(Strip Number 672, Original Publication Date, 3 August 1984)
Pane1 1: We find ourselves watching Elly tuck Lizzie into bed. Lizzie asks when Michael is coming home; Elly says in a couple of days.
Panel 2: When Lizzie asks this question again, Elly says "Soon."
Panel 3: Elly then asks Lizzie why she keeps asking this question.
Panel 4: A glum Lizzie thought-bubbles that it just isn't the same without him.
Summary: There's another reason she keeps asking: Elly never really gives her a straight answer nor does Mommy want to see that she's not the only one worried about Mike.
