The one where Mike writes a terrible poem that's all about how empty he feels when his emptiness as a person is exposed.

Panel 1: Now that he's home, we find Mike trying to make sense of the fact that he can't relate to Martha as a real person the only way he knows how: writing pretentious bilge in Lynn Johnston's handwriting. He starts by wondering how one can describe the pain of longing before describing it as only a goofy teenage GIRL fixated on the forever and ever love of the week can.

Panel 2: He can't describe the hollowness and emptiness that is his state of being and how hearing Martha's name makes the mask of acceptance slip off and reveal the vapid dolt within.

Panel 3: He then observes that since his self-induced pain makes him a 'better' writer, he thinks that wallowing in misery is the key to being good at bad writing.

Panel 4: He then wonders if it's possible to be both famous and happy.

Summary: Eventually, he'll think that mechanically shoveling shit onto the page makes him a good writer. He'll still be wrong.

Also, she's awfully selective in when she pays attention to her children's behavior. April could run with scissors and Elly wouldn't care but she and John were damned sure she was either selling photos of herself to a porno site or reading Neonazi propaganda because that's what dead tree media tells them the scary Interwebs are for.
