Why Are They Just Staring At Brutus As He Walks By?

Panel 1: Brutus is walking by with five o'clock shadow and a bathrobe on. Wilberforce and Gladys are in the background sitting in a chair, staring at him. Panel 2: Close-up on Gladys and Wilberforce. Wilberforce: "Dad is sick, so what is he smiling so much about?" Panel 3. Gladys: "Any day your father gets off work is a reason for him to smile."
I was not expecting a three-part storyline. I wonder if Brutus is going to the doctor today or if he just decided, like everybody else would, that he's just sick and can deal with that himself.

That robe probably doesn't smell pleasant anymore.
