In today's strip, Bad Boy Gordon suggests that he and Mike should spend some time at the Super Crazy No-Way Arcade of Decadence. When told that what Elly doesn't know won't hurt her, Mike thought-bubbles that what she finds out will hurt him.

(Strip Number 556, Original Publication Date, 23 February 1984)

Panel 1: Lynn dates herself horribly by having Gord hold up a dollar bill when he tells Michael that he has enough to for the two of them to go to Crazy Eddy's Wretched Hive of Scum and VillainyArcade and usher in a world of chaos and evilplay video games.

Panel 2: Michael reminds Gordon that Elly doesn't like his going in there.

Panel 3: Evil Gordon (he doesn't turn good until he too is terrified of the imbecile rage of idiot Elly) tells Mike that what she doesn't know won't hurt her.

Panel 4: Mike thought-bubbles that what she finds out will hurt him.

Summary: We can probably anticipate an ignorant screed about how useless and corrupting the video games Lynn lacks the patience, coordination and intellect to master are. What won't happen is a note explaining why it's good that Mike and Lizzie live in a constant state of fear about being subjected to the foul temper and imbecile entitlement of John and Elly.
