Well, he we are at the beginning of another work-week and month; it's obvious that we'll spend it watching New-Ruin Elly have fun driving herself crazy imaging John's conquests. That's because not only cannot Elly be content or trust him, he cannot win. We know that he's loyal but when he tries to point this out, he's covering up a lie.

That's tomorrow's horror; today, Connie has to talk Elly down.

Panel 1: We start off with an establishing shot: Connie and Elly are in a hovercar speeding down a highway. Elly tells her that she had a great time because she needed to get out. Connie tells her that it's no problem.

Panel 2: New-ruin Connie then tells her to not feel guilty about what Lurch the Gigolo did; if some dude makes a pass at an obviously-married woman like Elly, it's a compliment.

Panel 3: Elly asks her what it means when it happens to a single gal.

Panel 4: Connie says that then, it's an invitation. Connie means that it's an invitation to feel empty inside because the man splits the check, drives her home after the meal and talks about how he has work in the morning but hey, you're a swell girl, we'll get together sometime and speeds off into the night crushing her hopes. Elly's bug-eyed glare means she thinks it's an invitation to go roadside.

Summary: This is because Connie herself believes in the sanctity of marriage in so far as married women may not cheat. This also means that Elly, who really wasn't listening and is transfixed by the notion that the world is a non-stop orgy that people were too selfish to invite her to, is going to spend the rest of the week worrying about what John is up to.

ETA: The new banner depicts everyone's favorite aphasia victim back when he could tell Elly off.
