The one where a police constable threatens John with arrest because Lynn believes that Five-O coddles criminals while threatening solid citizens like her with arrest because she is a GOOD driver!!

(Original Publication Date, 29 March 1991)

Panel 1: As a red-faced (and, as we'll see soon enough, naked) Elly pushes, Carol stands there looking lobotomized as Connie tells her that she has the stand-in for Dr Enkin on the phone while an ambulance is on the way. Liz asks them if she can help.

Panel 2: As Connie tells Liz that she needs to get towels, a basin and clean sheets and scissors, Randy The Pizza Guy asks "Aren't you supposed to boil water?"

Panel 3: We set up the joke at John's expense when Mike tells an overburdened Liz to tell Mom that he's just called Dad who's going to get home any way he can.

Panel 4: We next see him in a squad car as a policeman tells him that he should know that he could have been arrested for just jumping out into the street like that.

Summary: While I do not expect to see them, any sort of honest notes about this would have to grumble about traffic cops who should be out catching actual criminals instead of threatening poor Lynn with the suspension of her driver's licence for what they call antisocial recklessness.
