In today's strip, Elly holds her peace when Connie makes a rather silly comment about how 'helpless' Ted is around the house.

(Strip Number 542, Original Publication Date, 26 January 1984)

Panel 1: It seems that it was Elly's night to drive them to inverted reality aerobics tonight; that's because Connie wants Elly to stay for a while instead of driving home.

Panel 2: She confesses that the place is a wreck because she's been working day-shift at Radiology all week.

Panel 3: As they take their winter coats off, Connie tells Elly that Ted is here but doesn't seem to be able to do housework.

Panel 4: Elly's reaction to Connie's wondering why a man with four university degrees can't operate a dishwasher is to narrow her eyes in disbelief.

Summary: This is because Ted is 'helpless' like a fox and hopes that Connie will do it because that's what women are for. We'll even have a Lynnsight that confirms that and everything.
