense to Elly, Jim calls her and her alone because he trusts her to be handy to a phone and tells her about buying the condo. Since she has a nightmare of one of them falling downstairs and being found dead a month later, she thinks that this is wonderful.

Panel 3: He then says that they'd looked into seniors' complexes and decided that they weren't ready for them quite yet.

Panel 4: Reason: there are too many "old people" waiting to move "up" instead of "out" hanging around those grim antechambers to the mortuary.

Summary: If there are notes, expect performative filial piety theatre from Lynn.
