In today's strip, Bev rolls her eyes because her idiot sister-in-law tells her children to not get dirty. Hmmph. No God-damned wonder Laura thinks that Mike, Liz and April are subnormal; she probably thinks that stupidity runs in the Richards family. She might just be on to something.

(Strip Number 440, Original Publication Date, 14 July 1983)

Panel 1: As the children walk towards the barn, Elly asks them where they're going.

Panel 2: Mike says that Laura's going to show them the new kittens in the barn.

Panel 3: Lizzie adds that they're also going to see the little piggies. Elly tells them that that's nice.

Panel 4: She then says to not get dirty. Since that's kind of impossible, Bev rolls her eyes in mild derision.

Summary: As well she might. Most of what's wrong with this picture is that city girl Elly has no idea what she's doing but likes the idea of farm life anyway.
