(Strip Number 400, Original Publication Date, 13 May 1983)
Panel 1: As she puts the groceries away, Elly tells Lizzie that Mommy stood up for herself today. Lizzie just wants a cookie and not a speech.
Panel 2: While Elly talks about how she went in there and said what was on her mind, Lizzie repeats herself about wanting a cookie.
Panel 3: Lizzie even yells that SHE WANNA COOKIE!!! to no avail because Mommy is telling her that she has to learn to be assertive.
Panel 4: As she horrifies Lizzie by ignoring her and putting the cookies away, she tells her if she doesn't stand up for herself, she'll wind up being ignored.
Summary: God, what a dumb-ass. First, she goes in, delivers her ultimatum as if she's about to be shot in the face with an anti-tank round, gets taken for a ride and ends up doing what she thinks Walsh did to her. The worst of it is that Lynn does think that Elly's defeat is a victory because she got acknowledged.
