(Strip Number 1265, Original Publication Date, 16 March 1988)
Panel 1: Later that day, Lizzie asks Michael for a box and he won't let her have it.
Panel 2: He stands there as she has a tantrum about he's an unfair meanie that she has to tell on because he only wants it because she does.
Panel 3: Having seemed the have gotten what he seems to have wanted, he changes his mind and says she can have it after all. She says "I can?"
Panel 4: When she asks why he couldn't have done that in the first place, he says it was too easy.
Summary: Liz never quite managed to figure out that Mike does a lot of the dumb shit he did to her because she always gave him what he wanted: an angry and entertaining overreaction. Lizardbreath still doesn't understand this because she's Elly 2.0: a short-tempered, short-sighted cretin who assumes that she's the only smart person on Earth.
