(Strip Number 6118, Original Publication Date, 6 November 1983)
Panel 1: We start things off with Farley looking on as Lizzie rifles through a bag of Halloween treats.
Panel 2: She's delighted to find dat dere are four gumballs dat haben't even been cheweded yet.
Panel 3: As she chews her gum, she asks Farley if he wants some.
Panel 4: Farley chews the gum, finds it distasteful and spits it out.
Panel 5: She then asks him if he wants some toffee or a sucker.
Panel 6: The poor animal, while initially confused by having to deal with the odd-tasting food, has come to almost enjoy it.
Panel 7: Having successfully trained Farley to eat candy, Lizzie asks him if he wants a chocolate.
Panel 8: Elly finally decided to show up and asks Lizzie if she's feeding Farley her Halloween candy.
Panel 9: Lizzie says "No."
Panel 10: She gived him Michael's. Mike is not ecstatic.
Summary: The reason I mentioned the synchronization issue is that Elly was supposed to have hidden the candy away earlier in the week. Granted, compared to the ugly-ass habit of talking with a mouth full of food, the witless habit of antagonizing Mike and tormenting a dog, that's like comparing getting a paper cut to being shot in the face with a bazooka.
