We end the week with John telling Elly that despite his objections to her working, Mike will simply have to get used to the new routine. When he says that Mike's nose is just out of joint because he got locked out, Lizzie stares at Mike funny.

(Strip Number 4414, Original Publication Date, 11 Febuary 1984)

Panel 1: It's a few hours after Elly arrived to find a terrified and angry Mike standing there locked out of the house; since she (unlike Steph Van Doleweerd) can't see the problem, she simply tells John that Michael doesn't like her working.

Panel 2: Lizzie looks in on them as John says "So....things change! He just has to get used to a new routine, that's all."

Panel 3: When he then says that Mike's nose is just a little out of joint, it startles Lizzie somewhat.

Panel 4: Her looking to see how out of joint Mike's nose actually is creeps him out to the extent that he asks her what she's staring at.

Summary: Is is just me or does anyone else think that John isn't getting the whole picture here? Part of me....okay, a lot of me thinks that Elly might have left the "I locked Michael out" part of the discussion.
