At Least There's Some Color To This Void

I got confused between the fourth and fifth panel. He says "Yes" and then the phone is back on the hook? Couldn't there be a narration box that reads "Minutes later..." or something indicating that the phone call is over and Brutus has hung up?

What's Brutus doing there, just sitting in front of the phone anyway? Maybe if he was at a desk or if he was just walking by, it'd look normal but he's clearly at a dining room or kitchen table just sitting at the phone. Look at him. The first is literally this: *Brutus sitting at table, staring straight ahead* *phone rings* *Brutus slightly drops head and looks at phone, expression on face doesn't change*
