The one where Marian likens her liver spots to rust on a motor vehicle.

Synopsis: After Liz expresses curiosity about the fact that Marian now needs a cane, Liz gets a lecture about how old people, they just kind of rust out. A fifth panel would have had Liz display a 'bad attitude' by pointing out that she wasn't asking for a lecture about growing old but simply wanted to know why no one tells her a thing.

Summary: We eventually return to this blasé, bloodless look at aging when April's bandmates exhort her to just shrug off Jim's stroke because old people, they just get sick and old and die and we should just not worry about that. Also, Liz shouldn't feel too left out; I doubt Elly knew about the cane either.
