Panel 1: It's nighttime at the Pattermanse and John and Elly are getting ready for bed. As she puts her hair up in curlers, Elly whines that she's gone and done it now.
Panel 2: Owing to her interference, Connie now thinks that Phil is the answer to her dreams.
Panel 3: As she puts cold cream on her face, she says that Connie refuses to see him for what he is.
Panel 4: Since John can't say "I told you so" because the reprint that had him warn her that encouraging this was a dumb idea, he says "Sometimes that's the key to a successful relationship." This, of course, "means" that he doesn't love the real Elly; he loves a fake Elly that only exists in his head.
Summary: All that's left now is waiting for Connie to go to Montreal and make a fool of herself.
