(Strip Number 552, Original Publication Date, 17 February 1984)
Panel 1: We start things off with Mike asking Elly if he and Gordon can come in for a little bit.
Panel 2: Elly tells him no, they can't. Y'see, she just got home and has a lot to do.
Panel 3: Michael asks "How come every time she's got a lot to do, we can't do anything?"
Summary: It's because Elly has very poor time management skills and is incapable of coping with distracting influences. Also, she's looking for a reason to be angry with him.
