John really makes things worse this time; after all, you'd have to be a total wally to think that you can tell a smug, irrational idiot she's being a smug, irrational idiot and walk away safely.

(Strip Number 4270, Original Publication Date, 5 January 1982)

Panel 1: As Elly continues to frown in silence, John tells her "All right, be angry with me! But if you think that not talking is going to clear things up, you're wrong!"

Panel 2: As she makes that smug closed-eyes gesture of smug hostility, he then asks what is he supposed to do. Is he to make up her half of the conversation.

Panel 3: His pantomiming "Oh, John, you're right! I've been such a fool!" angers her to the point where she looks like she's about to burst.

Summary: Since Elly has no sense of proportion, humor or what's actually going on around her, John can look forward to being yelled at for trying to get a prima donna to simmer the Hell down.
