(Strip Number 618, Original Publication Date, 28 May 1984)
Panel 1: As our story continues, we find ourselves at the Pattermanse watching Lizzie tell Elly that she doesn't want to go to playcare today because she feels sick.
Panel 2: She tells Mommy that her ear hurts and her throat hurts.
Panel 3: Elly tells Lizzie that she CAN'T get sick this morning!
Panel 4: That's because Mommy has to go to work today.
Summary: Thus we begin another arc in which the bug that goes around hits Lizzie very hard. While it is nice watching them act all sympathetic, after the crisis gets over, Mike gets all anxious and clingy again and ends up getting packed off to the Coast to cure him of his abandonment issues.
