The second movement in this week's aria about how only WE MOMS are allowed to criticize the pea-brained way Elly has made trumpet practice a living seething Hell has her grumble about Mike's reaction to being called a lazy, selfish brat who wants to stab his poooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooor mother in her non-existent heart.

(Strip Number 4436, Original Publication Date, 3 July 1984)

Panel 1: We start the practice session with Michael playing his trumpet drills for Phil.

Panel 2: When Elly asks Phil how Mike's doing, he says that he ain't doing too bad.

Panel 3: Phil tells Elly that, considering how little Michael practices, he's got a pretty good lip.

Panel 4: World-Weary Elly mutters "You're telling ME!" because she's been getting lip from Mike for a few months now.

Summary: Given that the theme of this symphony of mommy-jacking is that WE MOMS have to wait foreeeeeeeeeeever for the gratitude that should be instantaneous, we can expect notes about how WE MOMS don't want to nag but our kids want WE MOMS to be the heavy all the time.
