In today's strip, we find out that Mike doesn't know that crabs can't live in suitcases.

(Strip Number 682, Original Publication Date, 17 August 1984)

Panel 1: Lizzie is delighted to see that her primary caregiver Michael has returned.

Panel 2: She asks him if he brought her anything from the Coast.

Panel 3: He tells her that he found her something real neat on the beach.

Panel 4: He then horrifies Elly into a fugue state by asking her how long crabs can live in a suitcase.

Summary: You'd think that she'd remember that when this sort of thing happens in the sitcoms she stole from back then, the lead character either rolls her eyes in irritation or shrugs in annoyance; then again, in her sitcom, the characters always act as if every little thing is the end of the freaking world or something. It's like Curtis with white people.
