(Strip Number 419, Original Publication Date, 8 June 1983)
Panel 1: We find a mildly angered John telling a glum Mike that his marks could have been better. Mike says that at least he passed.
Panel 2: John tells Mike to look at how he went down in three subjects.
Panel 3: Mike thought-bubbles that they never seem to look at the subjects he went up in.
Summary: What Mike and Lynn don't seem to want to realize that they are, in fact, not supposed to do that. That's because to them (as well as to yours truly), she and Mike sound as if they are whining "Can't you let me give up on myself and be happy instead of apply myself and be miserable? I was born LAZY and hate work."
