We begin the Valentine's week arc proper with Mike angrily over-reacting to his friends finding his creepy-ass crush on Deanna risible. This leads to problems.

(Strip Number 545, Original Publication Date, 7 February 1984)

Panel 1: We find ourselves on the playground watching Gordon making a big production of calling Mike's attention to the fact that Deanna is walking towards them; since they too find Mike's crush on Deanna funny, Lawrence, Darryl and Janice laugh at his expense.

Panel 2: The group of them march Mike over to her despite his telling them to quit it.

Panel 3: They then chant "Hey, Deanna, it's your lover boy Michael." despite his muffled objections.

Panel 4: Mike astonishes everyone involved by yelling that he hates Deanna.

Summary: It would be more accurate to say that he hates having it known that he likes her. It would also be accurate to say that we're in for another episode of the Little Lynnie Show. In any event, this is not just a lead-in to another screw-up with Dee; it's also going to be a reminder that Mike is too dumb to get in out of the cold.
