(Strip Number 408, Original Publication Date, 24 May 1983)
Panel 1: Since he grew up on limp vegetables drowning in heavy sauce, gritty salads slathered in store brand dressing and meat that takes like shoe-leather swimming in crankcase oil, Phil is genuinely satisfied with Elly's horrible cooking and tells her to put away the bromo.
Panel 2: Given that she too must have grown up eating Anglo-Canadian cooking, Georgia offers to help Elly wash the dishes instead of burning the evidence.
Panel 3: Mike sets up the weak, weak punchline by telling Georgia that Phil must really like her.
Panel 4: Why she's astonished his telling her that she's the only girl he's ever brought here twice gag is beyond me.
Summary: Like I said, I wouldn't really mind this old stand-by if it weren't for the expectation that most of the reason that Alan had trouble with the ladies was that they feared the unstoppable horror of a small child who's dealing with a distant mother who doesn't actually seem to be able to pay attention to him.
