Elly astonishes Anne by demonstrating that she can be bought off with shiny trinkets.

(Strip Number 4331, Original Publication Date, 12 May 1983)

Panel 1: Elly responds in the negative both times when Anne asks if she quit and if she's getting paid now.

Panel 2: What she is getting is a subscription to her paper and a parking sticker for her car.

Panel 3: Anne is astonished because this costs Walsh nothing and reminds Elly that she's still working for free.

Panel 4: Since Elly needs to see her name in print, she smiles and says that it's better than nothing.

Summary: Actually, it isn't. What it is is a sign that Elly can be silenced with shiny trinkets so it's actually worse than nothing.
