Today's strip has the flight attendant assigned to watch over Michael about how John and Elly must feel that he's a very grown-up young man; this turns out to be half-right as Elly freaks out because HER BAAAAAAYYYYYBEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!! is going away. (Spoiler: She did this when he left for University and got married the second time.)

(Strip Number 652, Original Publication Date: 11 July 1984)

Panel 1: Now that we're at the airport, Elly gets to do something she can't in actual 2013 and say a tear-filled goodbye to Michael.

Panel 2: The flight attendant assigned to babysit Mike (let's call her Vicky) tells him that it must be a special day for him flying to Vancouver on his own.

Panel 3: Vicky then tells Mike that his parents must feel that he's quite a grown-up young man!

Panel 4: Elly makes a lie of that overly-optimistic statement by screaming "There goes my BABY!!"

Summary: This is a reminder that while Mike has a pretty nice time, Elly spends the next two weeks worrying about what he's doing owing to that odd quirk of hers I mentioned once. When she doesn't have to think about where he is, she's fine but when she does, she's all the time fretting that he'll make her look bad.
