Panel 1: Mike sits on the bed while a strange blob behind him talks about how they did something they should have done months before.
Panel 2: Yes, that's right, Mike, you were tired of them. Did you ever separate the two? Did you ever step in and be a parent? No, of course not. That requires assertive behaviour, something no Patterson will ever learn in their life.
Meanwhile, as Mike prepares for surgery, a 12-year-old boy echoes his sentiment. Holy crap, Dee, you look bad. No wonder LJ relies on full lips on her female characters.
Panel 3: I'm confused, is Mike sleeping with Shannon now? And can we please have dialogue that doesn't consist of "Statement!" "Agreement!"?
Panel 4: Cue the gag reflex. I'm tired of this "At the end of the day, they still love each other" bit. On the other hand, maybe we can point to this as another example of "Mike blows money out of his ass."
Ok... snark's hard! I have total respect for you, cookie77! And all you other past snarkers!
