Panel 1: Françoise askes to talk to her Daddy alone without the Silly Sandwich Lady hanging arround. He says "Okay."
Panel 2: She asks what will really happen when he marries Elizabeth. His response is that she'll have two people to love her. Loving each other, on the other hand, not so much. They're sort of doing this to give her a hooooome.
Panel 3: Does she have to call her "Mom". He says that she can call her by her name. What Liz has to say about that is something we'll have to see later on.
Panel 4: Her next question: does she still get to keep her real mom? He says that's usually how things work and she'll try her best to show up but he's not making any promises. Again, let's see what Liz says when the time comes.
Panel 5: He reassures his child that life will go on much as before, only the Silly Sandwich Lady will be sleeping in his room next September. He's said all the right things and comforted her for now. I just wish that he hadn't set himself up to fail by not consulting Liz about the issues raised in Panel 3 and 4. Liz is sure to insist on being called Mom and Therese's presence is sure to be unwelcome. Let's see if he's man enough to stand by his word to his kid.
