The one where Mike's making small talk with the delivery guy is interrupted by Elly about to give birth.

(Original Publication Date, 27 March 1991)

Panel 1: Having realized that he might have stupidly endangered Randy's safety for a stupid reason, Mike suggests that if the roads are that bad, he should shelter in place for while. Instead of saying "No shit, Sherlock", Randy says "Maybe you're right."

Panel 2: Randy starts talking about the electronics course he's taking at the community college while Mike stuffs himself with someone else's pizza.

Panel 3: We switch to Liz telling Elly that she came in to check on her and asks if there's anything she needs. Elly says that there is.

Panel 4: Mike nearly chokes on his pizza when Liz says that Mom needs an ambulance.

Summary: Having checked, it seems that whoever adapted this decided that the pizza van was too much quirkiness for broadcast. I'm inclined to agree.
