(Strip Number 4125, Original Publication Date, 12 February 1982)
Panel 1: We find ourselves at the Pattermanse a few minutes after they've come back from the airport; Mike reminds us of this by telling Elly "They're gone,,,,we watched the plane take off an'everything."
Panel 2: As he looks at the master bedroom, he says that it still feels like Will and Carrie are still there; that's because he can smell Gramma's perfume.
Panel 3: He can also smell Will's pipe tobacco in the hall.
Panel 4: He exhorts Lizzie to come see what he means before John takes his shoes off.
Summary: This, of course, is because John has foot odor that would repulse Al Bundy; once his shoes come off, the eyeball-searing aroma overwhelms all other scents in its path.
