In today's installment of the Christmas angel arc, a sales agent tells Mike that she doesn't think much of John's super-romantic idea to give Elly a crock pot as a present.

(Strip Number 518, Original Publication Date, 14 December 1983)

Panel 1: As our story continues, we find Michael about to buy Elly a nice gift: a glass Christmas angel. The saleswoman is impressed and tells him what a wonderfully romantic gift it is. (Ew. What's next? Telling him he's gonna get lucky?)

Panel 2: She then goes on to say that a person call tell a lot about a man by what he buys; she says that she'd call Michael sentimental.

Panel 3: Mike points at John and tells the woman that Daddy bought Mommy a crock pot.

Panel 4: John is flabbergasted when she tells Mike that she'd call Daddy something else.

Summary: That something else is a jerk who thinks of Elly not as a love interest but as a maid, cook and nanny.
