Today's strip is where Anne sets the plot for the month into creaking motion by suggesting that they host a Grubberware party; the 'joke' is that Elly thinks that she's too big a deal to do so.

(Strip Number 481, Original Publication Date, 14 October 1983)

Panel 1: We start things off in the middle of a conversation that's taken a turn Elly doesn't like much; that's because she cannot believe that Annie suggested that they throw a Grubberware party.

Panel 2: She then makes the mistake of saying that only typical suburban wives lower themselves to that sort of vulgarity.

Panel 3: Annie smirks at Elly rather knowingly as if she's about to say that they're typical housewives.

Panel 4: Elly rolls her eyes and asks when they should have it.

Summary: I should think that we're in for a Lynnsight that blasts the people of Lynn Lake because they treated Lynn 'wrong'; what, she'll bleat, is wrong with fawning over an arrogant, judgmental outsider who refuses to keep secrets?
