I wonder if John will realize that he can still try to have quality time with Mike; I'd like to think that he could actually apologize to his son and start playing but I don't hold out much hope that that'll happen. What we'll get is his moaning about how he ruined something that could still be mended if he tried hard enough.

I wish; what we'll get is his half-assed attempt at being a good parent damned near ripping Mike's arms out of their sockets.

Panel 1: We start out with Mike and John putting on their jackets. Elly, who's drying a glass, asks "Where are the two of you going?" John says "To the car wash; Mike and I are going to wash the car."

Panel 2: We next see their hover-wagon zooming down the street; Mike says "This is the one where you put money in the slot an'water comes out of a hose, right?" to which John replies "That's right; we're doing this by hand."

Panel 3: Now that we're at the car wash, we see John holding the hose, ready to spray the car; assuming that that must be wonderful fun, an enthusiastic Mike says "Let me, Dad! Let me- Let me!!" John, who sort of realizes that Mike might notbe strong enough to do this but who wants to prove he's a good guy, says "Okay, but be careful; it's hard to control the...."

Panel 4: We next see the hose seemingly taking on a life of its own and jerking Mike around like a ragdoll; as John rushes to grab on to Mike, he yells "HOSE!!!"

Summary: He meant well but if he wanted to bond with his child, he would have been better off taking him to the park or something....or at the very least, found an activity less life-threatening. Also, if he does complain to the owner, he doesn't have a leg to stand on; the man will point to the sign that states in both official languages that under no circumstances are children permitted to use the pressure washer. He could even be cited for endangerment.
