The one where a pizza truck is left stuck in the driveway to scare John into thinking he's coming home to a dead wife, dead baby or both.

(Original Publication Date, 26 March 1991)

Panel 1: As Liz marvels at the brutal storm because she's never seen one like it before, the door-bell ring.

Panel 2: Mike opens the door to reveal that someone I'm calling Randy the Pizza Man has arrived. When Mike says that he didn't think he'd make it, Randy says that neither did he.

Panel 3: He then says it's suicide to drive around out there so could he kindly call his boss. When Mike holds up all of the boxes of pizza, he says that he only ordered one.

Panel 4: Randy accidentally delights the idiot kid trying to get him killed by saying that as of now, this house is the last place on his list.

Summary: It should be noted that Randy does not appear in the televised version so they can find another means of scaring John into thinking that Elly and the baby are not fine.
