We end the week with John lecturing Elly about not being too obvious about her annoying habits of prying and gossiping.

(Strip Number 4047, Original Publication Date, 15 August 1981)

Panel 1: We find ourselves in the master bedroom; as John and Elly settle down for a night of abstinence, he tells her that Ted and Connie's sudden relationship is none of their business.

Panel 2: He reiterates that point by says that whatever goes on between the two is no concern of theirs.

Panel 3: She rolls her eyes in irritation as he says that they're their friends and they have no right to pry.

Panel 4: She bugs her eyes out in confusion because he says that if she does find something out to kindly let him know.

Summary: Her bafflement seems to be inspired by her not wanting to admit that he knows her too well; he knows that she cannot not pry into things that don't concern her any more than she cannot not gossip. He isn't supposed to know that about her, you see.
