In today's strip, Lynn finally reveals that she cribbed this story arc from a sitcom; that's because Elly's advice to be nice to the enemy is pretty much what Ward and June told the Beav.

(Strip Number 506, Original Publication Date, 23 November 1983)

Panel 1: As our story continues, we find Michael telling Elly that Brad is ruining his life.

Panel 2: He goes on to say that he's tried fighting with him, telling Teacher on him and even avoiding him and he's still getting messed with.

Panel 3: Elly says that this probably means that he should try a new line of defense by confusing the enemy.

Panel 4: Her suggesting that Michael be nice to him confuses Mike.

Summary: As well it should; real life isn't much like a sitcom so what worked with Clarence "Lumpy" Rutherford, Shelley "Binky" Barnes and Buford Van Stomm might work with Brad but it won't play in the real world.
