It seems, at least to me, that Connie will try and fail to convince Elly that she didn't mean that John was using the time away from hooooooooooome to step out on her; this is because we can expect Elly to thought-bubble that her friend didn't learn from experience. Reason: Pattersons are great at coming to erroneous conclusions.

Whoops; silly me. I forgot that Lynn has to show us how inconvenient it is to be weighed down by children.

Panel 1: It's late at night at the Pattermanse as an anxious Lawrence asks Mike if he's awake. Mike says no.

Panel 2: Lawrence tells him that since Elly returned, the sitter left. Mike responds to that by mumbling under his breath.

Panel 3: Lawrence tells him that since HIS mom is home, he wants to go home too. Mike asks him what kind of emergency could make him want to troop home at pitchdark o thirty in the morning.

Panel 4: Lawrence says he has to go to the washroom.

Summary: Ah, well; a lot of kids have shy bladder syndrome. It's sort of cute, in a mildly off-putting way, to encounter a child who gets freaked out by the prospect of having to use a strange commode. Too bad that Lynn seems to want us to believe that he's deliberately doing this to disrupt the busy lives of two crazy-ass, mopey, scatter-brained women.
