Panel 1: John asks April to apologize to Elly. Reason: He only knows Flapandhonk's biased version of events and he's too stupid to figure out what happened or ask what really went on. April says she will in a minute.
Panel 2: John insists on her doing so post-haste. To remind her who the parent is, he pulls her chair away from her work station. Douche.
