In today's strip, we find out what Lizzie was doing in Phil's fish tank; she was taking one home to show Daddy!!

Panel 3: She reaches into the pocket of her overalls, produces one and smiles as she says "See!!" John, who's horrified by the fact that she's carrying a dead fish in her pocket, screams her name.

Panel 4: Since she's two and doesn't understand that she killed the fish, says it okay, Daddy, because she give him back. John, who's probably wondering how to explain this to Phil, has his head buried in his hands.
