(*: A less nonsensical reason would be that the chain of hardware stores Wilf was part of sent its franchisees to be trained on a new invoicing system; rather than have him commute, they all agreed to live in an apartment for the duration while renting their house for the Spring.)
Panel 1: We start off in the hallway of Mike's school as he tails Deanna.
Panel 2: We shift camera angles to show him walking beside her better.
Panel 3: We shift from a profile to a rear shot as he bumps into her and says "Oops" instead of "Where did that caption come from? Is this the campy sixties Batman TV show?"
Panel 4: As she looks him in the eye, he tells Deanna "Sorry."
Panel 5: A few minutes later, we're at the bus stop as Mike tells Lawrence that he talked to her.
Summary: Since Mike won't actually say anything because it causes syndromes that would require him to be checked out by Foreman and House, we're in for a week of annoying nonsense like this.
