(Strip Number 502, Original Publication Date, 18 November 1983)
Panel 1: As they walk towards a small, leafless bush, Mike tells Lawrence "Brad thinks that he's so tough. Well, I'll show you what I could have done to him."
Panel 2: Mike yells in sheer frustration at the stupid situation he found himself in as he stomps the bush into little pieces.
Panel 3: As Lawrence surveys the wreckage of what used to be a small shrub, he says "Neat, Mike..."
Panel 4: He then astonishes Michael by saying "If Brad was a bush, you'd'a creamed him for sure."
Summary: All that remains now is for Elly to get a heads-up so she can say something that doesn't help.
