We end the week with a reminder that Phil is still somewhat ambivalent about this whole marriage concept. Given that his primary example of family life is the Pattersons, I don't have it in me to blame him.

(Strip Number 406, Original Publication Date, 21 May 1983)

Panel 1: As she and Lizzie get ready to leave, Elly thanks him for the coffee. Phil thanks them for dropping by.

Panel 2: He then sets up next week's arc by asking if he can bring Georgia over for dinner some time soon. Elly is okay with that.

Panel 3: As they presumably walk to her car, Phil tells Elly that he's seriously serious about popping the question.

Panel 4: Given that he's somewhat antsy about all of this 'responsibility' thing, he wonders what a nice bachelor like him is doing in this situation.

Summary: The Lynnsight will, I suspect, be about how it took forever for Alan to grow up. The problem is that it will fail to address the problem of the only example Phil has of a friend being married is Elly's non-stop martyrdom and frustration.
